ADVISA Leadership Academy

Experienced leader development

Organizational leadership that motivates and drives performance doesn’t happen by accident; it requires knowing how to identify and develop today’s top talent into the leaders of tomorrow. True leadership is working through others to achieve results—but working through others isn’t easy, especially when the others may be quite different than us.

“The coaching exercises are fantastic, and it was a great way to flesh things out with a peer and build a relationship.”

Leadership Academy 2024 Participant

It begins with self-awareness

Our leadership development approach begins with enhancing one’s self-awareness. We believe:

  • Leadership development is a journey, not an event
  • Adults learn best when they can experience new thoughts and ideas, rather than just hear about them
  • Leaders at all levels deserve management training opportunities to reflect and grow
  • Changing behaviors can take time—continual reflection and feedback, along with a strong leadership development program, support behavioral change

The Leadership Diversity Scholarship

In 2021, we introduced the Leadership Diversity Scholarship because diversity makes us better—more creative, more empathetic, and more effective. Further, when people with diverse backgrounds and identities become stronger leaders, entire departments, teams, organizations and communities benefit. Each year, we award fully funded scholarships to the Emerging Leader Series, Leadership Fundamentals and Leadership Academy to leaders from under-represented groups who are eager to grow their skills and positively influence their organizations.
