LBA Leadership School

LBA Leadership Schools, “Growing Our Next Generation of Leaders”, meet monthly for five months and complete online course work and assigned readings in between meetings. Class size is limited, giving attendees the opportunity for one-on-one time with the instructors and networking with other bankers in the course. Some of LBA’s most respected instructors will conduct half day sessions on technical banking issues.

SSA Consultants will deliver individual and team development activities to the participants, including:
  • The month prior to onsite training, initial assessments using the Hogan Leadership Forecast Series which includes the Potential, Challenge, Values, & Coaching Reports
  • Provide participants with one-on-one coaching to discuss individual results and implications to individual and team performance and career development
  • During the months of onsite training, facilitate leadership development sessions leveraging the Hogan results and SSA’s 40 years of leadership development experience
  • Administer iCapstone online leadership development modules that directly support the facilitated sessions and overall learning objectives of the program.

Who Should Attend

Current and future bank leaders from all areas of the bank.

What Former Students Have to Say...

“I feel like we all learned a lot of things from each other, whether someone has been in banking for 2 years or for 20 plus years. Since being in the leadership program, I have made it a point to listen more and take others opinions to heart before making a decision. This has helped me lots. I have gained more trust from my staff by doing this.” - 2013 Leadership School Graduate

“The LBA Leadership School proved to be a very rewarding experience. My participation allowed me to look closely at my personality and managerial style and for ways to enhance or improve my interaction with management and employees. The class encouraged me to empower and influence those around me in order to reach goals and strive for success.” - 2013 Leadership School Graduate

I can’t say enough good things about this opportunity! - 2016 Leadership School Graduate
