Emerging Leaders Program – applications now open!

Apr 12, 2021 | News & Announcements

The National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA) is launching the National Emerging Leaders Program today to help funeral service professionals develop leadership skills that will serve them well in any setting they may find themselves – their funeral home, their state or national association, their community, and beyond.

The program is open to all licensed funeral professionals, regardless of NFDA membership, from the United States and Canada who are still early in their careers (first-career funeral directors licensed 5-10 years or second-career funeral directors licensed 3-8 years).

The program features a practical and theoretical approach to advanced leadership topics, and the curriculum, which is being developed in partnership with an expert consultant in leadership development, will cover topics such as mentorship, ethical leadership, employee relations, collaborative decision-making, strategic planning, servant leadership, communication skills, small business ownership, and more.

The application window is April 12, 2021 – May 15, 2021.
