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.

YEAR 1


The Leadership Academy offers multiple opportunities for Participants to build strong networks for continued growth, support and friendships.

Throughout the first year, Participants will enjoy learning from Keynote Speakers, Panel Experts, Mentors and fellow Participants. In addition, Participants will work together in Cohorts to practice important leadership skills, discuss key learnings from the workshops, problem-solve and ponder questions that promote strategic thinking.




YEAR 2


The first year of The Leadership Academy concludes in November 2021. Each Participant will then graduate to a Peer Advisory Group that best fits where they are on their personal leadership journey. Groups of 15 will meet bi-monthly. Participants will discuss a broad range of leadership topics, be introduced to a variety of resources, process what they are learning and how this fits into real-life situations. At the end of each meeting, all will reflect on what they learned and commit to taking action to move them forward. They will also help to hold one another accountable. Placement for these Groups will occur in November 2021.





To ensure a high-quality learning experience, the number of Participants will be kept to under 75 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.
