Take Your Leadership Skills to the Next Level Through NACo’s High Performance Leadership Academy

The NACo High Performance Leadership Academyis an online 12-week program that empowers frontline county government professionals with the most fundamental leadership skills to deliver results for counties and communities.

NACo launched this program last year in partnership with the team from the Professional Development Academy, including General Colin Powell, Dr. Marshall Goldsmith, and many other executives from both private industry and government agencies.

More than 500 counties have enrolled emerging and existing leaders since the launch of the program last year, with incredible feedback and results.  In fact, the positive feedback and demand for this NACo program has been truly unprecedented; to the point that NACo now has four planned starts this year, the next one is in August.

The program has proven relevant and practical for the leaders and is convenient and non-disruptive to busy schedules. The 12 weeks of content are expertly facilitated online and it takes about 4-5 hours per week for participants to fully engage in the program.

The first person enrolled from each NACo member county receives a $1,500 scholarship! This means the first person from each county costs only $495 and everyone enrolled thereafter will receive a $300 scholarship making their cost only $1,695!
