What you’ll experience in Leadership University is an emergent, multilevel, integrated Leadership Development System that anyone can use to become a better leader. In fact, you’ll work with one of our visionaries to literally customize a program that suits your leadership needs.

Leadership University is a virtual school of global lifelong learning–a community where learners teach and teachers learn–together.

This emergent multilogue provides you with an integral opportunity to become a part of as well as lead in a diverse global setting created over the past 6 years of experience utilizing our success in virtual training and community building.

In an article entitled, “How to Lead Now,” in the August 2003 issue of Fast Company, a study points to the measurable difference in productivity that occurs when investments in the development of people are made:

”In a study of 3000 companies, researchers at the University of Pennsylvania found that spending 10% of revenue on capital improvements boosts productivity by 3.9%, but a similar investment in developing human capital increases productivity by 8.5%–more than twice as much.”

This is not a traditional educational system where you come to learn from an anointed group of so-called experts.

What you’ll find here are people of every calling from all over the planet who are joining together to create their own Leadership Development System in a individual and collective leadership journey. Each person is called to growth, development and performance for a different reason. Each shares the knowledge and experience gained through a lifetime–whether short or long–of accumulated wisdom in a cauldron of emergence.

"The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago.

The second best time is now."

Chinese Proverb

Each and every member of Leadership University is encouraged to bring forth their own wisdom to create and teach classes or programs that enhance their own leadership agenda. It is truly a leadership multilogue where learners teach and teachers learn about them selves, one another and the diversity of life on the planet that binds us all together.

Whether you have something to teach or something to learn, we welcome you to our leadership experience.

"Poor countries thus don’t have to wait until they build bigger and better school systems and educate a whole generation of workers. Nor do they need to wait for more development aid from rich countries. If local businesses followed the proven approaches for organizing production and managing a workforce, poor countries could grow much faster than most people realize. Domestic savers and foreign investors hungry for good returns would also supply these countries with plenty of capital for new investments." Source


Here is how it works:

After you purchase the Leadership Development System, you’ll work your way through a short orientation and a leadership primer with a group of people who have also purchased the system.  You’ll learn how the system works and where to find the classes, materials and support you need for your leadership journey.

Once you’ve completed the primer you’ll have the opportunity to choose affiliation with one of our schools, up to 36 in all will be formed around crucial leadership topics over the course of time.

You’re membership give you the rights to distribute 1/4 of your tuition to the school of your choice.

At the present time, the following list of schools is available for specialization including a non-specialized school of Leadership Studies led by the University’s founder Mike Jay.


“An education is like a crumbling building that needs constant upkeep with repairs and additions.”

–Louis Dudek

Here is the current list of schools to consider:

Some Small Print: Please note this list is but an example. Our list of actual schools is growing and changing as new visionaries or what are called traditionally "deans" will be added until we reach our target of 36 active schools. Schools that do not reach sufficient enrollment will be folded into other schools that emerge.  Each school may have up to 6 areas of specialization. LeadU reserves and retains the right to modify, change, adapt or limit school formation and enrollment.

  • Integral Leadership Development
  • Resilience
  • Developmental Coaching
  • HealthCare Leadership
  • Business Development
  • Mindful Leadership
  • Renewable Energy Action Leadership
  • Indian School of Leadership Development

Whether you are leading a girl scout troop, a global 2000 company, a soccer team, a small business or yourself….

Leadership University is for you and the planet.

Why do we need a real life place of learning rather than traditional university systems?


FROM: Bill Gates

Love him or hate him, he sure hits the nail on the head with this! To anyone with kids of any age, here’s some advice. Bill Gates recently gave a speech at a High School about 11 things they did not and will not learn in school. He talks about how feel-good, politically correct teachings created a generation of kids with no concept of reality and how this concept set them up for failure in the real world.

Rule 1: Life is not fair – get used to it!

Rule 2: The world won’t care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.

Rule 3: You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You won’t be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.

Rule 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.

Rule 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your Grandparents had a different word for burger flipping – they called it opportunity.

Rule 6: If you mess up, it’s not your parents’ fault, so don’t whine about your mistakes, learn from them.

Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents weren’t as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you were. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent’s generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.

Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life HAS NOT. In some schools they have abolished failing grades and they’ll give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer. This doesn’t bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.

Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don’t get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. Do that on your own time.

Rule 10: Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.

Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you’ll end up working for one.

Come join the neighborhood…be the difference you seek in a unique blend of living, loving, learning and leadership with a return to YOUR bottom line!


"Goodness is the only investment that never fails."

Henry David Thoreau

While every network in LeadU is connected to the Leadership Development System you purchase, we encourage you to connect with others to share with them our planetary leadership vision of awareness, purpose, competence and well-being in concert with each person’s purpose in living.  The unalienable right to pursue happiness and to be compassionate with another’s right to do the same is an essential principle at LeadU.

Leadership University is about the fundamental integration of existence and being–emerging together to produce leaders who have the ability to solve complex problems, deal with impossible scenarios and to live lives of sustenance and passion.

Leadership University provides each member with the opportunity to earn a leadership referral. It is designed to promote well-being and the exchange of all forms of energy in order to make the LeadU experience available to lesser developed countries.  This design is natural and seeks to support pragmatically the emergence of your own leadership journey through the sharing of your personal experience in LeadU with others around the world.

At Leadership University, we refuse to lose focus on the right for people to have lives and what that opportunity brings in the way of responsibility to our system.  Therefore, we have integrated existence and being with our neighborhood sharing opportunity in a natural design of life, love, learning and leadership.

While no promises are made, LeadU has created the environment for you to flourish as a personal, professional, business or network leader.

It’s an exciting design where no one is left out, everyone is encouraged to grow and develop through the purchase of your own uniquely customizable Leadership Development System.

Leaders Emerge!

There is nothing worse in our view than a great leader without the means to lead.  We have removed those barriers in Leadership University and each purchaser of the Leadership Development System is provided with the opportunity to quickly gain returns to their own investment in leadership beginning in late 2004.

“Part of your heritage in this society is the opportunity to become financially independent."

Jim Rohn

Won’t you consider the purchase of this system and take part in our integrated approach to life, liberty, leadership and the pursuit of happiness?

Learning new things may be a boon to your RealAge.

"Studies show that people who attain higher educational levels tend to live longer compared to people who don’t. Also, people who attempt to learn new things and enjoy intellectual pursuits as they age tend to stay sharper mentally. Enroll in an evening class, take up painting, or engage your friends and your family in a get-together each month during which you all learn a new game."

The Leadership Development System consists of a user-customizable program of user-selected learning opportunities integrated into a specific path of leadership designed to promote the growth of leadership performance and development during your course of study.

Read the fine print before you purchase:

This system includes any class, program and digital materials that are available in the undergraduate catalogue at anytime now or in the future. It doesn’t include third-party materials that may be required or desired by any person or program as an adjunct or addition to the digital materials that may be offered to leaders, such as assessments, retreat fees, coaching, special interviews, third-party books or materials, travel fees, expenses incurred while traveling, retreating or studying with program or class leaders. There will be programs that are not mandatory for graduation that will be offered that are opportunities to study with masters in the field or leaders who offer specialized opportunities available, but are not included in the product.

If you have a founding level member sponsoring you please request the registration page from them directly.

Thank you for being the change you seek! I look forward to meeting you during your journey.

Mike R. Jay, Founder
