Aspiring Leadership Development Institute (ALDI)

Timely | Relevant | Thought Provoking | Insightful

The Leadership Development Institute is a special program offered each year during the NABA National Convention.  This is no ordinary conference seminar.  We partner with premier institutions to develop a signature mix of content that leverages an immersive curriculum approach to equip participants with the skills necessary for sustainable success.  The program is organized into three tracks:  Aspiring Leaders, Management and Executive, and a minimum of 4 years of experience is required to participate.

Session Description

The ALDI two-day program will will expose you to proven strategies that will help you market your skills & abilities by building a personal brand that reflects leadership presence.  Proactively take charge of your career mobility and be a part of a new & growing generation of black managers and executives.  Learn how to positively influence and impact team dynamics to drive business results. Take actions today to enhance your opportunities to achieve your career aspirations. 

For much of corporate America, racial diversity in leadership continues to be a challenge. There have been only 15 black CEOs in the history of the Fortune 500, of whom five are currently in the role. Black men and women account for only 5 Fortune 500 CEOs, 4.7% of executive team members in the Fortune 100, and 6.7% of the nation’s management jobs. The ALDI two-day program will provide you with an experiential learning environment designed to leave you with practical strategies and tools that when applied will immediately propel your career path forward.  You can sustain your learning by creating a development plan that will be measured through a post-conference coaching call.
