Alexander Grashow is a member of CLA's Executive Committee and Managing Director of its consulting practice. As such, he is responsible for the overall design and content of CLA programs as well as the recruitment and development of CLA associates and affiliates.
Having used and delivered programming, consulting, and coaching in the Adaptive Leadership framework for many years, Alexander has worked extensively with executive teams and is experienced in delivering adaptive leadership in a variety of formats. Among the CLA clients with whom he has worked are Watson Wyatt, CARE and the United Jewish Communities. Regardless of client, Alexander focuses on what change and impact are possible within the context of the assignment, whether it is a two-day or a two-year program.
Prior to joining CLA, Alexander was at The Synergos Institute, where he was the co-founder and director of the Bridging Leadership Program, which worked in partnership in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the United States to develop collaborations across sectors. In this capacity, he developed training, research, and communities of practice among international businesses, business schools, and national non-profits.
He is the co-author, along with Ron Heifetz and Marty Linsky, of a forthcoming book to guide practitioners in the hands-on, day-to-day work of exercising leadership and doing more for what they most care about. A graduate of Wesleyan University and a serious Japanese printmaker, Alexander derives "both joy and courage" from his wife and children.
