Leadership Circle

The Leadership Circle provides Chicago's emerging leaders with access to exchange ideas with peers and senior executives through the Mentorship Programs and the Leadership Circle Program Series. At these events, executives will learn from and gain the perspective of experienced leaders. Engagement in the Leadership Circle will help grow talent into strong and committed thought leaders.

The Leadership Circle Advisory Board and Leadership Circle committees provide advice and insight to The Executives' Club of Chicago on matters of Leadership Circle programming, membership and mentorship programs. In addition, the board and committees provide valuable governance and leadership experience to participants.

For more information about the Leadership Circle and other leadership development opportunities at The Club, contact Brett Taylor, Leadership Development Manager at btaylor@executivesclub.org.
