Executive Leadership Academy



As part of Cable’s commitment to supporting leadership development and growth opportunities throughout each career stage, we developed the Executive Leadership Academy. The Academy offers two courses in the spring and two courses in the fall. When you complete both courses you are awarded a Foundations of 21st Century Leadership certificate and become eligible for the Advanced Leadership Program.

Our fall sessions will be held at Lipscomb University’s College of Leadership and Public Service on…

  • February 22nd from 12:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
  • February 23rd  from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

This Spring’s Cable Executive Leadership Academy features internationally known faculty and local leaders who are experts on individual, organizational and community change.


CABLE 1001: Developing as a Leader: Assessing and Building Leadership Skills

Understanding multiple perspectives of what successful leaders know and do is the foundation for individual assessment and a plan for development. An introduction to collaborative leadership skills helps shape the individual plan. Political savvy and organizational agility skills also addressed.


CABLE 2001: Compelling Vision and Distinctive Voice: Influence and Communication in a Networked World

Successful leaders build coalitions and get results. Key to this is a clear and compelling vision and the ability to influence using age-old theories of persuasion and the new tools of a networked world. Includes individual work on personal and organizational vision and communication.

Classes are held at Lipscomb University Ezell Center in the Andrews Institute for Civic Leadership or at off site experiential settings. Faculty includes local and national leaders and experts in leadership development and leadership communication.
