About Us

The Leadership Development Institute at Eckerd College was founded in 1980 to help individuals, teams and organizations achieve their potential. LDI has been a Network Associate of the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL) since 1981 and has delivered internationally acclaimed programs to thousands of local, national and international clients.

The Right Climate for Learning

LDI provides world-class programs in a world class setting. The climate we've created for learning--one that is stimulating and challenging, yet relaxed and open-minded--is enhanced by our sunny Florida location. We are committed to creating an environment that fosters excellence. Sandy beaches and balmy weather are simply additional benefits.

Developing Leadership at Every Level

LDI delivers public and custom programs for leaders at all levels. We design programs for specific organizational needs, from a comprehensive leadership institute for executive teams to helping managers master the challenges of workplace conflict. LDI also provides coaching and diagnostic services that identify company roadblocks and assist in attaining organizational goals. LDI serves as a comprehensive leadership development organization for clients in 35 states and several foreign countries.

Self-Awareness:  The Foundation of Managerial Effectiveness

In this fast-paced world, individuals rarely have the opportunity to receive extensive feedback in the workplace - to understand how others perceive them.  LDI provides leaders with the time, tools and environment needed to gain a comprehensive, accurate view of themselves.  In fact, our emphasis on assessment and honest, productive feedback is frequently cited as the most valuable part of the LDI experience.
