One of the most important aspects of leadership is bringing out the best in others and using strategies such as understanding yourself and your team, ethical reflection, developing trust, effectively communicating and then empowering others to help accomplish this. While tactical skills can be learned in the moment, it is the people side that is often missed when moving into a leadership role. This makes the journey of becoming an effective leader harder than it has to be. The Charmm'd Foundation's Leadership Academy is a multi-year program for those who are new to leadership, are being considered for a leadership role within the next couple of years and / or are looking for fundamental training on the people side of leadership.
To ensure a high-quality learning experience, the number of Participants is limited to 60 individuals with a strong desire to lead and better their organization. A pre-requisite for participation in The Leadership Academy will include approval from the Participant’s leader and an exploratory interview with the candidate. Each candidate will be reviewed by the Charmm’d team. Acceptance into the program will be communicated on an ongoing basis.
