The Leadership Institute

The Leadership Institute program specifically addresses LAN’s commitment to its staff worldwide. The competitive program aims, through a series of learning modules, to prepare talented employees for leadership roles, and to define and develop their corresponding skills and responsibilities.
Following completion of the Leadership Institute, each graduating class member is challenged to move forward under an active leadership mentoring program in their respective office, incorporating the framework of their Leadership Effectiveness Action Plan (LEAP) which they are required to develop for post-Leadership-Institute growth.

The Futures Council

Each graduating Leadership Institute class member is encouraged to join The Futures Council, an active and highly engaged team of past Leadership Institute graduates company-wide who are passionate about continuing to exercise their leadership skills while influencing LAN to be the very best we can be.

The Executive Development Program

The Executive Development Program (EDP) is a highly-customized “executive” version of the Leadership Institute. Functioning in parallel with each year’s Leadership Institute, the EDP is structured to further capitalize and expand on the leadership effectiveness of our most senior and client-facing company leaders. The Executive Development program – like its Leadership Institute companion – demonstrates LAN’s commitment to enhancing leadership effectiveness at every level of the company and growing our future leaders.
