Message from Rob Ziol, Center Manager, Center for Leadership Development

Rob ZiolI view my role as serving those who serve others. The public sector agencies we collaborate with are under a tremendous amount of pressure to balance increased demands with limited resources. Our charge is to equip our clients with tools, techniques and best practices to help them do their jobs in the most efficient way possible.

We offer professional development programming under three main categories: 

  • Leadership Academy
  • Neighborhood Leadership Cleveland
  • Newly Elected Officials Series
  • LeanOhio Boot Camp
  • Public Management Academy
  • Leadership Excellence Institute
Customized Training
  • Meyers Briggs Type Indicator
  • Strategic Planning
  • Team Development

We also develop customized development programs for regional partners including the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority, the City of Cleveland and Cuyahoga County Council.

The Center for Leadership Development welcomes the opportunity to provide training that will help you be a more effective, responsible, and educated leader.
