ASPIRE Leadership Academy

Advancing the Skills, Passion, Impact & Resiliency of Emerging leaders

The Connecticut Bankers Association’s ASPIRE Leadership Academy is designed to develop and enhance the leadership skills of highly motivated new and emerging leaders.  The program focuses on training those enrolled to better understand their teams and the soft skills required to effectively lead those teams.  Over a period of 12 months, students will meet for 10 full-day sessions.  Students in the program will be able to carry new knowledge and skills back to their bank after each session that they can put into practice immediately and begin implementing solutions.  This long-term learning model allows students to learn and practice simultaneously and return to class each month to discuss the results of applying their newly acquired skills.  Students will also leave the program with an established network of future bank leaders from across the state.
