One of LLEAD's requirements is that members complete a project for their organization (either the parent organization or their department) or for the library and information sector.
The project should:
allow members to pull together all elements of LLEAD
demonstrate their learnings of the five managerial mindsets, and be an opportunity to purposefully use the five minds -- individually and holistically
address an organizational need or an issue related to the library and information sector that is meaningful for the member and important to their manager
Members must have a senior sponsor for their project; if the project is not for their organization but rather is for the sector, members must have a sponsor from a library and information sector association or academic program.
Members and their sponsor ensure that the project:
involves a range of stakeholders and/or partners in a variety of departments or functions
results in practical deliverables to real situations
will be implemented; while the deliverables may not be implemented by November 2021, there should be intent and planning for implementation.

Having cohort members from a variety of library systems and library types really added to the experience. I enjoyed learning more about the academic libraries and their roles and organizations - during wise counsel sessions it almost always offered a completely different perspective on the issue. I was also able to better understand how/why senior administration made certain decisions that perhaps I didn't understand at the time.
