Executive Leadership Academy


As part of Cable’s commitment to supporting leadership development and growth opportunities throughout each career stage, we developed the Executive Leadership Academy. The Academy offers two courses in the spring and two courses in the fall. When you complete both courses you are awarded a Foundations of 21st Century Leadership certificate and become eligible for the Advanced Leadership Program.

Our fall sessions will be held at Lipscomb University’s College of Leadership and Public Service on…

  • September 21st from 12:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
  • September 22nd  from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

This fall’s Cable Executive Leadership Academy features internationally known faculty and local leaders who are experts on individual, organizational and community change.

We are excited to announcing that Dorie Clark will be joining us for our Executive Leaders Academy.

CABLE 3001 – 21st Century Leadership in a Multicultural World: Managing and Leading Across Generations, Cultures, and Sectors in Communities and Organizations

William Frey of Brookings calls it a diversity explosion remaking the US workforce and electoral map. Nashville is one of the fastest growing, most diverse cities in the country.

Leading in a multicultural society is not only a given in today’s world; it is an opportunity to build on research showing diverse teams produce better solutions.

The key for the successful leader is an intentional approach: Respecting, recognizing, and building on the different perspectives and talents of every person in your organization—and realizing the power of generations, races, genders, and ethnicities working together professionally and in the community.
