Registration open for Emerging Leaders' Summit

Registration is open for the 2022 Emerging Leaders' Summit, and this year's theme is leading multigenerations. The Emerging Leaders' Summit is designed for early to mid-career managers with a desire for leadership growth and advancing within the assessment profession.



Leading multigenerations has its challenges. When stereotypes are identified and addressed, leaders can embrace the diversity that multigenerations of employees bring to the workplace. In doing so, leaders are able to go from managing a group of multiple generation individuals to building and leading a diverse and high-performing team.


The program will be presented in three parts: two webinars (July 28 and Aug. 10), and a third session on Aug. 31 at the IAAO Annual Conference in Boston. The final session will be recorded for those unable to attend.


The conference session, Mind the Gap! How to Navigate Intergenerational Communication Gaps in the Workplace, will be taught by Chesney Leafblad, CIAO-Master, Chief Deputy Assessor for Warren Township in Lake County, Illinois; and Jessica McNeil, RES, an Appraiser II for the Polk County, Iowa, Assessor’s Office. Course fees are $295 for IAAO members and $395 for nonmembers and includes the text “Gentelligence: The Revolutionary Approach to Leading an intergenerational Workforce.” Registration is open through June 30.



New IAAO self-study course - GROW into Coaching

The first self-study course in Emerging Leaders’ curriculum has been released. Old command and control leadership methods no longer service employees or organizational growth. According to the Harvard Business Review, managers who practice a coaching leadership style ask questions instead of providing answers, support employees instead of criticizing them, and help enable employee development through empowerment.

Participants in this self-paced program focus on leading through coaching. The GROW Coaching Model and a growth mindset are emphasized.

Registrants gain access to three eLearning modules: engaging activities, supplementary materials, and a copy of the book “Coaching for Performance” by Sir John Whitmore, referenced throughout the course.


The program cost is $249 for IAAO members and $329 for nonmembers.
