Illinois ASBO Leadership Institute

The Illinois ASBO Leadership Institute originated from the leadership passion of Michael Jacoby, Ed.D., SFO, CAE, Illinois ASBO Executive Director/CEO. The mission behind the program is leadership through the development of others. With the ever increasing demands of the workplace, developing yourself as a leader will empower you to move your organization forward more successfully. This includes learning to develop others and alleviate stress through better relationship management.

School and Service Associate members can begin a lifelong and potentially career changing journey through 360-degree feedback, goal setting and self-reflection, coaching and experiential activities and emotional intelligence and situational leadership.

The Single Best Investment of My Time

The Leadership Institute was no question the single best investment of my time and professional development dollars. What made it different for me was the insight I received on myself and my leadership tendencies. 

If you are seriously interested in working on yourself and your leadership, this seminar is everything you could hope for. You won’t be disappointed.”
