A new one-stop shop helps ASHA members develop their leadership skills based on their own interest and time availability.
Designed to help develop a strong pipeline of future leaders for the professions, the Leadership Academy will also help prepare volunteer leaders for ASHA, state associations and related professional organizations.
To get started in the online Leadership Academy, members can take two free leadership assessments to evaluate their strengths and areas of growth.
They can then choose to view any of 11 on-demand, one-hour webinars, each focused on a leadership competency—introduction to leadership, virtual meetings, high-performing teams, coaching others, leadership styles, emotional intelligence, conflict management, generative thinking, change leadership, strategic thinking and influencing others.
Leadership Academy participants can view the webinars for free or choose to earn ASHA continuing education units for a fee. The content is designed for all levels of leadership, ranging from entry-level to experienced leaders.
Viewing the webinars requires registration. To earn ASHA continuing education units (CEUs), you must be eligible to earn ASHA CEUs, pay a fee and take a learning assessment. Additionally, you must have paid the annual ASHA CE Registry fee.
The academy also provides a dedicated online community where members can exchange ideas on leadership, discuss leadership concepts as they apply them to their profession, and discuss key takeaways from the webinars. Community participants can receive feedback from peers on questions or challenges faced as a new or experienced leader in the workplace, learn about resources, and share their experiences as leaders in their professions.
The academy’s resource center includes links to other ASHA leadership programs and recommended readings and videos that support and expand on the webinars and key leadership concepts.
Future plans for the Leadership Academy include a leadership mentoring pilot program, additional webinars, podcasts and a state affiliates program to help state associations develop their future leaders.
