Special thank you to LeadingAge of Massachusetts, New Hampshire-Maine, and Rhode Island for their dedication to developing opportunities for their members.
ELDER and Lasell College are partnering with LeadingAge Massachusetts, LeadingAge Maine-New Hampshire, and LeadingAge Rhode Island, to offer the Strategic Management Track which complements their existing efforts to support and strengthen managers at our member organizations.
Designed for supportive learning, the track offers five mini management courses spaced out to be manageable. You meet live five evenings between October, 2015 and March, 2016 at Lasell College in Newton, MA, conveniently near the Massachusetts Turnpike and 128/95.
Members of LeadingAgeMA, RI, ME & NH will receive a discounted price
Management courses, for the eldercare field, based on your scarcest resource: your time!
As a response to interviews with your leaders, the classes are now “lumped”. You spend a few hours a week mid October through Thanksgiving working on strategic goals, then you’re completely off until mid January, when you study marketing, or how to communicate according to your strategy. You start again through late March, building on the work earlier in the year, learning about managing a plan or project to completion.
Earn your Professional Studies Certificate from Lasell College while earning CEUs.
No application required. CEUs available for Social Workers, Nursing Home Administrators and Nurses.
Why is a live classroom or an online classroom a great place for adult learners? Unlike mandatory training, people who show up in a live or online classroom want to be there. But that doesn’t mean that everyone is sure what they will experience: in our courses, you learn alongside managers from peer organizations who have varied perspectives in varied parts of the eldercare field. To get the most out of the opportunity, your obligation is to share ideas and apply the concepts from class to your organization. The faculty and experts help you do this. This is why our classes are called “experiential learning.”
Supportive learning: with the guidance of a leader in your field, each assignment is one step towards better management.
Our instructors give you small assignments that build your management skills to apply to work. Each assignment is a step towards a strategic initiative, a step towards a marketing plan for a segment of the market, an approach to a partner on the continuum, or the analysis of a conflict or change effort. All with a great leader in the field who has the tools to help you manage better.
Compliments the Leadership Academy
All senior managers, managers or supervisors in senior serving organization qualify, regardless of educational background, and regardless of your organization’s place on the continuum. Our participants tell us that the diversity of perspectives enriches the learning. The most important factor for success is a desire to improve your skills, to help your organization move towards the future, and a willingness to invest time in learning.
This program is appropriate for graduates of LeadingAge Massachusetts Leadership Academy, but one need not have attended Leadership Academy to be eligible or to benefit from the curriculum. The two programs compliment each other.
