Effective leadership is needed more than ever for organizations to succeed. The leadership development process to nurture leaders has suffered from a lack of effectiveness in training.

True leadership development entails the process of improving one’s leadership skills, knowledge, and attitudes in the context of the leadership role one has inside their organization. It is through this specific application of role to leadership that knowledge and attitudes are fully developed to ensure sustainable application and success.

Sessions will be held monthly from 9 am-12 pm and are facilitated by experts in leadership Tish Thompson and Rick Lochner.

The complete Leadership Institute program will be broken into three key areas/semesters from 2022 through 2023; self-leadership, leader relationships, and organizational leadership.  Each semester will have one topic on the first Tuesday of the month and will be held at College of DuPage’s Naperville Center (unless health safety moves courses to virtual). 

  • Self-Leadership  |  Spring 2022
  • Leader Relationships  |  Fall 2022
  • Organizational Leadership  |  Spring 2023 

To bring all the topics together, each participant will create a goal they want to complete or be well on their way to completing by the time they graduate from the program. While all twelve sessions are encouraged, the curriculum is designed for participants to apply a-la-carte to any combination of sessions they feel are most beneficial to them as leaders.

The Spring Semester can be completed as a full package or a la carte. The dates for the session(s) are below.  

* Finish all four topics and receive a Certificate for Self-Leadership *
