The philosophy of The Jacobs-Abbey Global Institute for Leadership Studies is based on the belief that there is a new generation of potential leaders reaching adulthood who are internally prepared to depart from the leadership styles and consciousness of past, to forge and implement a new paradigm in the world. The Jacobs-Abbey Global Institute for Leadership Studies is an inclusive organization with inclusive thinking at the core of our being. The philosophy permeates everything we teach and do as well as the way we conduct our business affairs. When our philosophy is very well articulated to our students and faculty, the outcome result will be a society of diversity based on mutual trust and respect, in which communications, information, ideas and dreams freely flow and become reality. There is no reason we cannot create the reality we all want and deserve. There are no barriers we cannot overcome. There are only speed bumps to those infused with the passion that only conviction in and alignment to commonly shared purposes can bring. Believe it and you will see it. This is what we teach. This is what we must live, this is our Philosophy!
