Testimonials from Past Attendees of n4a's Leadership Institute

For more than a decade, n4a's Leadership Institute has given n4a members a one-of-a-kind learning experience by helping professionals in aging take their skill sets—and their agencies—to the next level. The testimonials below describe how past attendees view the Leadership Institute as a transformative experience that has helped them develop new skills and collaborate with their peers while opening new possibilities for improving services offered in their communities.

According to Charisse Ross, Chief Program Officer for the Detroit Area Agency on Aging, the Leadership Institute provided her with “many Aha moments” and she is confident that the experience as a whole “will definitely make me a better leader, helping me get rid of old ineffective mindsets and behaviors.”
 
For Maxine Crowder, Program Analyst for the District of Columbia Office on Aging, the Leadership Institute helped redefine how she views leadership in the context of how she collaborates with and manages her team members. Maxine reports: “[I] gained a better understanding of my abilities, leadership style and a better appreciation of others' leadership styles. I am comfortable knowing that to lead I am not required to be ‘all knowing,' therefore involving my team members not only through the delegation of tasks but also managing tasks, encouraging them and assuring the team that their ideas, suggestions and recommendations are essential to our team's success."
