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. Both level 1 and level 2 attendees will enjoy key note speakers, technical sessions, and will have the opportunity to share insight during networking opportunities.
LEVEL 1 Leadership Academy
Build the core knowledge, skills, and networking essential to CTE and EWD professionals. 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 2 Leadership Academy
Enhance your voice as a leader to leverage proven behaviors and techniques to establish your own communication style and authentic leadership voice for engaging, inspiring, and motivating others in CTE and EWD efforts. Leadership is less about authority and more about influence. How does one use his or her influence to change an entire system? Level Two experiential workshop explores what it takes to Master Leadership so that your influence, no matter your hierarchal level, can be used to leverage meaningful change in the community college system.
