What is the Leadership Institute?
The LeadingAge Texas Leadership Institute is a
year-long program designed for emerging leaders in aging services.
Institute Fellows actively explore best practices of leaders, analyze
their own leadership, discuss learning and problem-solving styles, and
generate a foundation of knowledge that they can draw from throughout
Designed to challenge, inspire, and motivate, the program format encourages critical thought and analysis and creates an engaging learning environment that enhances the capacities of leaders at all levels.

In addition to cultivating leadership skills, Fellows build meaningful, lasting relationships that provide guidance and support over a lifetime of leadership. Interactive, small-group discussions are enriched by Fellows’ diverse backgrounds and perspectives and provide a vehicle for ongoing structured dialogue and deliberation.
The program emphasizes three core principles:
- Transformational Leadership: Leadership that elevates the aspirations and performance of organizations – it creates valuable and positive change in the followers with the goal of developing those followers into leaders
- Person-Centeredness: a focus on the individual person, including staff and residents
- Innovation: Ideas and technology drive the mission of long-term care and aging services into the future, meeting the needs of those we serve in new and exciting ways as the consumer population shifts
