Rocky Mountain Leadership Program is a week-long, intensive, residential leadership program for professionals working in government, nonprofits and as elected officials. The program occurs in early October at the Mountain Thunder Lodge in Breckenridge, Colorado. Attendees stay on the lodge property, and sessions are held in the main lodge building.
The nature-rich environment offers a perfect setting for learning, personal reflection, professional networking and planning for new approaches to your leadership.
Session topics include leadership style, self-awareness, teamwork, strategic thinking, neuroscience of leadership, ethics, emotional intelligence and change leadership. Workshop content is customized based on the experiences and interests of each cohort.
Each program has a theme for the year, and the 2019 theme will be Engagement, Equity and Change.
Rocky Mountain Leadership Program is well suited for mid- to high-level managers in nonprofits, government, special districts and elected officials in Colorado and across the U.S.
The program fee is $3,750 and includes five days of leadership seminars, leadership self-assessments, special guests, activities and books that coincide with the programming. Most meals are included in the program fee. An online classroom connects students to each other and to course materials before and after the program.
The lodging is in suites that include a separate bedroom and full kitchen to help attendees feel at home during the week. Lodging is an additional cost provided at a discount rate of approximately $150 per night.
Students seeking academic credit pay an additional $400 fee.
Scholarships are available.
