AD, Wayne, Penn., a member-owned organization, announced the launch of the Center for Independent Distributor Leadership, a development program for distribution leaders.
AD created the curricula in collaboration with instructors from top universities, leadership coaches and independent distribution thought leaders. This group of industry experts will teach courses within the three certification pathways:
- Leadership Experience
- Distributor Sales Leader
- Distributor Operations Leader
“We listened to our owner-member community and found that many can benefit from organized training programs to prepare the next generation to lead,” said Marty McLaughlin, Chief Marketing Officer for AD and co-founder of the CIDL. “The CIDL will give AD members structured education pathways in leadership, sales and operations for up-and-coming leaders to gain core competencies for their future.”
