In business, healthcare, education, and communities around the world, leaders and entrepreneurs are seeking strategies and practices that lead to meaningful, systemic change. The ALIA Summer Institute has become a stopping-place for these pioneers—a place to learn and teach, to share lessons and offer tools that empower and accelerate these efforts.

This is not your usual conference and not your usual leadership training. Imagine the best of both—people and ideas at the vanguard of creative solutions plus a chance to learn models and tools that transform complex challenges. Now put yourself in that picture—all of yourself. The Summer Institute is designed to engage you on every level, so that you can more fully align how you think and see, the tools you apply, and how you engage others to achieve your goals.

“A truly unique leadership development experience… Powerful networking opportunities… You won’t find another event like this.”
The Washington Post, on why ALIA is a “must-consider” leadership event


The 2011 Summer Institute took place in Columbus, Ohio.
