Leadership Institute

The Division of Workforce Development's Leadership Institute promotes the development and training of existing and emerging leaders in education, public, private and non-profit organizations. Through its tailored programs and services, the Institute is committed to identifying and nurturing the next generation of leaders.

Our Leadership Institute is integrally linked to the Division’s Corporate Solutions. Whereas Corporate Solutions addresses the needs of the organization through the use of a variety of services, the Leadership Institute addresses the needs of developing leaders.
The Leadership Institute’s primary mission is to improve leadership skills, behaviors and competencies that lead to better and more decisive decision making through training. Our leadership training is designed to meet the needs of individuals who are at different stages in their leadership development with a menu of programs that include the following:
