Developing your leaders is more critical today than ever. We’re here to help.


What is The Council Academy?

The Council Academy is comprised of uniquely interactive programs that are designed to have a qualitative impact on your staff’s performance and growth. Whether you’re looking to improve the leadership skills of your emerging leaders or those climbing the C-Suite ladder, our goal is to provide industry-specific, competency-driven, world class talent development resources for your firm.

How is The Council Academy different?

  • All experiential workshops begin with an assessment to assist participants in getting maximum benefit from the experience
  • Customized exclusively for Council members’ peer-to-peer networking
  • Small class sizes to ensure individualized attention
  • Conducted by experts in the topics being presented
  • Post-workshop follow up to ensure learning transfer
  • Every program may be brought in-house and offered exclusively for your team
