What Leadership Means

“We need great leaders in every aspect of our community. No matter what role you’re in, where you work or who you’re serving, you have the opportunity to  really make an impact — not just on the people you’re serving, but also the people around you.”

– Cody Foster, co-founder of Advisors Excel and supporter of Topeka’s Strategic Leadership Academy

Building leadership potential in workplaces and community spaces

The Strategic Leadership Academy helps adult minorities of color gain insight into how the best business and community leaders think. As participants develop their capacity for self-awareness and strategic thinking, they hone the skills necessary to lead at higher levels in their careers and community organizations.

What’s more, every graduate of the Strategic Leadership Academy agrees to serve on the board of a community organization — and help build more vibrant communities.

Go. Grow. Engage.

  • Improve your leadership skills
  • Learn how an organization’s “system” really works
  • Expand your network
  • Become an effective community leader

  • Run for political office
