You may also look at your Leadership Style through the eyes of John Maxwell as how ...
In times of peril, it is easy to forget to have a spirit of gratitude. Indeed, it may even seem inappropriate to be grateful when there are so many struggles invading the peace that should be all pervasive in our world. As I was listening to my favorite piece of music, “Ode to Joy,” I was struck by its lasting beauty and power… and I was overcome with gratitude. Adding the ...

Our Mission

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. This goal has built the foundation for our Leadership Center offerings that range from the Institute, in-person trainings, academies, online learning and our new Leadership Conference.

Our facilitator team comes from diverse backgrounds with years of experience and training in these tried and true leadership methods. This team is here to help you grow as an individual, but ultimately change the lives of those you work with by building better and more efficient teams.

The Illinois ASBO Leadership Center is built on one simple foundation –
LEADERS ARE MADE.

While some people may have more charisma, referent or positional power, it does not mean they are a good leader. The greatest leaders are those who have taken the time to learn how to lead well. Reading, experimenting, engaging with others, assessing behaviors and impact, charting a course for improvement and creating meaningful accountability circles are the values and behaviors of successful leaders. Here at Illinois ASBO our goal is to create opportunities for our members, both school district and Service Associate, to learn and improve on all of these behaviors of great leadership. If it is as John Maxwell says, “Leadership is influence,” then together let’s make a positive influence on your world!
