Climb the Seven Summits of Leadership International President Bob Corlew’s theme, “New Mountains to Climb,” takes inspiration from the life lessons gained from scaling mountains, both real and metaphorical. As Lions prepare to reach new heights, strong leaders are needed to help clubs stay on course, weather rocky terrain and enjoy the view. “To climb to the top of a mountain, you need the right tools. You also need the right tools to become an effective leader,” says Corlew. LCI offers an array of leadership development resources to help any Lion reach peak performance. Get geared up at the virtual base camp, the Lions Learning Center (LLC) , where online courses help Lions climb what the Leadership Development Division at LCI Headquarters calls the “Seven Summits of Leadership.” For each of the following “summits,” a corresponding LLC online course is listed.
