In-Person Intensive: 


The week I spent at the Intensive was pivotal. It changed my way of thinking, boosted my personal game and elevated me for what the next few months would bring.

.Live Virtual Classes
We meet virtually for 3 hours on Fridays. There is preparation
for each class.
To fully participate in and enjoy the virtual sessions you'll need
reliable connectivity and a monitor or screen > 25" to be able
to see everyone on one screen. 

We recommend you schedule 3 hours each Friday from
April through September 2025. Twelve of those Fridays will be
virtual classes; the other Fridays will be preparation, applying
tools and concepts and for reflection and deeper learning.
It's important you and your manager agree to the LLEAD schedule and priorities.
We know things come up, but your participation positively impacts your learning and your LLEAD colleagues'.  You must attend the Intensive and at least ten virtual classes.
Be sure to review the Program and Curriculum Overview for requirements and details:

“LLEAD was a pivotal turning point in my library career. The Loon Lake Intensive served as a chance to start the process of self awareness critical to my growth as a leader, while having the chance to bond with my fellow LLEAD participants and mentors, all of whom have become a trusted circle of support since well after the program ended.”
