Acceptance into the Leadership Academy is competitive. While ASCLS will underwrite the direct costs of your participation, including program materials and registration fees, there is a significant cost to participants, including travel and lodging. The larger investment is time and effort. Participants will be required to invest significant time over the course of the year, will be required to accept challenges to their views, and will devote considerable intellectual and emotional capital to the experience. You will get out of it what you put into it.
Requirements and Prerequisites:
Participants will understand leadership within four increasingly larger spheres of influence: Self > Team > Profession > Public. Each area of concentration takes three months with a theme for each month’s activities.
