Center for Leadership Development

Practical, Comprehensive and Personalized Leadership Development


In today's organizations, success depends on maximizing the contributions of each individual. A solid relationship exists between a company's performance and its workplace learning and development practices that enhance that individual performance.

Duquesne University's School of Leadership and Professional Advancement has more than 25 years of experience in working to strengthen the capacities of both the individual and organization. Our greatest strength is in understanding the needs of the adult learner and being able to respond to those needs by offering high quality, relevant and interactive learning in flexible and easily accessible formats.

Our Center for Leadership Development, part of the School of Leadership and Professional Advancement, works with clients in the corporate, nonprofit and public sectors. We provide customized consulting and professional development through innovative and accessible delivery systems, with a fundamental commitment to client success. Through a careful needs assessment and program design, we partner with our clients to create solutions that address the rapidly changing work environment and the need for effective leadership at all levels.

We were pleased to partner with Duquesne University's School of Leadership and Professional Advancement to present ‘Leading with Excellence and Your Best Style' to our internal mentorship Program participants. Not only did we discuss the ‘big picture' of leadership, but we also focused on detailed steps and tools. By working with Duquesne, we delivered a key development opportunity to our future leaders. We can't wait to see the results!"

"Having instructors from the School of Leadership and Professional Advancement at Duquesne University as the facilitators for the MPI Pittsburgh Board Retreat was the first step to a successful year. In meeting face to face and designing personalized Program that spoke to creating who we are as leaders, Erroline and Deborah were wonderfully effective. Their Program spoke to today, while exploring tomorrow for us, both personally and professionally".
