Duke CE Labs

Duke CE Labs was an idea born out of the realization that, the more contextual leadership becomes, the more experimental we must be in discovering what works, and what doesn’t, in activating leadership systems within organizations.

If Duke CE’s purpose is getting leaders ready for what’s next, Duke CE Lab’s purpose is to discover what’s next for leadership development.

In a world as volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous as the one we inhabit today, we cannot simply think our way into a new ways of acting. Research alone is not enough. We must also act our way into a new ways of thinking by experimenting with new technologies, methods and approaches to uncover where true leverage lies in building the leadership system capabilities required to survive and thrive in an increasingly complex world.

We do this by working collaboratively with partners and clients to:

The ultimate goal of Duke CE labs is to positively shape the future of leadership development to ensure that each and every leader on the planet is ready for what’s next. Throughout the year we will be conducting a number of focused initiatives, conducting research studies, running first of a kind experiments and piloting innovative interventions. We would love you to join on this journey of discovery as we work together to shape the future of leadership development!
