The Chicago Leadership Series and the Leadership Breakfast Programs are two new leadership development programs that will be offered by the Organizational Leadership Institute. Sessions in both programs will be led by full-time faculty at the College of Business at Illinois State University.
Each program will offer sessions that address and critical leadership-related topics and will be led by faculty who have significant professional and academic expertise in these areas. In fact, many of the faculty who will lead these sessions are nationally and internationally known for their contributions to the study of leadership and organizations.
The goal of each program is really two-fold. First, we want to create stronger connections and ties with our alumni and with local business communities, and create opportunities for individuals to examine and explore important issues related to leadership in organizations. Second, we also want to provide increased opportunities for our faculty to interact with business and community leaders in each area.
Our faculty truly relish the opportunity to interact with business, community, and other organizational leaders. Such opportunities not only provide a setting in which faculty can share their insights and perspectives, but also provide a setting in which faculty can learn from the insights and perspectives of participants in the program.
