This curriculum has been redesigned to integrate the concepts and components of theLeadership Academy for Supervisors (LAS) and Leadership Academy for Middle Managers (LAMM) trainings.

The NCWWI Leadership Academy uses a problem-based learning approach model where learners are enrolled in five online modules that are each followed by synchronous classroom modules that can be delivered virtually or in-person. Additionally, at the completion of each classroom module, participants have the opportunity to attend monthly coaching sessions facilitated by a trained leadership development coach.
