LeadingAge Oregon Leadership Academy

The LeadingAge Oregon Leadership Academy offers a challenging and engaging year-long learning experience, designed to help aging services professionals accelerate their leadership development so they are better equipped to serve our field.  The program is led by Jordan River Group who focuses on identifying opportunities for all program participants and helps them develop personalized playbooks that lead to repeatable and measurable outcomes. 

The Leadership Academy is for individuals in the aging services field who are in the early and middle stages of their careers.  It is for people who want to know more about LeadingAge Oregon and the field of aging services while also looking to enhance their leadership skills and participate, network and develop their career. 

This year we are excited to offer two tracks for participants who are at different places along their leadership journey. 

  • Level I is one for mid-level managers with at least 1 year of supervisory experience or those who have been identified as strong emerging leaders and
  • Level II is for managers with more than 3 years of leadership experience for leaders who have been through Leadership Academy in the past, or who have been in a leadership role and are ready to further strengthen their skills. 

Participants can be from any department or division, as diversity is a core value of the program.  To participate in the Level I track, a person completes a simple enrollment form.  Multiple people from a community are welcome to participate.  To participate in the Level II track, a person must apply and one person per community may participate.

Throughout the program, participants will attend forums, participate in fieldwork, and receive coaching and mentorship. At the conclusion of the program, participants will demonstrate readiness for higher-level roles within their respective organizations.
