in evidence-based theory, sound program design and effective evaluation strategies. ISL can provide qualitative and quantitative
data collection and analyses as well as community-based participatory research, literature reviews and subject matter expertise.
Workplace Health Promotion Programming & Evaluation

being detected among younger populations, workplace health promotion programming has received national prominence. Also,

In developing and maintaining viable businesses, ethical policies have grabbed center-stage on both domestic and global fronts.
ISL utilizes its vast experience in developing and nurturing business in public, private, governmental and academic sectors to
provide clear training and insight on value-adding principles on how to run business ethically and efficiently.
Journalism holds requirements to provide justice, truth, accuracy, and bias-free examination and dissemination of information to
diverse populations unmatched in other professional arenas. As such, ISL is equipped to provide credentialed responses to
varied audiences about the necessity for truth in reporting, data analyses, and utilizing media outlets for appropriate opportunities
to inform the general public or special interests. As social media in its various forms continue to dominate contemporary
cultures, journalism takes an even greater prominence in balancing rigorous ethical principles with freedoms of speech.
Public Health Ethics
The study and examination of disease conditions in human populations bring specific social, cultural, environmental and
contextual issues influencing disease risk for which statistics and theories are inadequate. To that end, ISL is committed to
providing expert advocacy, training and capacity building to improve treatment of public health research subjects, health
intervention development and implementation and outcome analyses.
Professional On-Boarding, Mentorship, Management & Development
Contrary to old adages, an organization's prime consumer is its employees, not its customers. Sir Richard Branson of Virgin
Group said it best, "“Clients do not come first. Employees come first. If you take care of your employees, they will take care of
the clients”. ISL infuses the best of its demonstrated expertise to develop professional development programming with strong
infrastructures, assessments and skills-building activities to enhance your organization's in-house expertise, structuring and
responsiveness to changing market indicators. By tailoring activities and resources for both veteran and emerging staff to
enhance leadership, professional exchange, life-work balance, stress and time-management, decision-making and role
competencies, ISL is equipped to establish new, and manage existing, professional development programs. In addition, ISL can
utilize these skills to introduce innovative approaches to work performance and service delivery. This comprehensive approach
has shown tangible benefits in organizational stability, reduced absenteeism and presenteeism, and propelled professionals
forward as they transition to new roles.
The Institute for Successful Leadership recognizes that every business, regardless of the industry, plays both the salesperson
and marketer of its services and products. Under ISL's direction, both for-profit and non-profit organizations have benefited from
numerous creative ideas for fundraising, market placement and diversifying market shares.
Instruction & Curriculum Design
A key component in successful professional progress is development of learning opportunities to ensure consistency of service
delivery, shared knowledge, and common skill sets. As in academic settings, professional learning is engaged by focused,
organized approaches. By designing effective instructional content, implementation models, and assessment methods, ISL
offers unparalleled opportunities to illustrate educational value and document expected outcomes. Whether staff, Board of
Directors, donor or academic instruction, ISL designs singular training syllabi and curricula (coordinated systems of knowledge-
and skills-building experiences) and other infrastructures to establish organizational and institutional credibility and guide
participant knowledge, skills, and competencies.
