Ashridge Leadership Centre

The Ashridge Leadership Centre (ALC) offers informed thinking on the subject of leadership through dialogue, research and writing.

About ALC

The Ashridge Leadership Centre works with senior leaders in organisations around the world. We help you build self-awareness to understand the organisational challenges you face and develop strategies to manage them.

At Ashridge we recognise that a ‘one size fits all’ approach to leadership does not work, as that ignores the need for congruence between who you really are and how you lead. Instead we help you to connect your values to your preferred approach, and to leverage your innate strengths to maximum effect.
