About Leadership Academy

The Larry Minnix Leadership Academy is a year-long leadership development program designed to enhance the leadership skills and core competencies of not-for-profit leaders within the LeadingAge membership. 

The Academy’s graduate-level curriculum provides a rich learning experience through multiple program components, including exposure to:

  • A foundation of leadership knowledge that Fellows can draw from to enhance their own leadership skills and core competencies.
     
  • Innovative organizations and the people responsible for transforming care and service delivery in our field.
     
  • Diverse perspectives from seasoned leaders and colleagues in the field to foster a deeper understanding of issues facing aging services providers.

An important aspect of the curriculum is to influence change and help advance innovative programs and practices through Action Learning Projects, where Fellows learn through hands-on, practical experiences by implementing a program or practice within their organization.
