· Address the on-going need for effective individual leadership skill development and increasing the addiction profession’s leadership capacity.
· Provide a learning experience that will ‘accelerate’ leadership development to complement work experience.
Developing effective leaders is of particular importance as the profession faces the overdose crisis, a changing behavioral healthcare landscape, and the impending retirement of many "baby boom" generation leaders.
The LDP is for emerging leaders from the addiction prevention, treatment, and recovery profession in New England as well as behavioral health, criminal justice, and other healthcare professionals. Criteria that define an emerging leader for this program include:
· Current (or previous) work experience in a supervisory or managerial capacity or role; this experience need not be exclusively in the addiction profession. Applicants without prior supervisory experience may be considered if they demonstrate exceptional qualities and potential for leadership roles.
· Operational management skills that include employee supervision, goal setting, budgeting, and/or managing financial resources.
· Have been identified as possessing exceptional leadership potential by others within the profession.
NOTE: Acceptance to this program is subject to a selection process based on target audience objectives and is not guaranteed.
