Training Overview Description

The Frontline Leadership Institute is an intensive leadership program designed to build skills and competency for current and future supervisors of Frontline staff. The training is to help newly promoted supervisors in the following service areas: mental illness, developmental disabilities, chronic substance abuse, traumatic brain injury, and Alzheimer's Disease and other age-related dementia.

The Leadership Institute helps build skill and competency for your organization’s mission, your professional and personal values, learning and training styles, leadership skills, leading and building teams, conflict and resolution, communication, participatory management and supervision, staff recruitment and retention, strength-based staff assessment, staff recognition and motivation strategies and includes the opportunity to network with other Frontline Supervisors from across the State of Alaska sharing their experiences, their challenges and the truly amazing work which they accomplish.

Gain knowledge, best practice and skills to be competent leaders and supervisors. Homework during the Institute and three follow-up audio conferences with assignments that challenge the participant to use real life, on-the-job scenarios are required to complete the Leadership Institute experience.

To successfully complete all participants are required to:

  1. Attend all Institute sessions
  2. Complete and turn-in all assignments
  3. Attend and participate in three scheduled post-Institute Online/Web delivered conferences
  4. Complete and turn-in all post-conference assignments
