The goal of the International Leadership Development Institute is to provide current managers or new directors of international divisions within colleges and institutes across Canada with valuable information and strategies that will help them to be more effective leaders in their roles. The institute will also provide leaders who are either new or interested in learning more about leading their organization in international initiatives with a significant amount of information about the international leadership role.
The facilitators are leaders (directors, vice-presidents or presidents) with significant experience within the college community in Canada, who have worked to transform or lead their College with major international divisions.

Mentorship / Working Project
The institute will offer a mentorship opportunity through the development of a variety of projects that would be led by the facilitators and with those participants interested in common areas. These projects will be started at the institute, but they will also be worked on throughout the year, in order to be presented at the CICan annual conference.
The International Leadership Development Institute will provide participants with a time to identify who they are as leaders and what they hope to get out of the institute. The facilitators will also help participants identify what strengths they bring to the institute. Such an approach will facilitate matches based on common areas of interest for development.
The presenters have been selected for their knowledge and facilitation skills. They will also be matched with several participants in a project / mentorship role to be developed over the course of the year.
Note: The operational language will be English. Participants will also be signed up for a group electronic list in late May and will receive further information on the agenda, getting to know one another, arranging rides, etc.
Early registration is encouraged for a maximum of 25 participants. Participation is restricted to individuals from CICan member institutions and to a maximum of two (2) participants per college. Should space permit, an additional participant may be considered.
