Aspire

Leadership is an action not a position.

ASPIRE is a learning experience for aspiring leaders. Beginning in September, this four-monthlong program combines online and in-person learning sessions and concludes in December. The program will develop individual contributors who do not currently manage others to cultivate a leadership mindset. The learning experience is to help participants learn to lead from where they are.
 

Who Can Participate?

Any full-time employee who is not in a supervisory role is eligible to participate.

Please note, applicants must be able to commit to all the dates listed in the program guide. Review the Application and Program Guide, to ensure your commitment before applying. Eligible participants should be in good standing in terms of performance with no disciplinary issues in the last six months.

When is the deadline to apply?

The deadline is Aug. 16 by 5 p.m. Review the Application and Program Guide, check the dates against your and your supervisor's schedule. If you are confident you are able to participate, complete the program guide and email it training@ohr.gatech.edu or send it to Mailstop: 0207.

We will notify participants by August 30. For more information, please training@ohr.gatech.edu

How should I discuss this with my manager?

Your supervisor will need to indicate they agree to your commitment to participate and complete the entire learning experience. Additionally, if you are accepted to the program, your supervisor is required to attend the kick-off session on September 9. Check out the Convince Your Managers flyer that lists reasons to help them decide to agree to your participation.

Is the program free?

There are no costs for each accepted participant. However, because space will be limited if a participant does not complete the program, then their department will be charged $750.
