Can you imagine what would happen if General Colin Powell, Fortune 1000 CEOs and other executives came together with career coaches and professors from the most prestigious universities to mentor your frontline leaders? What if we could leverage such talent and expertise to advance excellence in county government?

Thanks to the NACo High Performance Leadership Academy, we can.

A 12-week online program was designed — in partnership with the Professional Development Academy — to enable newly elected officials to achieve their fullest potential, making them smarter, more effective leaders.

Additionally, and importantly, the academy is designed to be non-disruptive to newly elected officials’ busy schedules. It requires just a few hours of time each week, and there’s no travel away from the county required.

The NACo High Performance Leadership Academy will help to retain rising stars in county government and enable them to be better leaders.

“You can’t put into words the value of this course. Fantastic moderators and video viewpoints from amazing leaders. Highly recommended for all level of leaders.” – Polk County Wisconsin Commissioner

“This program has taught me new leadership tactics, reinforced 30 years of leadership training and experience, and created a nationwide network of leaders.” – Magoffin County Kentucky Judge

“This program has connected me to others who share the same struggles that I am going through as a leader.  This enables me to use them as a support system when needed.” – Wapello County Iowa County Recorder

Take this opportunity to close the leadership gap. The next programs begin January 2022 and we would love to see you be a part of it.
