Designed and curated by the Leadership Louisville Center, a trusted regional resource for 40 years, the courses prepare leaders to execute at the highest level.

While in the Leadership Green Room, participants are immersed in breakthrough thinking alongside potential clients and professional peers, leaving with greater confidence, knowledge and networks.

All courses are hosted at the Center’s new location at 707 W. Main Street in Louisville, Kentucky. The facility is designed to be a nationally-recognized center for leadership development and social innovation, surrounded by natural light and equipped with modern technologies and amenities. Participants will enjoy a learning environment that promotes the exchange of ideas and stimulates creativity. Visitors to Louisville have easy access to hotels and after-hours activities in the heart of downtown’s Museum Row.

  • “The Center has been an important partner as we continue to build and develop strong leaders throughout our company. For all of our team members, the variety of curriculum allows for us to meet the learning and development needs of each individual. They are also bringing best-in-class executive education courses to our backyard.”
    – Scott Colosi (LL ’16), President and CFO, Texas Roadhouse

  • “Networking is an important tool for us in our Learning Framework at GE Appliances. We encourage our leaders to engage and learn from others outside of our business and this gives our leaders that opportunity. The level of interaction, external thought partners/facilitators, and variety of topics help us to round out the offerings available to our leaders. We are happy to have it as a part of our leadership programs.” ,
    – Marla Debbaudt, Enterprise Learning Leader for GE Appliances, a Haier Company

  • “We send quite a few people to the Green Room courses. We are a relatively small company and we don’t have a training department or a trainer. We’re using the Green Room significantly.”
    – Dave Dafoe (LL ’16), CEO, Flavorman

  • “CandyRific realizes the importance of investing in their staff and the Leadership Green Room provides great options for our team members to grow themselves. The seminars provide immediate results and our staff return with lists of ideas to apply to CandyRific. The response has been nothing but rave reviews from our staff and we are very happy with our decision to use The Leadership Green Room as a way to continue to invest in our staff’s growth.”
    – B.J. Ruckriegel, CFO, Candyrific
