Who Should Apply?

The course is a week-long, intensive leadership development program for those identified by their organizations as emerging leaders. Participants may work in areas of management or program leadership in organizations that provide, advocate for, or fund community-based services and supports for people with developmental disabilities and their families.

Institute participants will come away with demonstrated leadership ability and a firm grasp of the values that are critical for quality, individualized supports. Both current executive-level leaders and those who anticipate filling these leadership roles in the future are invited to apply.

Participants will learn the skills needed to:

  • Manage and sustain person-centered, values-based transformational change;
  • Succeed in leadership challenges unique to the field of developmental disabilities;
  • Challenge the status quo through experimentation and risk-taking;
  • Set ambitious goals for yourself and your organization; and
  • Build and sustain positive organizational culture and inspire the positive contribution of team members at all levels.

The Leadership Institutes are co-sponsored by:
The Center for Disabilities Studies, Liberty Healthcare Corporation, The ANCOR Foundation, The Council on Quality and Leadership, The National Association of State Directors of Developmental Disabilities Services, and the American Express Foundation.
