Word on The Street

Past attendees and employers rave about the benefits
and value of IAAP Leadership Academy.

"The cost is nominal and the value is tremendous. In addition to the content,
the opportunity to network, support one another, and lead is invaluable."

Dave Schecklman
VP & CIO Oshkosh Corporation

"Often our admins are overlooked when it comes to educational opportunities,
but when you give them a chance to learn and grow it can only benefit
your relationship with them and their relationship with the company."

Executive of an IAAP Leadership Academy 2015 Attendee

"What did Leadership Academy do for me? Wow. This class, and the coaching calls, feed one of two needs: it either convinces you of who you always were, or it confirms the suspicion you’ve had about who you could be. It allows you to circumvent that nagging belief that you are ‘just an admin’. Even if your goals lie outside of the profession, it stresses that your fate is firmly in your hands – not your boss', nor is it belied by the typical assumptions made about your role. It is up to you. The coaches and lessons within equip you with the skills and techniques needed to take your natural abilities and use them to their full extent, and impress upon you that how you view your skills dictates how others view them. Furthermore, the classes teach you how to use these skills to impact your future, and the one-on-one coaching sessions give you a sounding board as you attempt to implement these changes; a personal cheering section that you may not have previously known that you needed. In case it was understated—I loved this class. Veronica helped me tremendously, and it’s already resulted in a promotion with numerous other opportunities."
