A small group of individuals who have completed Leadership Academy Phase I meet for three half days and one full day with an expert facilitator to continue and reinforce their leadership development journey. These cohort groups provide an appropriate confidential sounding board and support for each member. Participants learn from each other and from an expert leadership facilitator. At the end of each meeting, individuals develop a plan to apply a new leadership strategy, tactic, or technique to improve their leadership and performance within their organization. They then report about the implementation of their plan at the next cohort group meeting.
