Our Mission: Building Better Leaders

Without effective leadership, an organization will never embrace disruptive, out-of-the-box thinking necessary for innovation. The stakes are too high for leaders to “figure it out” by trial and error—especially in a world where mission command is so critical. To this end, the DLC offers transformative leader development programs for leaders at all levels to hone their skills with practical tools, coaching, and professional development opportunities.
