Leadership Development

Learn. Lead. Grow.

Learning is part of the human experience. It empowers us to improve our thinking, our feeling, our communication, and our service. When Lions and Leos put learning into action, leadership happens.

The Leadership Development Team works year-round with Lions and Leos who want to continue growing for the sake of their clubs, their communities, and Lions Clubs International. If that describes you—no matter where you are in your leadership journey—training and development opportunities are available to keep you moving forward.

Online learning

The Lions Learning Center (LLC) offers all Lions and Leos the opportunity to learn and sharpen their knowledge of Lions fundamentals and leadership skills through online interactive courses. Access the LLC from the “Learn” application using your Lion account login and password.
