Case-In-Point Intensive

Case-in-Point is a powerful teaching methodology in which you, the practitioner, use a class or team as the case study for learning about leadership. Because the Case-in-Point method is so challenging for both teacher and learner, it can be hard to find a space to practice and learn through trial-and-error. At KLC you’ll find like-minded colleagues and a strong support system of experienced master-practitioners, Tim Steffensmeier, Jill Hufnagel, Lynette Lacy, and Peter Cohen. Our Case-in-Point Intensive gives you the training and support you need to make fullest use of this powerful teaching method.
