2021 Leadership Academy Class Announced

Congratulations to this year's Leadership Academy Class. 2021 marks the largest cohort of fellows in its 12-year history. 

Since 2010, Leadership Academy has developed leadership capacity and core competencies of more than 300 aging services professionals by tapping their natural talents and authentic leadership style. It blends leadership theory, applied learning, and personalized coaching to mentor current and emerging leaders in our field. 

The Leadership Academy Experience

Leadership Academy is not a class. It's an immersion experience that blends leadership theory, applied learning and personalized coaching. Fellows participate in a rigorous journey of interactive experience, self reflection, critical skill development and action learning.

Our accomplished alumni represent transformational leaders who are not just responding to the changing times but who are driving positive change for their organizations and the aging services community. 


Leadership Academy is built around the following themes:

  • Session #1 - Authentic Leadership (June)
  • Session #2 - Rethinking Thinking (July)
  • Session #3 - Motivating and Leading Teams (September)
  • Session #4 - Transformational Leadership (December)
