Middle Management Academy

August 1, 2021

You need a deep “bench strength” of leadership capacity to address the complexities of treating populations with mental health and substance use challenges. Ensure your bench is never empty by building a culture of leadership in your early middle managers, department supervisors, team leaders and project managers.

Whether you want to invest in your own career development or you’re an organization looking to train and engage your middle management staff, the National Council’s 30-hour virtual or in-person Middle Management Academy brings more than two decades of experience in industry-specific leadership trainings to build strong health care leaders and even stronger organizations.
