National Leadership Institute on Developmental Disabilities - Summer 2019

Date: 06/2019

Applications for the University of Delaware's National Leadership Institute on Developmental Disabilities, to be held this summer (July 21-26) will be accepted through June 14, 2019. 

This week-long, intensive leadership development program is designed for current executive-level leaders and emerging leaders. Participants may work in areas of management or program leadership in organizations that provide, advocate for, or fund supports for people with intellectual/developmental disabilities and their families.

The focus of the Leadership Institute is on assessing and strengthening leadership skills, setting organizational direction, and understanding the future of the intellectual/developmental disabilities field. Institute participants come away with demonstrated leadership ability and a firm grasp of the skills and values critical for quality, individualized supports.

Participants will learn the skills needed to:

  • Succeed in leadership challenges unique to the developmental disabilities field today;
  • Manage and sustain person-centered, values-based transformational change;
  • Build and sustain positive organizational culture at all levels;
  • Challenge the status quo through risk-taking; and,
  • Set and achieve ambitious goals for themselves and their organization.

A highlight of the course for past participants has been the relationships that are built over the week-long experience. Participants will leave with a network of colleagues and enduring relationships with some of the most influential leaders in the field.

Applications are due by June 14, 2019.
