Who is The National Society of Leadership and Success?

As the largest collegiate leadership honor society in the nation, with over half-a-million members on more than 500 campuses, The National Society of Leadership and Success believes that college is a time filled with exploration, diversity, and transformation. This critical phase of your life challenges you to seek out contrasting views, expand your knowledge and interests, and form your own, distinct identity.

As you discover your purpose and find your voice, forging a path forward in today’s world, The National Society of Leadership and Success is here to help. After all, we believe that no one succeeds solely on their own, as dreams are realized through perseverance and support; however ambitious your aspirations may be, however daunting the obstacles may seem–know that you are not alone.

Towards that end, a key part of our offerings are thought pieces and inspirational video content from leaders in areas as diverse as media and defense. In addition, we provide training sessions on topics from goal-setting to personal and professional accountability, and curate a series of compelling, interactive national lectures that challenges viewers to transform their lives and future careers.

In the past, we’ve featured leaders such as Huffington Post founder Arianna Huffington, former U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, The Today Show host Al Roker, and Inc. Magazine’s #1 Leadership Expert John C. Maxwell. Though success comes in many fields and in many forms, our speakers share three key traits: a hunger to succeed in all they do, the willingness to push their boundaries, and most importantly, confidence in uncomfortable and challenging situations.

These world-class leaders are driven, capable, and incredibly successful, but they all understand this: an individual’s success stems from a group effort built around inspirational mentors, friends, and loved ones. That’s why they’re paying it forward, sharing their hard-won experience and valuable knowledge, and arming you with vital insights for the road ahead.

In our view, learning and personal progress are lifelong endeavors, and in order to prepare our members to create positive, lasting change, we strive to build an inclusive, supportive community. Here at The National Society of Leadership and Success, we hope to assist you at every step, as you prepare to head out into the world and make your mark.
