The League’s Leadership Institute is designed to help emerging and mid-level managers build their leadership skills to more effectively prepare for succession planning and promotion. This program includes six workshop-style classroom sessions on a variety of topics and the development of an action plan to extend the experience beyond the classroom. Students are encouraged to partner with their supervisor to tailor the plan to fit their professional growth plan.

Registration will be coming soon. For additional details, contact Jennifer Esser.
