Leadership Training

Maximize Leadership Potential

Strong leaders make strong organizations. Help current and aspiring leaders at your institution meet their full potential with a leadership training program from Creighton. Our programs are fully customizable–some organizations opt to offer one or two courses to employees, while others put together a longer program.

Led by expert instructors, our leadership courses are engaging and effective, and true to our Jesuit values, every course is based on principles of ethical leadership. Partner with us to put together a program that fits your organization’s specific needs. The broad range of options means we have courses for leaders who are tackling all types of challenges. The courses below are applicable to any industry, and if you work within a health care institution, you’ll want to also take a look at our Executive Healthcare Education.
