for the Library and Information Sector


LLEAD8:  April 25 - September 26, 2025
In-person Intensive @ University of Waterloo.
Details will be posted in August 2024.

Curious about LLEAD? It is the only leadership and management development program for employees in all roles within academic, public and enterprise libraries and information services. What began as a small pilot program quickly transitioned into an innovative, in-demand learning experience for people worldwide. This one-of-a-kind six-month learning journey celebrates and optimizes the diversity of people learning and unlearning together. You gain confidence and capabilities in a close-knit cohort, each member bringing their unique culture, race, experiences, perspectives, abilities, and approaches.


You may be eager to gain skills, tools, powerful insights, and conceptual frameworks to successfully navigate the ever-changing library and information sphere. Wonderful! LLEAD incorporates an intensive Virtual Learning Environment and  6-day In-Person Experience. We work hard to ensure LLEAD's curriculum is constantly updated in response to local, global and technology factors. 


Coached by experienced, high-performing learning guides and supported by confidential peer forums, you build the critical thinking, knowledge, and resilience crucial for inclusive, successful libraries and organizations today - and tomorrow.


Get actionable tools, frameworks and thinking to go to next from now.
