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.

“I signed up for The Leader’s Roundtable because it appeared to be the best opportunity to receive consistent and thorough training. From the very first day I was learning concepts that I never thought about. After I completed the series, I had my CFO join.”
