Leadership Academy for Tallahassee Professional Leadership Development

Extraordinary, innovative leadership development training, mentoring, coaching, and evaluation is available to professionals in the Tallahassee area and beyond! 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 participate in the Leadership Excellence And Development (LEAD) program of the Leadership Academy of Tallahassee:

  • Emerging leaders including young professionals, career changers, and those seeking leadership roles
  • Seasoned leaders including executives, supervisors, and those seeking to leave a legacy of leadership and influence

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 at the state-of-the-art Leadership Development Center, leaders remain connected via technology including virtual attendance options, a website portal, discussion forum, and monthly sessions. Investment in the yearlong comprehensive is $1998 for emerging leaders and $2498 for seasoned leaders. Apply today to join the 2024 Leadership Academy! Do not delay applying as applicants will have priority consideration in 2024.

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. Diverse professionals have range from ages 20-78 and have been in various professions from education to government to the private sector to nonprofits. Participants have held roles from executive directors and CEOs to professors, managers, young professionals seeking advancement opportunities, seasoned professionals looking at post-retirement opportunities, and some who were between jobs when they joined the Leadership Academy but who found opportunities as a result of it.

Dr. Gabrielle K. Gabrielli is a graduate and lifetime member of Leadership Tallahassee and saw a need 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.
