The Institute of Leadership & Management
The Institute of Leadership & Management, founded in 1947, and celebrating its 75th year in 2022, is the premier professional membership body for leaders and managers. Our stated mission is ‘To inspire great leadership – Everywhere’. The Institute is a registered charity, with members in countries across the world.
Membership of The Institute is open to leaders and managers at all levels worldwide, including those with no practical experience. Three grades of membership entitle the member to use post-nominal letters – Associate Member (AMInstLM), Member (MInstLM) and Fellow (FInstLM). Membership is validated by an official membership certificate. Members are offered access a range of services to help with their Continuous Professional Development (CPD), including access to online learning tools, webinars and events, podcasts, career advice and tools. And a wide range of other learning resources. We also offer a Corporate Membership, giving corporate teams full access to membership benefits, sometimes tailored to meet specific needs of the business.
The Institute carries out extensive research into leadership and management in practice, providing insights for managers and leaders, and publishing findings in research reports and journals. The Institute takes a collaborative approach, working with like-minded individuals and organisations in defining research topics and undertaking research activity.
EDGE Journal is The Institute’s quarterly in-house magazine, exploring the latest leadership and management issues. The magazine is distributed to members as part of our range of benefits and learning resources.
