Founded in 2005, the Leadership Institute at Columbus State University is a university-based consulting group. We have worked with more than 200 organizations and helped develop thousands of leaders. We work with leadership at all levels, from front-line supervisors to senior management executives, to develop and enhance their skills by engaging them in challenging, interactive sessions.

The way we learn, lead, and work has transformed quickly and was accelerated by COVID-19. Leaders, companies and team members around the world have experienced a massive shift towards virtual leadership. At the Leadership Institute, we have converted our services online and are ready to help make your team’s learning experience personalized and curated to your needs.

We are recognized by SHRM to offer SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP professional development credits (PDCs) for approved sessions. In addition, many sessions earn Continuing Education Units (CEUs), a nationally recognized method for measuring non-credit course work.
