Create Change with Us
The Institute for Leadership Excellence and Development at UIC is dedicated to discovering practical methods to make workplaces better. Through rigorous, applied research, iLEAD works with employees and employers in Chicago and beyond to conduct action-oriented, custom-designed research on topics such as employee engagement, workforce attachment, leadership, and work and family balance.
Since 1991, corporate leaders have turned to the Institute for Leadership Excellence and Development for the support and expertise they need to objectively and effectively research those challenges and bring about workplace change.
That's what makes iLEAD different. We're organized to effect concrete change, not just talk about it.
It's not news that when employees feel valued and integral to their companies' performance, they are more productive and passionate about their work. Unfortunately, most executives have limited time and resources to undertake comprehensive studies that analyze the roots of workplace success.
iLEAD completes world-class research that employers can use today.
