How NSLI teaches collaborative leadership skills.


NSLI research has revealed that hands on, real world projects are the most effective way to understand and practice collaborative leadership skills. Being a member of a team, leading a team and doing so in a culture that values collaboration above other attributes provides the optimal training ground for sustainable leadership for the 21st century.


Unique leadership trainings outside the academy bring new insight to leadership in more traditional disciplines. We source trainings with powerful lessons in leadership and human development not currently found in any other leadership education programs.
