At the Center for Leadership at FIU, leadership development is our work and our passion. We partner with great leaders to help them find ways to become even better – every day. For leaders to position themselves to make better decisions more often, to get the best out of themselves and others, and to deliver results, Center programs focus on two epicenters of leadership development: self-insight and developable skills.

The ROI of Leadership Development

In a survey of over 2,500 leaders from companies in 94 countries, developing leadership was rated as the most urgent internal issue facing the organization – by far.

And when it comes to developing leaders, it’s not about just developing senior executive leaders, but developing leadership capacity at ALL levels of the organization. Organizations know they need to be doing this.

"We're trying to help people think about leadership differently, as something we practice, not just who we are. Every leader should continually grow their leadership toolkit."

- Dr. Nathan J. Hiller
Executive Director of The Center
