Leadership Academy participants will have the opportunity to develop, enhance, and hone their leadership skills and competencies. The program will allow future leaders to experience multiple facets of leadership and define their leadership style along the way. Leadership Academy participants will also learn the history, structure, and inner-workings of NAR leadership.

The NAR Leadership Academy program includes eight sessions containing both interactive online and in-person experiences. Sessions will be self-paced and extend over a three-week period. Estimated time per session is three hours or approximately one hour per week (excluding in-person meetings). Participants will also be required to complete a Capstone Project. In addition, special guests will host live online "office hours" to enhance session topics and answer questions. Attendance and participation for the "office hours'" is optional, but recommended. Participants will have also have exclusive access to a library of 600+ micro-videos featuring over 40 national recognized leaders in the industry. See the 2021 Sessions.
