Leadership Development Institute at Eckerd College (LDI) & Center for Creative Leadership (CCL)


For Educators

LDI has conducted numerous custom program solutions for educational professionals. Most notably is the custom Leadership Institute.

“It was an intense week of discovery and development that has far surpassed my previous leadership training. In retrospect, the difference seems to be crystal clear. The Leadership Institute training provided performance feedback at a variety of levels.”

Based on the most recent leadership research, the Leadership Institute focuses on a proven, self-awareness-based learning process to enhance leadership capacities. Graduates typically describe it as the most beneficial development experience they’ve ever had.


During the program, participants

  • Receive a thorough appraisal of their leadership styles and behaviors from a wide range of observers–supervisors, direct reports, peers and other professional colleagues in the program
  • Gain an honest and candid appraisal of personal strengths and developmental needs and identify potential career-derailment hazards
  • Improve their ability to give and receive constructive feedback
  • Understand the connection between their individual impact and their work group and organization’s effectiveness
  • Learn how to lead through change

Special Features

The Leadership Institute features in-depth, 360-degree assessment and participant feedback, videotaped sessions that help develop coaching and interpersonal skills, and a half day of leadership and team problem-solving challenges that allows participants to practice new behaviors in a supportive environment.

All feedback is strictly confidential, and each person receives a one-on-one session with a feedback coach to review the results of the week and to begin setting clearly defined goals.
