Leadership Institute at Kellogg School of Management
The third cohort of the AAPD Leadership Institute met for its second session Dec. 8-11, 2011, at the Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University in Evanston, Ill. This is the eighth year of the Leadership Institute series thanks to the generous sponsorship by Ultradent Products, Inc.
Year-two classes included sessions on building strong brands, creating top-notch service organizations, crisis and reputation management, leadership communication and motivation, marketing and value creation, and dispute and conflict management.
"Each time that I leave Kellogg I am bursting with ideas as to how I can serve my community better, how I can serve the Academy better, and how I can transform the vision that I have for my private practice into reality," said participant Dr. Michael Ignelzi Jr. of Greensboro, N.C. "I strongly encourage anyone who is considering applying for the Leadership Institute to go for it - you will enjoy every minute of the experience."
While the third cohort has one year remaining in the program (December 2012), the Foundation will announce soon its plans for applications for the fourth Leadership Institute cohort, which will convene in late 2013. The Academy and Foundation are working out the details with the Kellogg School of Management and plans will be announced in mid 2012.
