Why Leadership Development? 

Read the article below co-authored by ICLD founder, Dr. Mitch Javidi.

Tips from ICLD Graduates:

  • “It’s not a race to see who finishes.  Don’t rush through it, ICLD is a journey.”
  • “Early on, I realized I needed a notebook to take notes for the quizzes!”


What They Are Saying

My goal in everything I do is to always make sure I’m the best in whatever position I hold, but also to set me up for that next jump up. My goal during my career is to move up the chain of command and go as high as I can achieve. The ICLD classes I believe will help facilitate that change by having the basic knowledge of how to become the best leader possible. I say basic knowledge because although I have completed X amount of hours of this training, leadership is always evolving, it’s always needed, and you have to continue to learn every day.

“I found the ‘Managing Change’ courses very informative. Since no one is immune to change and most people struggle with it, I found the content, tips, and direction to be very helpful. It was also realistic advice that can be implemented anywhere.

“Overall, I took a lot away from this course. There were many evenings when I was with my wife and shared something interesting from one of the lessons, and sparked long discussions both work and family oriented. I appreciated how the course went deep into the mindset of leadership and the values that make up a good leader. I know that some of the material helped me be a better husband and father at home, and I know that translates back to the office. Work life is far more productive when all is well at home!”
