The Donald J. Schneider School of Business and Economics at St. Norbert College has announced the launch of the Center for Exceptional Leadership.

Created to provide development opportunities for the region's senior and emerging business leadership, the CEL offers a highly individualized program of assessment, planning, development, coaching and mentorship, all focused on building confident, visionary champions of an organization's mission.

Emphasizing character and principles, the CEL develops leaders who will drive sustainable success for their organization, its people and their community.

"The unique design of the Center for Exceptional Leadership came together as approximately 60 local executives volunteered on the center's advisory board and committees to identify and develop the processes, curriculum, metrics and assessment tools," said Tom Wiltzius, executive director for the CEL. "The result of their efforts is the best resource for leadership development in our region, the state and the Midwest, and at a reasonable investment."

The Center for Exceptional Leadership draws on an extensive network of expert, certified professionals both to conduct leadership assessments and to deliver individual and cohort-driven development experiences.

"The Donald J. Schneider School of Business and Economics is excited about the launch of the Center for Exceptional Leadership," said Kevin Quinn, dean of the Schneider School. "In addition to our excellent undergraduate business and economics programs, and our MBA, the Center is intended to make real contributions to the quality of the northeastern Wisconsin community. Our faculty and staff are working hard to help make this region a destination for not only our own young people, but for talent from all over. Organizations will no longer have to send their emerging leaders to other parts of the country to get access to world-class behavior-based leadership development," Quinn added.
