How Will It Help Me?

Since learning how to lead is an ongoing task, the Academy brings together Selected members interested in continually building their leadership skills to engage and grow in a variety of ways including:

  • Interactive Conference Calls designed to spark insight and create foundational leadership knowledge.
  • Personal attention and tailored coaching through private, professional calls with the Academy Dean to dig into what is most relevant to each class member and how to use it in everyday life.
  • Creating connections with colleagues both in your class (which are limited to no more than 15) as well as Academy alumni who can relate to the unique challenges of the funeral service profession.
  • Access to respected Selected leaders in informal settings plus an opportunity to create a more structured mentor relationship.
