The Lived Experience Transformational Leadership Academy—LET(s)Lead is an experiential learning leadership academy offered virtually. This means that you can Zoom into class right from your home, office or wherever you are. Our goal is to advance lived experience leadership across New England. The course is facilitated by a diverse team of national and international faculty and mentors, most of whom identify as people with lived/learned expertise.
I) Weekly Seminar. The course consists of a 2-hour weekly seminar over 10 weeks. The course content includes topics such as developing a personal vision, transformational change, appreciative inquiry and leadership strategy, and change management.
II) Project Development. 5-6 months. Fellows are matched for mentorship with a national or international community, lived experience, and/or sector leader, based on interest area.
