OUR History

This program was formed by forward-looking leaders from dozens of local private, public and non profit organizations at Michigan's Great Southwest Strategic Leadership Council.

After 4 years of success and 120 graduates under this model, the Leadership Accelerator was moved to Kinexus Group in 2019 to best set the program up for success in the future.

Now, four key organizations serve as the driving force for the Leadership Accelerator: Kinexus Group, Spectrum Health Lakeland, The United Way of Southwest Michigan, and The Strategic Leadership Council.
