Leadership Development Academy

Leadership development is essential to organizational success in today’s fast-changing and complex institutions. The Higher Ed Institute helps institutions develop their own Leadership Development Academy (LDA) that establishes a leadership center of excellence on site for the development of leaders throughout the institution. We encourage institutions to identify emerging leaders from all sectors of the institution who are interested in positively impacting the environment. The training provided through the LDA is a personal and professional empowerment experience for participants.  

We routinely work with the Office of Human Resources to design a program (10-12 days) that is usually offered 1 day per month during the academic year. We conduct an assessment of training needs and design the curriculum based on assessment results. The curriculum focuses on the environment in which institution operates, the key functional areas of leadership, the development, and implementation of higher education strategy and execution. Classroom learning is brought to life through hands-on exercises that demonstrate how a community college practitioner applies the concepts in a holistic and integrated way.

We focus on; 90 Day Action Plan, Climate and Condition Review, Talent development platform, Team building, Communication,, Personal effectiveness, Team effectiveness. LDA participants gain knowledge about their own institutions well as regional and national leadership issues They develop their leadership acumen, team building skills, communication skills, knowledge to build organizational effectiveness, and an expanded professional network with others necessary to become effective contributors within their institution.
