CCCAOE Leadership Academy 2024
Are you a New Dean, Program Manager or Faculty? Are you responsible for coordinating, managing or being part of an effective team in the community college setting? Are you an Administrative Assistant who is ready to be a leader?
Our leadership academy is a certificate program for CTE/EWD Professionals divided into 2 levels. Attendees learn new leadership skills and improve on those they already use within the community college setting.
The research is clear. Leadership is not about personality; it’s about behavior. What are those behaviors, and how does one learn to embody them? The experiential focus of this academy will give you practical and personal knowledge of leadership soft skills.
Level 1.0 – Leadership Academy: Mike Walsh
The Leadership Challenge
Level 2.0 – Leadership Academy
An all-NEW program – Coming January 2025!
“Leaders come from all walks of life and perspectives, and our ideas for change may vary, but the “why” was united in our group. I gained an insight into the methodology of leading and understanding the technical and behavioral components that have to align in order to have a good balance in our organization of being smart and healthy.”
“I am inspired to lead in new ways and also model this so change can come to my work environment.”
“Love the small group breakout sessions and time to discuss and hear the main general session’s feedback and responses. Good variety of activities to keep us engaged. Met some good people at other colleges who are developing their leadership skills also.”
“What went well for me was having interaction throughout the training and not just watching video after video and/or listening to someone present off PowerPoint slide the entire time.”
