2024-2025 Leadership Academy

Prepare the next generation of leaders

The Academy builds a rich cohort of participants diverse in geography, area of program responsibility, and career development – inclusive of individuals ready to make the leap to senior leadership now, and those in the earlier stages of their leadership journey.

The program also has a mentoring component that facilitates a relationship between each Academy participant and a CEO or member of upper management from another Incompass Michigan member organization – for one-on-one discussion, guidance, advice, and opportunities to learn how the subject matter addressed in the classroom is applied in the working world.
