VPMA LEAPThe 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.

• Understanding Behaviors, Influence, Communications and Strengths

• Developing Strategic Thinking, Strategies, Objectives and Action Planning

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.
