Developing Leaders at All levels
Built with research on the leadership gap from McKinsey & Company’s Chicago Community Consulting Team, as well as financial support from the National Football League, TLI’s programming will help leaders at all levels make an impact at their organizations, in their communities, and in the world at large. With content and curriculum led by TLI Director Colleen Reaney and facilitated by Tillman Scholars. The institute will offer programs to three audiences: high potential early to mid-career professionals, executive leadership, and student athletes, as well as customized leadership and management training.

A tenacious leader inspires others to persevere through hardships and challenges.

Passionate leaders lead with their heart and their soul.
