ADELPHI, MD (Oct. 20, 2009)—The National Leadership Institute (NLI) at University of Maryland University College (UMUC) this month celebrates its 30th year as a network associate of the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL), the preeminent organization devoted to leadership research and education. CCL ranked No. 6 overall in the 2009 Financial Times worldwide survey of executive education.

Under license with CCL, NLI offers the Leadership Development Program (LDP)® and Foundations of Leadership (FOL). The LDP helps senior staff acquire the tools necessary to enhance their leadership development skills by increasing self-awareness, as well as exercises to build their expertise to successfully lead others. FOL, designed for less-experienced managers, focuses on basic skills for effective leadership that will facilitate growth and development of both confidence and abilities in future leadership roles.

“The National Leadership Institute is pleased and proud to mark this 30-year anniversary as a network associate of the nationally renowned Center for Creative Leadership,” said Carol Dell’Amore, PhD, director of NLI at UMUC. “Together, NLI and CCL have shaped some of today’s top leadership talent, and we look forward to another equally successful 30 years.”

“At CCL, we constantly remind our clients about the power of collaboration and teamwork—and our relationship with NLI at UMUC proves why it matters so much,” said Portia R. Mount, vice president of Global Marketing at CCL. “By combining our knowledge and talent for the last 30 years, we’ve helped prepare executives from all over the world to tackle today's leadership challenges.”
