is a start-up non-profit leadership institute that operates as an Academic Center. Our programs, based in Nicaragua, provide training, resources, and mentoring for individuals invested in intentional leadership development and education.
LiDER's current Leadership Trainer Certification Programprepares individuals to serve as leadership facilitators in corporate/organizational settings as well as for workshops, retreats, conferences, and other leadership training environments--including youth work and NGO's.
LiDER will grow to offer additional certification programs - including leadership coaching - as well as master's degrees in leadership and organizational development.
LiDER's master’s programs are designed to be one-year rigorous learning experiences. These programs will intentionally connect theory to practice in order to cultivate scholar-practitioners - individuals who can serve as leadership educators and change-agents in their organizations and communities.
