Nominations are vital to continuing the tradition of excellence in New Memphis programs. The majority of LDI participants come to us through nominations from business leaders, many of whom are themselves New Memphis alumni. It’s a testament to the power of this program when alumni want other leaders to share this experience. If you are, or someone you know is, an experienced, executive-level leader who would enjoy and benefit from the LDI, please submit a nomination. Contact Jill Turner with any questions.
The highly personalized Leadership Development Intensive provides powerful data and experiences to help you lead. LDI outcomes are numerous; as a result of the program you will:
- Learn how key stakeholders rate your leadership effectiveness and how you compare with C-suite executives.
- Broaden your network of senior executive colleagues.
- Collaborate across the organization to gain critical perspectives, solve complicated problems, create buy in and manage politics.
- Effectively manage complexity to take wise and productive action amidst complex, rapidly changing conditions.
- Develop clear action plans.
Q: Who participates in the LDI?
A: Designed for experienced leaders at the executive level, each class consists of approximately 25 individuals across diverse industries. Many of our more than 1,200 graduates are nominated by other graduates of the LDI program, though self-nominations are always welcome.
Celebrating a Quarter of a Century of LDI
The Leadership Development Intensive (LDI) was created in 1997, and since then we've had more than 1,000 graduates of the program. Those graduates are comprised of capable leaders who feel a deep sense of responsibility and optimism for this city we all love. And we are so excited to continue this work going forward. To ensure the work of New Memphis continues for another 25 years, we are asking LDI alumni to make a donation in honor of this landmark anniversary achieved in 2022. You can make a secure online donation here, or contact Raquel Capocaccia to learn about other giving options.
