Leadership Development for the Digital World
“Make every effort to participate in this course. It should be required for those in leadership.”
– TechLX graduate feedback
As the technology agenda grows bigger and bolder, there’s a new urgency to get today’s high-potential and emerging technology leaders prepared to take on tomorrow’s C-level roles. Strengthening their leadership capabilities and business acumen will require new skill development as well as the ongoing advice and support of experienced mentors and trusted peer networks.
Presented by Ouellette & Associates, The Technology Leadership Experience (The TechLX) provides an in-depth learning journey for a cohort of mid-level technology leaders within a single city. Through a combination of classroom workshops, peer networking, problem-solving, and mentoring, the program does more than build the next generation of technology leaders; it creates a powerful technology leadership community.

Thank you for empowering us with the needed tools and bringing this awesome program to the St. Louis region.”

What participants are saying about The TechLX
HIGHLY suggest this program for anyone who is emerging into leadership or even those with experience. I somewhat expected platitudes, but this presented real world insight that is TRULY helpful.
It was refreshing to talk with people who understand what I’m going through who work in different companies. There was very much an, “Oh I’m not alone in this!” factor. We hope to continue to meet after the program ends.
I really enjoyed being pushed out of my comfort zone, and it’s taught me how to be able to work better in any relationships, but specifically relationships with business partners
Through networking, in-class content, and mentoring, my career will continue to benefit from this program.
This leadership course is a great introduction for IT leadership to embrace change, innovation, and empathy!
A good opportunity to take a step back and reassess management style and opportunities to strengthen my leadership skills and the skills of my team.
Large and informative. Strengthens aspects you should already know, while also focusing on things we may know but often forget when actually living in our jobs.
