The purpose of the Institute for Leadership Excellence is to promote and recognize demonstrated excellence in management and leadership in corporations, government and other institutions.
The Institute develops courses that provide global access to knowledge and a learning process intended to not only develop knowledge, but to develop the habits of value-based leadership, and the real world demonstration of leadership skills.
Institute Values and Mission
They believe leadership must fulfill the following values:
Unity and Diversity
That which divides leads to disintegration and failure. That which unites people in common purpose and effort creates energy and integration. Diversity of thought, culture and experience enrich every decision making process. Creating unity out of diversity is the challenge of leadership in our age. Whether in corporations or government, we live in an age in which unity of people has resulted in sustained peace and growing prosperity across the globe.
Inclusion and Engagement
Leaders in the 21st Century must develop both the habits and the organizational systems that create genuine engagement in decision-making at all levels of the organization. Human development, as well as organization development is a consequence of ownership and empowerment.
The Scientific Method
We live in a world in which politicians, the media, and even corporate executives, too often are more concerned with communicating an image rather than communicating facts. Good leaders are dedicated to truth, to the facts as demonstrated by real world data. They promote an understanding of fact-based leadership and change.
Every organization must be dedicated to continuous improvement and every individual must be dedicated to life-long learning. The Institutes purpose is to provide easy access to high quality learning and assistance to both individuals and organizations.
The Democracy of Knowledge
In ages past, knowledge was the property of the few. The Institute believes in, and will promote, the democratic access to knowledge that will empower all of humanity to achieve their full potential and to a seat at the table of influence.
