The Virginia Pest Management Association (VPMA) has released the application for its inaugural Leadership Enrichment Action Program (LEAP).
This new and innovative learning opportunity will provide participants with a fresh take on leadership skills that can be put to immediate use in any size company, department or even in one’s personal life. The entire three-part program, which begins in November 2018 and concludes in May 2019, covers Personal & Team Leadership; Organizational Leadership and a Leadership Implementation Toolbox. Each session includes advanced thinking around ideas such as:
• Understanding Behaviors, Influence, Communications and Strengths
• Developing Strategic Thinking, Strategies, Objectives and Action Planning
• Leading Innovation, Decision Making and Driving Change
Sessions are fast-paced, with numerous individual and group break-out exercises to ensure the workshop is interactive. This inspires real-life application of the content and encourages group learning, the VPMA says in a press release, noting that the program is modeled on a similar one hosted by the Georgia Pest Control Association (GPCA).
The application process includes a complete application including employer permission, one letter of recommendation and a resume; followed by a phone interview with the selection committee. Deadline to submit the application is Aug. 1, 2018. For more information and an application, call the executive office at 877-875-8722 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
