SPONSORSHIPS FOR THE ACC NCR LEADERSHIP ACADEMY

The ACC NCR Leadership Academy provides the tools and skills in-house attorneys need to optimize their leadership potential and succeed at the highest levels of their organizations.  The Academy consists of eight faculty-led sessions taking place over a nine-month period:

  • Module 1 - Being  A Leader:  Authentic Leadership; Personal Brand; Executive Presence & Strategic Networking

  • Module 2 - Emotional Intelligence and Interpersonal Communication

  • Module 3 - Developing and Leading a High Performing Team

  • Module 4 - Creating & Inspiring Vision; Leading & Managing Change

  • Module 5 - Managing Difficult Conversations; Influencing Stakeholders

  • Module 6 - Problem Solving and Decision Making

  • Module 7 - Presentation Skills

  • Module 8 - My Journey Toward Leadership Mastery

Each class of 30 or more distinguished in-house counsel – known as Fellows – is chosen through a selective application process.  The Fellows participate in a highly interactive learning environment, both in the classroom and working, both inside and outside of the classroom, with a smaller cohort. 

Nationally recognized faculty teach the Academy sessions.  The faculty members were selected because of their expertise and ability to translate concepts into the practical takeaways that in-house counsel need.

The Academy experience is enhanced by the members of the Board of Advisors, 14 chief legal officers and senior lawyers from a broad array of companies and organizations across the National Capital Region. The Board members are deeply committed to helping advance the next generation of in-house leaders. At least one Board member attends each Academy session.  Members of the Board of Advisors also participate in various Academy events and interact with the Fellows. 

Leadership Academy Sponsorships provide avenues for your firm or company to support this valuable program, and interact with the Fellows, faculty, and members of the Board of Advisors.
