The Nebraska Society of CPAs Leadership Academy is a one-year leadership development program designed to build authentic, emotionally intelligent leaders who understand how to build high-performing teams, manage conflict, and inspire others to deliver results.

Participants in 2021-2022 can choose whether they want to attend in-person or online, but we are asking participants to choose only one format for all sessions. Class introduction and graduation occur each year during the Society's Annual Meeting.

Class size is limited to 25 individuals in order to provide a meaningful experience using an active-learning model.


Participants should work in the field of accounting.

Designed For

Both CPAs and high-potential non-CPA professionals who work under the direction of a CPA are encouraged to participate in the Leadership Academy.


The Nebraska Society of CPAs Leadership Academy establishes a valuable network of leaders who are preparing to take on greater responsibilities within their organizations. Participants will emerge with enhanced leadership, communications, and organizational skills.




Our program uses an active-learning case study model. This highly engaging approach lets you directly apply program content to relevant, personalized workplace opportunities and challenges. Our goal is to build long-term sustainable leadership behaviors.

We do not buy off-the-shelf content regurgitated by a trainer. All NESCPA Leadership Academy program content is custom-created and is based on empirically derived evidence from executive leadership and talent management conferences, scholarly/peer-reviewed journals, best practices identified by the Center of Creative Leadership, and other relevant high-profile institutions of leadership research and practice. 

We take a longitudinal approach to leadership development as opposed to bootcamp-style programs that have minimal impact on long-term behavioral leadership improvement. The NESCPA Leadership Academy is about transformational change.

A talent assessment is used to help participants develop their authentic selves (as one size does NOT fit all).

Participants attend the program as part of a cohort to help facilitate building their network and to foster the application of key learnings to practical organizational challenges.
