The only time you can earn a Leadership in Action (LIA) award is when you are a Cadette. And you can only earn it by working with Brownies working on a Brownie Journey. Here's an overview by Deborah Corbishley to help you pick which one to work on (first). And if you're a Brownie leader working on a Journey, perhaps you can find a few Cadettes or a Cadette troop who'd like to work with you. Just ask.
