Custom Programs

Our Approach


There are no off-the-shelf solutions to today’s complex challenges; they take strategic insights, technical expertise, and trusted partners to design and implement. That’s why we craft customized programming for your industry and unique learning and development goals.

From preparing your organization for accelerating technological and geopolitical change to cultivating resilient leaders and strategic thinkers, our customized approach helps executive teams, high-potential employees, membership groups, and business units tackle mission-critical issues together. Any of our courses can be tailored for the needs of your team or organization. CSIS experts and coaches deliver in-person and virtual programming in a collaborative setting on:

  • Geopolitical trends and risk analysis
  • Critical skills in leadership and communication
  • Strategic planning and innovative problem-solving
  • Policy dynamics and ecosystem


Identify your team’s development targets and work with CSIS to set a learning trajectory that meets the challenges and goals unique to your organization.


Engage in policy roundtables with experienced practitioners and go deep with world-class experts. Develop new professional tools through hands-on workshops and put those skills to the test in dynamic, real-world simulations.


Discover the power of programming that fosters buy-in and collaboration between peers. Workshop new ideas, confront real challenges informed by your business environment, and identify creative solutions that reflect your organization's culture.
