About The Cramer Institute

Just Think. Throughout history, leaders have summoned the vision and the courage to change the world for the better. We envision a society in which people from all walks of life can do just that. That’s why we exist: to provoke leaders to realize their potential. In turn, they transform their organizations, their communities, even our culture. Sound too lofty or “pie-in-the-sky?” Game-changing often does. Whether we work with Fortune 500 CEOs or up-and-coming middle managers, we see in them the spark that can lead to greatness. And we love helping them get there.
