Unlike other community leadership programs in Indiana, the Tobias Fellows program is dedicated to developing leadership in high-potential, experienced leaders. The program focuses on you and your performance, helping you gain new skills and leadership competencies you can use to make your organization stronger and more successful.
Expect the unexpected
Get ready to explore all facets of leadership
In the Tobias Fellows program, you’ll:
- Confront leadership dilemmas in a range of environments that are very different from your own
- Be motivated to look deep within yourself on issues critical to good leadership
- Interact with leaders and leadership scholars both during and after the program
- Take part in shared experiences that will strengthen your understanding of leadership in context
Build your network
You’ll have time to get to know the other fellows well when you share stories and journals of your leadership experiences. You’ll meet and interact with outstanding leaders and experts in the field of leadership. You’ll be invited to Tobias Leadership Center events and lectures. And you’ll work with our faculty fellows—a core group of IU faculty who do research, teach classes, and conduct workshops related to leadership. After successful completion of the Tobias Fellows program, you’re automatically a member of the Tobias Leadership Network.
