The Leadership Institute provides skill-based training to assist you in becoming a more effective leader of your team, work group, or organization. The training will focus on how to inspire and motivate staff, lead change, and foster innovation. This training is intended for both new and more seasoned leaders in the victim services field.


The training will be delivered online, over the course of 11 weeks, beginning on August 27, 2018. Each week, except for the prework week, will include an instructor-facilitated webinar, along with recommended readings, videos, and written assignments. You should expect to spend about an hour per week on these activities in addition to participating in the 75-minute webinar. Each webinar will be recorded, so if you are not able to attend one, you will be able to listen to the recording. CEUs will be awarded to those who complete all of the requirements.


Like all of OVC TTAC’s trainings, there is no cost to attend. Please review your schedule to make sure you are available to attend the webinars and will be able to make the necessary time commitment to complete the training activities.


Please note: Space is limited. Apply today to reserve your space.
