Leadership Academy for Middle Managers
Learning to adapt to the ever-changing environment of child welfare is essential to being an effective middle manager. The National Child Welfare Workforce Institute (NCWWI) has developed a competency-based training module for middle managers who work in public and tribal child welfare systems as well as those who work for private agencies under contract with a state or county child welfare agency. The Leadership Academy for Middle Managers is based on the NCWWI Leadership Model.
This training module aims to help middle managers develop leadership skills for sustaining systems changes to improve outcomes for children, youth, and families through leadership competencies and then apply these leadership skills through a personalized professional development plan.
The training components include preparation and pretraining coaching, residential training and coaching, posttraining coaching, peer network and distance learning opportunities, and self-study or homework.
