This announcement is to provide some details on the new NACo High Performance Leadership Academy (www.naco.org/skills).
This is the program NACo launched last year in partnership with the team from the Professional Development Academy, including General Colin Powell, Dr. Marshall Goldsmith, and many others.
Since the launch last year, the demand for this program by NACo members has been truly unprecedented. To provide a sense of the effectiveness this program has had on making leaders better, consider these testimonials from Academy graduates from Idaho:
The program has proven relevant and practical. Additionally, it is convenient and non-disruptive to busy schedules. The 12 weeks of content are expertly facilitated online and it takes about 3 – 4 hours per week for participants to fully engage in the program. ALSO, THE FIRST PERSON ENROLLED FROM EACH COUNTY RECEIVES A FULL SCHOLARSHIP FROM NACo! This means the first person from each county can enroll for $0 cost and everyone thereafter will receive onetime “buy one, get one” scholarship making their cost $1,695 for two county employees to enroll!
The next cohorts launch on August 3rd and September 14th and it would be great to enroll a few people from each county in ID. To date, we have the following counties participating:
