Mission Statement

Program Concept

The Micali Leadership Institute (MLI) was designed by CNM to be an intensive leadership development program. MLI focuses on leadership challenges in changing times. The one-day leadership program is designed to help participants develop the ability to be proactive rather than reactive and shape the future rather than merely to manage the present. Participants from all areas of CNM are invited to participate in the program.


At the completion of the program, participants will be committed to continual discovery and renewal of personal and professional leadership.
