We believe that the best leadership programs take place over a substantial period of time, introduce multiple perspectives and tools to a diverse team of adult learners, and engage those adults in learning from one another.

Background

The program began in 2009 with funding from the Rick E. Carter Leadership and Governance Fund, the James B. Swanson Fund, and Silverchair Learning Systems, and continues through the generosity of leaders and sponsors within our profession. The leadership curriculum was developed in partnership with Ethical Leaders in Action and its president, lead program instructor Dr. Charles Weinstein. Together, we continue to improve it each year.

The Fellowship's individual and group projects benefit not only the participants, but also the long-term care profession in general.

"It has been even more enriching than I had imagined. Chad has created a group dynamic where we really have personally invested in the process and are sharing and trusting in open ways."

"Each month I brought back information I had learned and shared with the other senior leaders in our center. It was a great way for all of us to benefit from my participating in the class."

"This has been a brilliant opportunity to step out of the day-to-day scene and take time to really focus on and collaborate on being better leaders. The group is very interactive and I have personally been able to take away something very positive after each meeting."
