Call for Applications: Rollins Leadership Academy - Advanced Leadership Program


The Rollins Leadership Academy is now accepting applications for the Spring 2013 Advanced Leadership Program (ALP).  The ALP is an extension of the Rollins Leadership Foundations program and is intended to advance leadership learning, problem solving and community building across the Rollins enterprise by strengthening the capacity of each employee to support the College mission through effective and responsible leadership. The program will build upon the fundamental elements of the Leadership Foundations program and provide participants with the opportunity to explore emerging leadership topics and reexamine their own leadership proficiency and ongoing developmental needs within a community of fellow academy graduates and expert feedback coaches.

The ALP is premised on the philosophy that leadership development is an ongoing and never ending process of self-examination, reflection, feedback, learning and coaching.

The ALP will provide participants the opportunity to:

  • Develop a deeper understanding of contemporary leadership issues within the transforming leadership climate
  • Reassess leadership within a peer group of Academy graduates and instructors
  • Enhance awareness of their evolving leadership style
  • Stimulate continued learning and self-actualization
  • Reinforce strengths and identify developmental opportunities
  • Create an individualized Leadership Development Action Plan
  • Expand relationships that enhance leadership effectiveness

This will be achieved through an integrated program of:

  • One-on-one leadership coaching and peer group coaching roundtables
  • Administration and interpretation of advanced leadership assessment instruments (DiSC Work of Leaders Profile and a 360 Degree Peer/Leadership Feedback Survey)
  • Participation in a series of expert-lead roundtable discussions on emerging and contemporary leadership topics
  • Assigned Readings Intended to Advance Leadership Learning and Competency Development
  • Collaborative Developmental Action Planning and Follow-up Assessment with a Feedback Coach

This program is open to Leadership Academy Foundations program graduates and those who have completed comparable foundational leadership development programs.  The anticipated class size is 16.
