The program is being developed by NRHA, Ball State University, STIHL Inc. and a consortium of independent retailers, including Aubuchon Hardware, Buchheit, Friedman's Home Improvement, Foxworth-Galbraith, Jerry's Home Improvement, Sunshine Ace Hardware and Wilco Farm Stores. The program, which will be delivered online, is designed to train next-generation leaders by providing a high-quality, flexible introductory course on key concepts of leadership and personal development. Topics will include personal assessments, leadership vision and values, problem-solving, communication skills, talent development and team building. The pilot course is scheduled to launch in early April. Each of the eight modules will be covered in two-week periods and will be administered online using Ball State's Learning Management System. The culmination of the program will be the NRHA/STIHL Foundations of Leadership Annual Conference, which is scheduled for Aug. 1-3 in Indianapolis. The conference will feature presentations from leadership experts at Ball State University and industry-focused panel discussions. Graduates of the Foundations of Leadership Program, the NRHA Retail Management Certification Program and all former Young Retailer of the Year honorees are welcome to attend for free.
