Leadership: Person or Purpose?

Forget about romanticized and heroic leaders. Today’s leadership is all about purpose-led companies that are organized or branded around an idea. Learn more about the forces behind the recent rise of purpose-led companies, the intersections with leadership, and the upcoming Power of Purpose event hosted by the ILA and the Møller Institute, Churchill College, University of Cambridge

Living Out Our Mission

The ILA Board recently held its annual planning retreat at the site of our upcoming 20th Anniversary global conference in West Palm Beach, Florida. The work of this year’s retreat was to discuss the association’s three-year positional plan for 2018 through 2020, which we will be sharing in draft form with members later this year. The retreat also allowed the ILA Board and staff the opportunity to reflect on the association's achievements in 2017.
