COO Leadership Cohort


This leadership program has been designed exclusively for fraternal Chief Operating Officers, Assistant Executive Directors.... #2s from across the country who want to become more effective communicators, excellent role models, strategic planners and the kind of leaders who can develop team members to be that too. Youíll leave this program with:

  • An increased understanding of how you communicate, handle conflict (or avoid it!), and how to create the reputation you deserve.
  • Tools developed by and for fraternal leaders that allow staff to work together more easily
  • New critical thinking and problem solving skills that you can share
  • Coaching skills to use when managing direct reports
  • Confidence in being able to have tough conversations
  • Strengthened relationships with your fellow COOs

Program Format

The first COO cohort (5-10 individuals) will kick off at the November 28 FEA Midyear Meeting prior to the AFA Annual Meeting in Indianapolis.The intention of the November gathering is to meet each other, discuss your business challenge and begin discussing your specific leadership style. The cohort will then meet each month in person or virtually for two hours from December to April. The purpose of these meetings is to learn a new skill, practice it and gain feedback. The group will then reconvene at the May 2019 FEA Annual Meeting for an end-of-program celebration and presentation on the progress you made on your business challenge.

What is going to be asked of me?

  • Bring a real business problem that you're willing to work on with your peers
  • Complete your commitments between sessions
  • Attend six of the seven sessions and read one book every three months
  • Be really honest about your strengths and where you need to grow


The investment for this cohort is $900.
