The Takeaway

Leadership development is a proven way in which leaders can improve their organizations to better fulfill their mission, obtain its vision, and operate in line with its values.  Research clearly indicates that organizations do better when there is a deliberate investment in the team to improve their competencies and related soft skills.  As better workplace relationships develop, so too will there be a measurable impact on the members.  Growing values-based leaders who are committed to organizational excellence is key to their success. 

This has truly been one of the best learning opportunities I have taken part in, and I will cherish the experience throughout my career. Thank you to the Association for providing this opportunity!

It’s hard to describe how much I have learned & taken away from the Association Leadership Institute. Skills & tactics that will help me for many years to come, both professionally and personally. Each workshop taught me something about myself and helped to identify opportunities for improvement.
