The Academy will launch with a two-day session in September 2017, and continue for nine months, concluding in May 2018. Sessions will run from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. All sessions will take place in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.
There will be an additional cohort-led session, with the date to be determined by each working group. Cohort groups will also arrange times and locations, as needed, for their meetings to complete group exercises between sessions.
Program Fee is $3,500 for ACC NCR members, and $3,835 for non-members (which also will provide one year of membership in the Association of Corporate Counsel and ACC NCR).
This fee is payable in full at time of enrollment.
Program cost includes the Leadership Circle Profile 360 assessment and a 90 minute debrief/coaching session for each Fellow, and a year's subscription to the Harvard Business Review.
Program costs are fixed. No reduced rates are available for this program.
The Leadership Academy is a robust cohort-based leadership development program that will take place over a nine month period. In addition to dynamic, in-person sessions with the Academy faculty, Fellows will engage in small working groups, both at the in-person sessions and in working-group sessions held in between the formal meetings. This group, or cohort, is a critical component of the program and much of the hands-on leadership development will be accomplished within these cohorts. The cohorts are small, with 5-6 individuals in each, and the success of the program depends on full participation in the cohort group as well as the faculty-led sessions. A Fellow’s failure to meet the obligations to their cohort will affect their own, as well as other Fellows’, experience and learning continuity. We estimate no more than 8-10 hours of preparation time each month and believe that the course assignments will not present an undue burden for Fellows.
Consequently, upon acceptance to the Academy, each Fellow will be asked to acknowledge and agree as follows:
