Interface - The Newsletter of the International Leadership Association

Interface. The name evokes those spaces and boundaries where our work touches each other’s. Where theory and practice meet, shake hands, and learn from one another. It honors the fact that the ILA’s membership includes people located in many, and often multiple, independent systems — scholars and researchers, educators and students, coaches and consultants, NGO and public leaders, administrators and executives — who all Interface in the ILA around their commitment to fostering better leadership worldwide. Distributed every second and fourth Thursday, Interface shares articles highlighting association news and work being done by other ILA members. Regular columns include, among others, our behind-the-pages leadership Author Interviews, PAUSE for Pedagogy, Method Moments, Member Spotlights, and Field Reports. If you have an idea for an article in Interface, please email ILA Communications Director Debra DeRuyver at
