Since 2002, ILM has been focusing on leadership development and capacity building. From early on in life, Dr. Charles Karuku, founder of ILM, realized that you cannot change behavior and influence the outside world until you change the internal thoughts and motivations which affect external circumstances. This is developing internal capacity; changing our way of thinking, breaking old paradigms, and nurturing intrinsic gifts of transformational leaders. This transformation can be done through leadership training both at a personal and institutional level. ILM understands that the rising and falling of institutions depends on the growth of this internal capacity of the leader. Leadership is not a mystery. It is a concept that can be learned and nurtured.
