Loyola launches Leadership Essentials 2023
ASPIRE: Loyola University Maryland’s Center for Continuing Education kicks off the 16th year of Leadership Essentials, a six-month leadership development program for young professionals in the Baltimore area.
“We are excited about the launch of Leadership Essentials 2023. Participants will learn practical leadership skills, gain wisdom from seasoned coaches, and bring value to their organizations and careers,” said Katherine Keefe, who joined Loyola this year to serve as the program consultant.
Keefe brings a wealth of experience in operations, fundraising, financial management, and human resources.
“We are confident that Katherine will build upon the success of Leadership Essentials that was developed and led by Lori Fuchs for the last 10 years,” said Scott Moores, director of Executive Education at Loyola University Maryland.
Offered in collaboration with Leadership Howard County, Leadership Essentials 2023 is a skills-based program that consists of three components: in-person and virtual sessions led by professional facilitators, one-on-one coaching sessions, and a team-based community impact project to support a local nonprofit.
A cohort of approximately 25 individuals will be selected to participate through a competitive application process. Participants represent a cross section of the community from business, government, education, health care, and nonprofit organizations. The program will run from December 2022 through June 2023.
The application deadline for participants, community impact projects, and coaches is Oct. 10. For more information, please visit Loyola.edu/leadership-essentials or contact Keefe at Kkeefe@loyola.edu.
