LeadingAge PA and our national partner, LeadingAge, offer several exciting opportunities to help develop passionate, committed leaders who will create the future of aging services. These invaluable opportunities range from yearlong programs like Fellows in Leadership and The Larry Minnix Leadership Academy to indispensable resources like the Mid-level Manager Competency Development Guide. In-depth descriptions of these resources are shown below. 


LeadingAge PA's Fellows in Leadership

Fellows in Leadership is a dynamic LeadingAge PA leadership development opportunity created exclusively for our members. Designed to equip participants with knowledge and skills required to thrive in a new era of aging services, this yearlong LeadingAge PA leadership development program offers a unique educational experience. 

Fellows in Leadership engages participants through;

  • Self-evaluation and assessment
  • Peer-to-peer interaction
  • Skill-building exercises and delineation
  • Live learning opportunities
  • A small setting conducive to a high level of engagement

The Fellows in Leadership program is available to anyone who works for a LeadingAge PA member, irrespective of clinical or managerial experience. It is more important for potential LeadingAge PA Fellows to demonstrate deep leadership potential within their organization than it is for them to carry specific titles

We invite you to participate in this unique LeadingAge PA program for participating leaders in senior care.

Applications for the 2019 program year will be available in January 2019 - stay tuned!

LeadingAge National's Leadership Academy

The Larry Minnix Leadership Academy is a yearlong LeadingAge leadership development program designed to enhance the leadership skills and core competencies of nonprofit leadership within the LeadingAge membership.

The program's graduate level curriculum consists of five face-to-face learning experiences with several components, including:

  • Site visits to LeadingAge member communities
  • Intimate conversations with aging services leaders
  • Self-explorations of leadership styles through exercises and reading
  • An action learning project (View learning projects for previous years here.)

Applications for the 2019 LeadingAge Leadership Academy program are no longer being accepted. Applications for the 2020 program year will open in spring 2019.

Mid-level Manager Competency Development Guide

A highly competent mid-level manager is critical to the quality and stability of the workforce and to the well-being and safety of individuals who need support while living in residential and community-based settings. However, many employees are promoted into management positions before they receive proper training or develop an understanding of the key competencies that will enable them to be effective managers.

The LeadingAge Workforce Cabinet has developed a guide that can be used to help mid-level managers acquire the tools they need to successfully collaborate with and manage frontline staff. Download the guide now.
