I wanted to show my boss I am ready to take on more responsibility. I got the tools and confidence to talk to my boss, colleagues and staff. I also was able to better myself, others and the company through ELA.

I never had formal management training before, and now I have it in ELA. Using the goal planning sheets is the most useful in my department and for me personally. I now understand what leadership means and how to apply it at work.

The Academy consists of three phases with 6-sessions in each phase.

Each of the 6 sessions in a phase occurs once every 2 months over the period of a year.

Professionals and business owners working on the fundamentals of business.
Emerging leaders working on the skills of leadership and management.

The first phase (year 1) establishes strength of personal leadership. The phase clarifies the skills and attitudes of successful leadership in an organization.

EL1—year 1: Leadership begins with self leadership. Community Service Project in coordination with employers.*

The second phase (year 2) puts the participants into leadership roles guiding first year community service projects within the framework of the academy. This phase further develops leadership skills by managing others.

EL2—year 2: Developing organizational leadership within the framework of the organizational values acting as board of directors for EL1 projects.*

The third phase (year 3) builds a collaborative environment while guiding and coaching others through company projects within the framework of the academy. This phase drives home the importance of putting into practice and executing plans through extended and direct teams.

EL3—year 3: Development of a “coaching/mentoring” style of leadership. MasterMind with co-participants. Apply new skills to organization’s projects. Coach and guide EL1 and EL2 participants.*

* Participants sign up for each phase independently. There is no obligation to participate in EL2 or EL3. However, the phases do build on the foundations of the previous phase and help insure execution and leadership skills develop fully.


  1. Each participant has the opportunity to become a well rounded servant leader through professional development.
  2. Create a new set of leaders and leadership skills to improve their organization’s performance.
  3. Realize a more engaged workforce.
