Leadership inSITE™ builds leadership capability in four “insights” that are crucial for successful, high potential leaders – Strategy, Innovation, Transformation, and Execution (SITE). It is the product of a highly collaborative process involving input from a cross-company, multi-industry group of leadership development practitioners from numerous companies – in partnership with Business inSITE Group. Leadership inSITE™ has been co-designed with company input to ensure the entire experience is practical, real-world, user-friendly, and distinctly cost-effective. Launched in 2012, we’ve had over 375 participants from 38 companies, representing 27 countries, and 16 functional disciplines.

Through this shared leadership development approach, we are accelerating Leadership in Strategy, Innovation, Transformation, and Execution.

  • Prepare high potentials for eventual senior leadership roles in participating companies

  • Expose participants to global issues, perspectives, and solutions

  • Deliver a customized leadership development experience that meets the specific needs of participating companies

  • Provide participants with a broad perspective on business and leadership challenges and ideas that cut across multiple industries and company cultures – recognizing that high potentials would not typically be exposed to this cross-company and cross-industry perspective in company-specific programs

  • Keep program costs below what it would cost individual companies to achieve the above objectives on their own

Content Priorities


so that participants understand the strategic internal business and external global environmental contexts in which they operate, practical ways to apply strategies, and their role as leaders in building competitive advantage


so that participants understand the organizational capabilities that characterize highly innovative and creative organizations, practical ways to apply these capabilities, and their role as leaders in creating and sustaining growth through innovation


so that participants understand the power of agility and transformational change, practical ways to apply these principles, and their role as leaders in championing successful cultural and organizational transitions


so that participants understand the value chain by which businesses make money, practical ways to apply this understanding, and their role as leaders in creating business models that drive performance

Integrating Lenses

In addition to the four content priorities described above, Leadership inSITE™ weaves together the development experience with five learning lenses that integrate not only the content, but also the pre- and post-program activities:


the participant’s role as a leader of other highly talented people


the participant’s role as a global business citizen


the participant’s role in finding new avenues for business growth


the participant’s role in serving and partnering with customers


the participant’s role in anticipating and shaping the future

Learning Perspectives

The learning process during Leadership inSITE™ is facilitated by the following complementary perspectives:

  • Executive Perspective – to promote an emphasis on leaders teaching and mentoring leaders, the program includes executives from participating companies who tell stories, talk about lessons learned, engage in question and answer dialogues, and describe real-life company case studies and scenarios that offer insights into successes and failures which form the foundation for reality-based leadership development
  • External Experts – specific content areas feature external experts from academia and consulting who offer special insights into what works and does not work across multiple industries, geographies, and business situations
  • Self and Peers – participants engage in self-reflection based on feedback and learning, and share insights and best practices through peer coaching and team assignments
