Mid-Manager Professional Development Series (Levels 1 and 2)

The Mid-Manager Professional Development series (Level 1) is a once-a-month, five-month long program designed for new managers or those who are ready for new management challenges. The objective of the program is to assist participants in developing a better understanding of themselves and their leadership potential, the aging services field, and how they can use that knowledge to develop a more integrated view of their job and organization.

The sessions focus on skill-building and knowledge enhancement in the following areas: providing leadership in a senior housing environment, gaining financial acumen, delegation and working in teams, developing and managing people, and business communications. Each participant is required to complete a ProScan analysis which assesses each participant’s leadership and communication styles, their strengths while gaining insight into stress levels, motivators and de-motivators. ProScan results are provided to each participant.


The Leadership Acceleration series (Level 2) targets those managers with at least two years of experience in managing people, who are interested in learning more advanced leadership techniques and how to apply them in cross-functional and potentially interdisciplinary environments. This also is a once-a-month, four-month long program that delves into high level management concepts such as enhancing leadership and presence and understanding leadership governance; using delegation and influence while working in a cross-functional environment; building financial success; and business communications. The program is complimentary to the Mid-Manager Professional Development Series, but one does not have to complete the latter to take the acceleration program. Each participant will be required to complete the ProScan analysis prior to the first class.
