Leadership Development Center

At the Leadership Development Center, we provide the leadership training 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, our leadership training programs for soon-to-be graduates and managers alike are designed to help you lead in a way that’s all your own.
  • Building your leadership skills, whether you're a current YCP student or an organization in DC, Pennsylvania or Maryland is not only possible, but can be smooth and painless by choosing to grow at our centrally located campus.
Growing Professionally

Growing Professionally

Having a solid grasp on your soft skills is just as important as knowing what your hard skills are. You’ll need both to thrive professionally and we want our students just as confident in their ability to program or write as they are in their ability to motivate others. Our research is easily accessible in an eBook and infographic, which both give our students invaluable insight on the different ways professionalism in the workplace varies in different industries.


  • What We Do

    Everyone is a Leader.

    The Leadership Development Center at YCP is here for you and committed to your professional growth. For many years, it conducted a national study on professionalism, spanning across multiple industries and occupations. Our research informs how we teach professional skills in our courses, from resume skills to workplace etiquette, to soft skills development.

    We’ve condensed our findings into an easily accessible eBook and infographic. Both aim to give our students invaluable insight on everything from the different ways professionalism in the workplace varies among different industries, which skills to put on a resume, and the true traits of professionalism.

  • Our Approach

    We believe that leadership is about relationships—more specifically the ability to authentically connect with others to inspire them towards a common goal.

    We know everyone learns differently, so our leadership training courses use a variety of methods, such as:

    • Interactive presentations – A significant part of our leadership training activities, our in-class instruction complements most majors and disciplines.
    • Individual coaching – We work with people in all kinds of roles, from new graduates to senior leaders.
    • Custom training - Grow your people or organization with our skills-focused workshops.
    • Keynote speakers - Learn from recognized leaders from around the country.
