Advanced Leadership Corps

ALC is an immersive personal development program comprised of three parts: one-on-one oral presentation skills coaching, a six-day residential leadership development program, and post-program one-on-one leadership coaching. To apply, visit the UNC School of Government’s website here.

Part 1: Oral Presentation Skills Coaching – The coach comes to you! You will learn how to hold an audience’s attention and begin to craft your personal leadership vision.

Part 2: Residential Leadership Program – In this week-long intensive course, you will create strong and lasting relationships with your fellow participants as you learn together in a series of activities that will strengthen your ability to effectively lead and govern. Sessions are held each day and most evenings.

Part 3: Post-program Leadership Coaching – An experienced coach will help you interpret the feedback you received from your multi-rater leadership assessments. This personal leadership coaching will help you delve further into your own behaviors and practices in a way that strengthens your capacity to lead others.
