Leadership Applications Academy 2019

Last year, your 2017-18 Vice President of Leadership, Morgan Heath-Powers, launched Leadership Applications Academy - a program designed to equip all DECA members with real-world leadership tools that would help them achieve their goals both in and beyond DECA. Inspired by the personal development and leadership training she was being immersed in as a state officer, she launched the program to share those same lessons and insights with the members of Nevada DECA.

This year, Morgan returns as your State President excited to launch a new and improved Leadership Applications Academy! You can look forward to a revamped curriculum, guest speakers, and much more. The program will take place in the months of November, December, and January over the course of three video call trainings, throughout which Morgan corresponds with members to offer support in the goals they establish. Participants will progress through workshops that allow them to learn more about themselves and their unique personality style, identify opportunities for growth in regards to both their strengths and weaknesses, and set achievable goals to be of greater service in their own communities – from family, to school, to DECA, and beyond. The culmination of the program will be a final capstone call where participating members will have the opportunity to hear from and ask questions of real world business leaders about their careers and the applicability of personal leadership skills in their success. Each member will receive recognition at SCDC and Nevada DECA will offer discounts off of registration fees for the chapters with the most participating members.

Still a bit unsure of what those calls will look like? Join Morgan at 5:30 PM on October 15th for an Instagram Live sneak peak of the program! She’ll explain the calls more in depth, share a leadership insight or two, and open up the floor for questions. Be sure to follow @NVDECA on Instagram to see catch updates on the live video! Remember, Leadership Applications Academy is a program designed for all Nevada DECA members! Whether you’re a first-year Nevada DECA competitor, an ICDC champion, or a senior DECA leader, this program will leave you feeling college and career ready in a way that simply can’t be covered in a role-play.

To reserve your spot in the program, complete the RSVP Google Form and reach out to Morgan with any questions you may have. She looks forward to seeing you in October for the Instagram Live and can’t wait to hit the “Ready, Set, DECA” button with the first call this November! The only question is…are you #ReadyForIt?
