Cultivate Your Leadership Skills at ASA’s Leadership Institute

American Society on Aging’s Leadership Institute

The concept of leadership has been in the forefront of many discussions since the presidential election. What is the importance of leadership, and what does it take to be a good leader?

You can learn about leadership and your potential as a leader in the field of aging by participating in ASA's Leadership Institute. This five-day leadership development intensive offers self-assessments of communication and leadership styles, presentations by recognized leaders in the field of aging, facilitated dialogue, networking opportunities, leadership literature and online learning. Program components are carefully designed to prepare the next generation of leaders in the field of aging.

"This was truly an enlightening experience for me. I learned so much about myself and the type of leader I want to be. I received tools that will help me along the way and met other leaders that I can share ideas with, and a few that will serve as mentors for me." -2016 Leadership Institute Participant

This unique leadership development opportunity is open to all professionals in the field of aging who have at least three to five years’ experience and a strong interest in building personal leadership skills and capabilities. Successful participants will earn a Leadership Institute Certificate of Completion and up to eight CSA CEUs.
