Tailored for performance

Your organization has unique goals. Our experts will work with you to build customized learning and development programs that help you achieve these goals.

We don't do generic, cookie-cutter classes—we develop programs matched to your specific needs.


"Over the last several years, the Tippie Leadership Collaborative has provided a format that has allowed us to equip our group with valuable tools to develop leadership skills, build effective teams, and hire and retain a talented workforce. They have also given us a platform to openly discuss how to lead ourselves and others through challenging and uncertain times."
Bonnie Bootsmiller, Director of Operations, Iowa City VA Health Care System

Designed for impact

Once we understand your needs, we help you design a development experience that challenges and excites your future leaders. No dry, droning, off-the-shelf lectures here—each experience is characterized by active learning techniques that make the content both engaging and applicable to participants' challenges.

Our education programs range from half-day workshops to year-long programming on topics such as, but not limited to:

  • Leadership fundamentals
  • Collaboration and teamwork
  • Employee engagement and well-being
  • Talent management
  • Creativity and innovation
  • Remote/virtual work
  • Change management
  • Strategy and decision-making
  • Diversity, equity, and inclusion
  • Business analytics
  • Communications and problem solving

The Iowa difference

Why partner with Tippie to develop your leaders? Here are a few things that make us unique from other learning and development providers:

Partnership focus

With us, you are never treated as a number or just another client. We customize our content to meet your specific needs. Whether in person or virtual, we don't expect you to come to us—we can come to you. Consider us your learning and development partner, relentlessly striving to help you achieve your dreams.

Results that matter to you

We only design programs that will drive the kinds of outcomes you want for your organization. And no need to guess if your leaders are building competencies through our programs—we measure those competencies to ensure that you get a high return on your investment.

World-renowned educators

Even though our faculty are frequently quoted in the Wall Street Journal and have appeared on the Today Show and NPR, what we care about most is engaging your executives and managers in the classroom or online. And we have decades of experience doing this as consultants in the health care, manufacturing, insurance, energy, retail, and non-profit sectors. We put our unmatched expertise to work for you. Get to know our educators and see them in action.

Competitive pricing

As a nonprofit, we can meet your company’s customized needs at a more affordable price point than most large or boutique consulting firms. And we can "design to a price" or "price to a design" depending on your specific goals. Either way, let us work with you to design a program that creates real value for your organization.
