In the 21st century, senior executives of public and private sectors face special challenges. They must be visionary leaders with a strong commitment in driving results. They must be able to apply “people skills” to motivate their constituencies, build partnerships, and communicate with their constituencies. They need solid executive, negotiation, leadership, and international affairs core skills in order to address issues faced by  an organization, a community, a nation, or our world, and  produce optimum results with limited resources. The United States Institute of Leadership and Diplomacy focuses its activities on training world class international public and private sector leaders, expected to be wise enough and strong enough to advocate and implement policies deemed to promote the liberty and justice.​

We can identify the traits of leading and effecting change in the leadership of Thomas Jefferson (April 13, 1743–July 4, 1826) who was a leading  Founding Father of the United States, the author of the Declaration of Independence (1776) and he served as the third President of the US (1801–1809). Jefferson was a committed Republican – arguing passionately for liberty, democracy and devolved power, he was an agent of change who made a difference in the renovation of American Constitution. He also wrote the Statute for Religious Freedom in 1777 which has moved forward the Freedom of Religious not in the U.S. but also adopted in the Constitutions of nations around the world.  Religious Freedom statute was adopted by the state of Virginia in 1786. Jefferson sought to introduce a bill (1800) to end slavery in all Western territories. As President, he signed a bill to ban the importation of slaves into the US (1807). All of the above stated Jefferson's actions have moved back discrimination among citizens of the same nation and have effected change that posed the grounds of liberty, democracy, and equality
