Due to the COVID 19 Pandemic THE LEadership Development Program has been Postponed for 2020

All information below pertains to the 2019 LDP program and will be updated once dates and information have been confirmed for 2021.

If you have additional questions about the program, please contact the LDP Chair, Paula Murray.

This 6-month program includes a personal Hogan assessment and debrief, evening workshops and webinars, two full-day workshops, paid entry into the fall Talent Management Conference and a half-day capstone event with graduation luncheon.

May 29th through Nov. 29th; plus, a half-day capstone event in early December.

The 2019 Leadership Development Program builds on the body of competency knowledge which supports the SHRM certifications (SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP) and reinforces our commitment to developing leaders of MT|SHRM and our HR community.

The program is a 6-month highly experiential course and is intended for mid-level HR professionals who are emerging leaders seeking to develop their leadership skills. Members who currently hold PHR or SHRM certifications will benefit from exposure to the competencies and can receive at least 25 pre-approved credits, potentially more, and up to an additional 11 self-reported credits.

The following competency areas from the SHRM certifications will be covered:

  • Relationship Management
  • Organizational Leadership & Navigation
  • Communication
  • Business Acumen

Classroom space is generously provided by Lipscomb University’s College of Business. Unless otherwise specified all in person events will occur at Lipscomb and include dinner.
