Rollins College’s Management and Executive Education Center at the Crummer Graduate School of Business is now offering the Leadership Mastermind Alliance (LMMA) program for its 2015 season. LMMA connects mid to senior-level professionals with one another to develop more effective leaders.

Though in its first year at Rollins, Professor of Communication Rick Bommelje began LMMA eight years ago to strengthen the leaders of Central Florida. It has since attracted a diverse group of professionals whose experience and backgrounds have contributed to their combined influence on another as developing leaders. 

“LMMA is a meeting of the minds,” says Bommelje, who also teaches courses on listening and leadership at Rollins. “Professionals put their knowledge, ideas, and experiences together to create a synergy of thoughts that benefit each member.”

Rollins’ LMMA session will run for a full year. Selected applicants will meet monthly in the Bush Executive Center on the College’s campus for a chance to explore specific challenges in business and to develop customized solutions.

In addition to monthly meetings, participants will keep a topical reading schedule, prepare a presentation on an area of interest, and identify a large goal to achieve within the year.

“My membership in LMMA is one of the best gifts I have ever given myself,” says Becky Nickol, an organizational consultant and Florida licensed mental health counselor. “It has awarded me deep and lasting friendships, focused intention and attention, revolutionary leadership and personal insights, and a strong support group. I leave each meeting with a pearl of wisdom.”

Rollins’ Management and Executive Education Center will select candidates from diverse industries and backgrounds who demonstrate dedication to ongoing leadership growth. Applications will be accepted until April 1 and the selection of the candidates will be complete on April 8. Tuition is $2,950.
