Leadership Development Center

At the Leadership Development Center, we provide the tools you need to develop a personal brand, fine-tune your public speaking skills and build on professional relationships.
So, what does it mean to be a leader? It means you are driven, you have the courage to speak up, and you are ready to inspire change and influence others to take action. Whether you’re getting ready to enter the workforce or you’re a professional looking for new ways to contribute to your career or the careers of others, we’re here to help.‌

From building your emotional intelligence to presenting your next big idea, the LDC offers one-on-one coaching and in-class presentations to help you prepare for the next chapter.
Stay connected to the school and past classmates while fine-tuning leadership skills to propel you forward in your career and make education and self-improvement a lifelong pursuit.
The resources York College offers can motivate your employees to identify and implement skills that expand on the human capital of your business.
