Global Network

The International Leadership Association is the largest global community dedicated to leadership theory and practice. It brings together professionals from every sector, discipline, and profession across the globe to produce rigorous research, cultivate a deeper understanding of the world, and generate new insights into how to exercise effective leadership.

TRUSTED SPACES

ILA brings people together across distance and disciplines – virtually and in person – to bridge theory and practice and spark those aha moments that improve leadership locally and globally. By creating and holding these trusted spaces, ILA ensures that the best thinking about the process of leadership is developed and disseminated.

TRUSTED SOURCES

By holding spaces for research and dialogue, ILA serves as a principal source for leadership-related resources.  Through our global, regional, and topical conferences, webinars, publications, and digital offerings, we generate new research, knowledge, and practices that address issues of interest to our members and the global community at large.

HOW WE DO OUR WORK
