The Leadership and Influence Group (LIG) is a University of Chicago Booth student group that strives to develop high-caliber managers and leaders by helping students develop and polish their soft-skill repertoire. LIG focuses on interpersonal communication, conflict management, group dynamics, and effectively influencing & motivating others.

LIG invites management gurus, leading faculty members, senior executives from top firms, and leadership consultants to deliver lectures and conduct experiential workshops with students interested in furthering their leadership potential. Additionally, LIG organizes social events and volunteer opportunities for students interested in meeting others who share their passion for leadership, and who wish to be an ambassador for Booth in both professional and local communities.
