LEADERSHIP FAIRFAX LOOKING FOR NEXT GENERATION COMMUNITY LEADERS
We invite you to apply to the Class of 2013
Are you an emerging leader or someone who is ready to take the next step in your leadership journey? Leadership Fairfax is accepting applications for the Emerging Leaders Institute, the LFI Signature Program and the new Lifetime Leadership Program. If you want to connect with established or emerging leaders who shape the business, government and nonprofit landscape of Fairfax County, Leadership Fairfax is the place to go.
Leadership Fairfax is a nonprofit corporation dedicated to finding, training and growing leaders who raise the tide not only in their organization or local community but in the whole Northern Virginia region. Graduates from all three programs become part of and stay connected to a fast growing number of servant leaders.
LFI is accepting applications for the Emerging Leaders Institute (ELI), a skill based development program for the high potential employees who are ready to focus on core leadership skills and are poised to move up in their organizations. ELI participants receive specialized leadership training in various areas that will take an individual’s potential into a powerful performance.
Applications are also being accepted for the LFI Signature Program, designed for established leaders, mid-level to senior manager, in the corporate, nonprofit and government sectors. This experiential community leadership development program is often referred to as a Master Degree Program in Fairfax County. Participants examine current issues while honing their leadership competencies in a team based, cohort environment.
Leadership Fairfax’s newest initiative, the Lifetime Leadership Program (LLP) is designed for individuals who are recently retired or who are getting ready to retire and want to move their lives from "success to significance." This program is being offered in partnership with Volunteer Fairfax and supported by George Mason University and the Positive Aging Coalition.
The return on investment for completing one of Leadership Fairfax’s programs is considerable. Graduates are better educated, positioning themselves as servant leaders in their community while having gained a unique understanding of how the community works. Their growth in leadership also benefits their business or organization. Additionally, they become part of a network of more than 1400 graduates that they can call on anytime. The alumni base certainly is a golden rolodex.
“LFI is one of the best resources in our community for developing talented professionals. All of our graduates at Cardinal Bank have gone on to careers where they have achieved wonderful success both personally and professionally. LFI teaches the importance of community partnerships and the importance of giving back.” – Kevin Reynolds, President of Cardinal Bank
