This is a momentous occasion. In late August, The Leadership Institute for Development, Education, and Research (LiDER) held its first Board meeting. Less than 10 months later - after strategizing, raising funds, and crafting an incredible curriculum - we launch our inaugural leadership development experience: The Leadership Trainer Certificate Program (LTCP).
The LTCP is a seven-week program is designed to train university students and young professionals on how to facilitate intentional leadership development experiences. We will focus on three areas for effective leadership training - leadership theory, leadership practices, and facilitation skills.
We look forward to posting pictures, videos, and stories of our leadership-learning journey here. Stay tuned!
LiDER is a start-up non-profit leadership institute that provides training, resources, and mentorship to students, women, and entrepreneurs.
