Center for Creative Leadership

CCL Has Enduring Impact through the Caldwell Fellows

Whether it’s the executive who’s responsible for making sure your custom-engraved iPod gets to you in just three days or the critical care pediatrician working to save a child’s life, there is little question that Caldwell Fellows alumni are making an impact — in their workplaces, in their communities and around the world.

The Center for Creative Leadership has been an integral part of the Caldwell Fellows program and its impact since the beginning, a relationship that spans 40 years.

On January 2-4 we had 22 students at the Center for Creative Leadership for our annual capstone leadership training. Concurrently, we had a group of alumni in training as well (a one time event in cekebration of our 40th anniversary.)

The picture above shows Caldwell Fellow alumnus John Higdon (class of 83) and his daughter Summer, Caldwell class of 2014. They are pictured with Bill Sternbergh who has trained every class of Fellows at CCL for 40 years!
