The NLA Mission

What lies at the heart of the NLA’s mission is focussing on leadership as a key skill that can be improved by all individuals and organisations.

Increasingly ‘good leadership’ is cited as imperative to success but this is often confused with ‘good management’.

Many experts also now agree that the concept of great leaders being ‘born’ and not ‘made’ is now discredited – and that a collaborative approach to leadership throughout the entire organisation delivers the most benefits to all parties. This model of ‘distributed leadership’ is the core philosophy of the NLA.


The NLA is supported by the three northern regional development agencies: Northwest Development Agency, One NorthEast and Yorkshire Forward as part of The Northern Way.
