PROGRAM STRUCTURE

Each year we select a cohort of 24 military spouses, veterans, and currently serving military who demonstrate a commitment to their own personal development and the community they live in. Throughout that year we come together to progress from internal reflection to external action. Ultimately, this group of Mission43 leaders is accountable to each other beyond the one-year program.

PHASE I: Lead Yourself First SEMINAR

This two-day workshop is led by Mike Erwin, CEO of the Character & Leadership Center and author of Lead Yourself First, and explores the counterintuitive notion that one of the most impactful actions a leader can take is to create time for solitude. This is exceptionally timely because, courtesy of technology, people are more distracted than ever. We’ll discuss strategies to fortify character and enhance clarity, creativity, emotional balance, and moral courage.

Mike Erwin helps us develop the foundation that will carry us through the rest of the M43 Leadership Program.

  • Day 1: Lead Yourself First // Day 2: Leadership is a Relationship

  • Dates: Thursday May 2 - Friday May 3, 2019

  • Location: Boise, Idaho

PHASE II: Wilderness Immersion

Throw your pack on because we are heading into the Idaho backcountry. We’ll take the concepts discussed in Phase I and merge them with a physical immersion that is both beautiful and challenging. This shared experience helps the leadership cohort grow as a group while taking the time to “Lead Yourself First” without distraction. Be prepared to hike 5-7 miles per day.

  • Dates: Thursday August 29 - Sunday September 1, 2019

  • Location: Sawtooth Wilderness Area

TW 43 Leadership Program (1).png

PHASE III: Educational & Inspirational SPEAKERS

We’ll meet monthly as we build the network and have direct discussions with key leaders from different segments of the Idaho economy. It’s also where previous M43 Leadership Program graduates are encouraged to attend and stay engaged.

  • Dates: Once a month (2-3 hours); October 24, November 21, December 19, January 23, February 20, March 19

  • Location: Boise, Idaho

PHASE IV: Leadership in Action

The leadership class is split into four groups to each develop a community impact project in partnership with a local non-profit organization. The groups decide the non-profit, coordinate and plan the day, and then we activate the larger Mission43 community to come out and volunteer in support.

  • Timeframe: January - May. Community impact projects meetings and dates are set by the individual groups.

  • Location: Throughout Idaho

 
 

COMMITMENT

This program is a year-long journey with 23 other incredible leaders from the Mission43 community. It will require you to be able to break away from your day-to-day life to take part in the different phases of the program (be sure to check the dates for the upcoming year). We believe leader development is important enough that we have invested and are committed to creating a life-changing and world-class experience for those who are selected.

Frequently asked questions

What is the selection process?

  • Applications are due by April 15 each year. A selection committee from the Mission43 leadership team will review and select based on past experience and future potential.

How much is the program?

  • This program is funded by the J.A. and Kathryn Albertson Family Foundation and is free to the military spouses and veterans who are selected. However, there is no such thing as a free lunch. Participants are expected to attend all phases and be active in participating and supporting the Mission43 community.
