Organizational & Community Leadership Development Program
Created for participants who wish to improve their leadership skills, this program is ideal for men and women who are currently in a leadership position or who are looking to step into leadership roles in their organization and/or community. The Leadership Academy’s mission is to create, build, and connect community leaders to provide them with the tools necessary to create positive change in the Quad Cities.
This five-month program was designed to develop skills by teaching techniques and strategies for anyone sitting in a leadership position – whether you lead a department, a project, a team, or just yourself. Program topics help participants discover attributes of a great organization, manage change, communicate masterfully, create effective teams, harness the ability to influence, build powerful connections and more. Participants benefit from meeting with community leaders, who share their personal journeys and leadership advice with the group, and a group project either researching a community issue or assisting a nonprofit organization with an existing community project.

“The Leadership Academy was truly motivating! Ginny provided a fresh prospective on effective leadership skills and ways to use those skills to create a positive change in our community. I was able to take a closer look at myself, concentrate on my strengths, and build my own leadership style.”
