About The Niagara Institute
Where Leaders Come to Grow
Established in 1971, The Niagara Institute is a private, not-for-profit organization whose purpose is to enhance the quality of leadership in private and public sector organizations. Niagara’s programs are highly concentrated, engaging and student-focused, attracting leaders from across Canada and around the world. Niagara is part of The Conference Board of Canada (Canada), the country’s leading independent, not-for-profit research institution. Niagara offers programs under exclusive licenses with the world-renowned organization Center for Creative Leadership (CCL®) and with the leadership communication expert, The Humphrey Group Inc.
Effective leaders are people who understand themselves and their relationships with others. For more than a quarter century, The Niagara Institute has helped leaders learn how to change their own lives and go on to change the lives of their organizations and their communities. We believe that leadership is found in all organizations, in different situations, and at all organizational levels. At the individual level, leadership makes people more competent and effective; at the organizational level, leadership enables organizations to become more vigorous and competitive.
Invest in Leadership
Here, at Niagara, we know that it pays to invest in leadership, in all its forms. The Institute’s current offerings reflect our commitment to improving not only management abilities but also leadership capabilities that bring direction and momentum to individuals, groups, and organizations. We believe that there is not a single “best” leadership style that fits every leader or organization, so in addition to open-enrolment programs, Niagara also delivers customized leadership development, tailored to the specific needs of an organization, as well as Certified Executive Coaching services.
Niagara programs are relevant, highly experiential and practical, and based on comprehensive research. They are designed to help leaders identify, understand, and address the issues of our time. Our facilitators are engaging professional adult educators and our program learning model is highly effective. Together, these elements form a winning combination.
When you think of leadership, think of The Niagara Institute. We are the place where leaders come to grow.
