APPLICATION DEADLINE IS SEPTEMBER 16, 2020

Due to the impact of COVID-19, the Leadership Development Program (LDP) cohort 4 is being completely offered virtually for autumn 2020.

 

ABOUT:

The New England Addiction Technology Transfer Center (ATTC) is pleased to announce the 4th cohort of the Leadership Development Program (LDP) for addiction professionals from across the continuum of care. This program will focus on key leadership skills using a range of learning methods designed to increase your effectiveness immediately.

 

This program includes the use of an intact learning community that includes participants from all aspects of care: prevention, intervention, treatment, and recovery. The learning community will be as diverse as possible to represent the profession and those served.

 

The COVID-19 pandemic, coupled with the ongoing opioid epidemic, has emphasized the importance of strong leadership. We are pleased to offer the 4th cohort this “Reimagined” Virtual LDP, which has been carefully designed to maintain the interactive curriculum that is crucial to leadership development.

 

PROGRAM GOALS:

·     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.

 

TARGET AUDIENCE:

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.
