Towson, Md. (June 6, 2023) – Towson University announced that Kimber M. Lee, MBA, Director of Human Resources University of Maryland School of Social Work, completed the Next Level Leaders Program, a signature program of the Dr. Nancy Grasmick Leadership Institute. The Dr. Nancy Grasmick Leadership Institute honored the twenty-two participants who completed this program on Tuesday, June 6th, 2023 at Towson University. This was the second cohort of the leadership program and applications will open up for the next cohort later this week. Organizations are encouraged to nominate employees to participate in this transformational program.
The Next Level Leaders signature program is a results-driven experience, where managers become leaders, moving from tactical tasks to big-picture visioning and execution. This innovative, cohort-based program is for individuals from across sectors that have the capacity and determination to ascend within their organizations. Participants discover self-exploration, uncover intergenerational workplace motivators, practice intentional influencing through various leadership styles, forge team collective leadership to drive goals forward, and harness strategies and hands-on application to foster employee engagement. We welcomed the inaugural cohort in October 2021, which included 24 leaders from 20 organizations from across the region.
We are immensely thankful for The Whiting-Turner Contracting Company's generous support to the Dr. Nancy Grasmick Leadership Institute, allowing the Institute to propel leaders in the region through the Next Level Leaders Signature Program. This tremendous support has provided access to the next generation of leaders, as well as supporting retention, engagement and culture that will keep talent in the region and advance our region.
“We are delighted to participate in and support the Next Level Leaders program at the TU Nancy Grasmick Leadership Institute," said Lauren N. Bennett, Vice President, Community Impact at The Whiting-Turner Contracting Company. "There is no better role model for humble yet highly effective leadership than Dr. Grasmick herself. The fact that this cohort and many others to follow will benefit from her wisdom makes me very optimistic about the future of our community."
The program is open to mid-level leaders committed to expanding the impact they contribute to their organizations and communities.
