Leadership Development

 While the IHG Owners Association is committed to supporting our members in operating  profitable IHG hotels, we also believe it’s important to offer opportunities to expand our members’ ability to successfully lead others. Helping create more and better leaders within our membership strengthens our organization, building a solid foundation for attaining our long-term objectives. Among the tools, programs and opportunities available to our members are:  

• Owners Blog - Blogs featured here come from various sources from the Owners Association, often from our current Chairman, Committee chairman, and IHG executives. They touch on a broad range of topics, all topical, informative, and important to the hotel owner.

Leadership Coach Blog  - Modeled after the successful Leaders Lounge online leadership community created for IHG corporate senior leaders, the Owners Association Leadership Coach provides leadership support and tools. The information is provided in bite-sized amounts (usually taking less than a few minutes to consume), and each item is designed to help owners run their hotels better and/or to be better leaders.

Leadership Institute —A unique, three-day immersion program for owners and senior managers interested in expanding their leadership capacities.

Volunteer Leader Opportunities —Every member of the Association has the chance to apply for membership on any of our Brand, Global, Enterprise or Regional Committees. Committee membership provides the chance to step up as a leader and contribute directly to shaping the future of our organization and IHG.
