This unique program is grounded in leadership development best practices and aims for students to leave the class taking ownership of their company’s mission and bottom line, having greater confidence in decision making, and with new skills in identifying and facilitating solutions within their company. In addition, they will develop a network of peer advisors to engage with as they grow and advance in their career.


  • The program fee is $1,300, which includes all sessions, materials, dinner at each session, and a ticket to the Green Industry Awards Celebration where each successful participant will receive a certificate of completion.
  • MNLA will only accept a limited number of participants into each program.
  • Successful candidates will journey together for one year, meeting 10 times between February and December.
  • Sessions take place from 3:00 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. Supper will be served during all meetings.
  • In addition to class preparation and participation, each candidate ultimately produces a work outcome for their business. The goal is that their project will improve the company that sent them to the Institute.
