Thought Leadership

We publish expert thoughts on the latest business trends and bleeding edge leadership development research, as well as ICAN news, ideas, graduate stories, articles written by our faculty, testimonials from our Board of Directors and more.

“I explored qualities I knew about myself, but previously hadn’t really given a lot of thought . I now think more intentionally with customers and my team, and think more empathetically about where they might be coming from. It’s changed my interactions with people forever. I’ve embraced this idea that my company is one large whole and made me think about some of the larger reasons of why I do what I do.”
