World-class leadership in every community.

Who we are & What we do

Kentucky Center for Leadership is a non-profit organization committed to empowering communities for healthy change.

Kentucky has a very diverse population, both ethnically and socially, with unique qualities and needs. There are various programs offering information on resources and opportunities to network. However, there is a void on true leadership education for organizations, enhancement of practical skills for individuals, and opportunities to engage communities to take action on issues. In 2020 professionals from Leadership Strategies Group (LSG) and the Center for Leadership Excellence (CLE) decided to utilize their experience and expertise to fill that gap. A non-profit organization was created under the name of Kentucky Center for Leadership. We have the vision to be the hub for leadership development in Kentucky.

 Everyone, every community, and every organization deserve access to real-life leadership programs. KC4L is leading workshops and programs focused on civic and business leadership, as well as on organizational leadership development. We also organize unique and exclusive events bringing leaders and business people together.
