Leadership RFMA: Program Elements


Application/Selection Process
Applications will be accepted in November by submitting an online form highlighting the member’s leadership background, career goals, and a recommendation/support letter from their manager. The participants will be selected on the basis of merit, potential, and dedication to self-development. The cost of the program is $200 per accepted individual. This fee will cover all costs with the exception of the Annual Conference registration fee and related expenses. You must be registered for the conference to participate in the 1.5-day workshop that is part of this program. 

Online Collaboration Portal

Participants will engage with each other throughout the year via RFMA's SocialLink collaboration portal where they will review learning content and share/discuss topics of interest.

Kickoff Webinar
The program kicks-off in January with an introductory 2-hour web-workshop where the participants will discover how the program will work and introduce themselves to their fellow participants.

Classroom Learning Experience
Participants take part in a 1.5-day classroom-based learning session held in conjunction with the RFMA Annual Conference in March. The class will provide a deep-dive into the core leadership content and also serve to begin building the relationships between the participants. Teams will be formed that will continue to work together on projects throughout the year.

Developmental Assessments
Participants will take a number of developmental assessments throughout the year to help them learn more about themselves and how they approach leadership. The assessments will serve to paint a picture of who they are and provide developmental paths to increase their leadership capabilities.

Web-Workshops
Web-workshops (1.5 hour) will be held every other month throughout the remainder of the year to build upon the learning. They will cover the important themes in leadership development to provide a well-rounded education of advanced content.

Coaching
Each participant will have the opportunity to take advantage of a personal leadership coaching session where they will meet by phone with the program facilitator to discuss their leadership style and opportunities for developmental growth.

Graduation
After completing the program, the participants will be recognized during the General Session at the following year’s Annual Conference.
