Step in and Step up

The Institute for Leadership Ethics, Achievement and Development (iLEAD) believes that everyone has the potential to answer the call to greatness. It directs you to “step in and step up.” You will know the call when it is directed toward the development of yourself in the service of others. The call to be a leader involves something so much larger than yourself. It’s about dynamic change within individuals and our world that brings satisfaction to both the leaders and the recipients of your service.
