Advancing Executive Leaders Program

This five day intensive leadership program is for women who have reached Senior Management levels (e.g., Director, Group Manager, Vice President or even the C-Suite). Prior to being enrolled in the program, potential participants will be required to complete a competency assessment to evaluate their skill levels; based on the results of this assessment, Acacia will prescribe the appropriate program. [Note: Women who have already completed the Acacia Institute’s Emerging Leaders program may advance to this level without completing further competency assessments.]

Unlike our other programs, the Advancing Leaders program requires participants to be immersed in an intensive off-site experience where they are completely focused on accelerating their skills. The program is all-inclusive and the locations are chosen with the utmost comfort in mind.

A maximum of 25 participants will prepare for their program by completing a 360 assessment (to be completed by their direct reports and peers) as well as other pre-session homework. The learning sessions will all be interactive and the session leaders will be expert in each area.

Bonnie Powers, Co-Founder of the Acacia Institute, is the Ambassador for the Advancing Leaders program.
