Accelerated Leadership Academy
The USG Accelerated Leadership Academy is a legacy program that was facilitated for ELI alumni scholars. The purpose of the USG Accelerated Leadership Academy (ALA) was to build a leadership culture by providing the next level of structured and continuous executive-level leadership development and certification that extend the initial Executive Leadership Institute experiences.
The ALA prepared ELI alumni scholars to excel in executive roles and align their long term professional goals with organizational opportunities. Additionally, the ALA rigorously identified and prepared a select pool of executive talent in advance of vacancies for critical positions within the USG.
Currently, there are no offerings of ALA scheduled.
The ALA included rigorous assessment methods and a variety of developmentally rich experiences consistent with best practices for executive development as delineated below:
Assessments: Leadership potential, decision styles, and development.
Development and career path planning: Identify strengths and developmental areas. Align development with career interests.
Executive Coaching: Confidential advisement on improving leadership effectiveness.
Learning forums: Learn skills for innovation, team growth, and leadership.
Action learning: Focus on driving innovation; work in cross-institutional teams.
Networking: Conversations with the Chancellor, Presidential Roundtable, Executive & Vice-‐Chancellor Convening.
