Why do we believe effective leadership is so critical?
We believe that effective and enthusiastic leaders, more than anything else, are the difference between success and failure within the organizations and communities they represent. Our leadership academy and all of our programming is built upon this single idea. In short, to make a difference, you first have to be the difference.
Our mission is to ensure that individuals who have the desire to demonstrate leadership have access to world class leadership training close to home.
Through personal leadership development, our vision is to see vibrant communities and workplaces developed within East Central Indiana supported by skilled, collaborative and engaged leaders.
The values of our organization are the operating philosophies or principles that guide our organization’s internal conduct as well as our relationships with both internal and external stakeholders. Often referred to as the means through which we will fulfill our mission or the principles that will guide our decision making process, our values must be embodied by every person associated with the organization to fully realize their impact. They include:
- The development of leaders

- An interactive learning environment
- Collaboration with others
- Continuous quality improvement
