Leadership Academy for Tallahassee Professional Leadership Development
Extraordinary, innovative leadership development training, mentoring, coaching, and evaluation is available to professionals in the Tallahassee area! In 2013, Tallahassee Community College joined forces with Gabrielle Consulting to provide unprecedented leadership development opportunities to equip talented professionals. Two cohorts of diverse leaders representing industry, small business, government, nonprofits, and education participated in the first Leadership Excellence And Development (LEAD) program year of the Leadership Academy of Tallahassee:
The 12-month program was developed by Dr. Gabrielle K. Gabrielli and takes a systematic approach to leadership development by providing rigorous curriculum, assessments, coaching, mentoring, and formative and summative evaluation. In addition to classroom-based instruction, leaders remain connected via technology including a website portal, discussion forum, and monthly sessions. Investment in the yearlong comprehensive is $1998 for emerging leaders and $2498 for seasoned leaders.

Do not delay applying as applicants will have priority consideration in 2018.
The leadership development program enhances leaders’ skills and directly benefits their influence on others, in turn positively impacting the bottom lines of organizations they serve. The Leadership Academy provides meaningful resources and tools leaders take back to their workplaces to shape their careers, innovate within their organizations, and be active participants engaging in meaningful transformation individually, professionally, community-wide, and beyond.
Dr. Gabrielle K. Gabrielli is a graduate of Leadership Tallahassee and saw a need to not only expose citizens to leaders in our community, but also to help develop leadership skills in a systematic way. The Leadership Academy was a 10-year dream of hers that came to fruition in 2013. The Tallahassee leadership program began when select leaders took part in a focus group to provide guidance including naming the program and giving insights about specific needs. A Leadership Advisory Council provides ongoing advice.
