A Master Class in Leadership for Senior Executives

Dr. Bell has drawn upon his many years of cross-industry experience to create The Leader’s Roundtable: A Master Class in Leadership for Senior Executives. This unique and exclusive program is specifically designed to assist CEOs, presidents, and senior officers in further developing their leadership skills. World-class leaders create world-class businesses.

Selected members represent an experienced group of leaders from a diverse group of industries. The Leader’s Roundtable provides a rare professional opportunity to work with and learn from a group of peers outside your particular business or industry. You will study proven leadership best practices with relevant business cases to facilitate problem solving and action planning. The Leader’s Roundtable environment allows you to share ideas, questions and perspectives in a confidential setting with peers who understand the weight of your daily responsibilities.

The year-long Leader’s Roundtable is an executive leadership development program personally designed by Dr. Gerald D. Bell to assist C-suite and senior executives in becoming world-class leaders. The Leader’s Roundtable will teach you how to build your personal leadership effectiveness so that you can lead others successfully to grow your business. In today’s environment of constant, rapid changes, increasing demand for immediate access to products and services, and unprecedented visibility coupled with external scrutiny, business agility is more important than ever. Investing in yourself and your leadership skills by assessing not only where you are, but who you are, yields the highest returns and will set your company in the right direction.

Leader’s Roundtable Experience

This year-long, twelve-day professional development program is an in-depth, group-live, highly-participatory learning experience with practical take-home value.

  • In advance of The Leader’s Roundtable, you will participate in the Achievers seminar and complete the Bell Personality Profile a 360-degree survey where you will request confidential feedback from those that know you well (i.e., your colleagues, family members, friends). This will provide personal and practical insights for improving your leadership practices.
  • Complete custom-designed pre-work assignments for each of The Leader’s Roundtable sessions, preparing you to engage deeply on each topic and focusing on what is most relevant for you and your organization.
  • Agree to and enjoy total confidentiality to promote and encourage openness and trust during each session.

Build Your Peer Network. Building relationships is paramount to great leadership. This program creates an engaging environment for senior executives to connect and learn from others that share and understand the weight of their daily responsibilities.

Gain Best Practices. Learn key principles and best practices that produce optimal results. Bell Leadership leverages more than 50 years of research on the most effective and ineffective leaders with real business application. You will also learn valuable lessons from discussions and case studies with your peers.

Apply Key Principles. The Leader’s Roundtable offers the benefit of spaced learning.  The cohort gets together for a deep dive for 2 days to go through key concepts. Then everyone receives some homework with the opportunity for application in their life and their organization. The cohort will come back together 6-8 weeks later to discuss and continue building on what you have learned. 

Drive Results. Members of The Leader’s Roundtable will work hard, have fun, think creatively, and build themselves and their business.  Using the powerful, practical leadership principles, each member will develop an action plan tailored to their situation with practices they can use immediately to drive.

Continue Your Learning. After completing The Leader’s Roundtable, return to Chapel Hill for an annual Bell Leader’s Roundtable Mastery program exclusively for our Roundtable graduates. An excellent way to further your development, build relationships and learn with other senior leaders.

  • C-suite and senior executives, who have broad management experience and leadership responsibility for one or more teams.
  • Attendees of Bell Leadership’s Achievers™ program: Achievers™ is a pre-requisite for The Leader’s Roundtable. If you have not attended, you can register for an upcoming program prior to the first Leader’s Roundtable meeting.
