Kimberly Hoffman will join the industry association’s prestigious Leadership Advancement & Development (LEAD) Program, which assembles, educates and empowers emergent and aspiring leaders from all segments and sub-sectors of the overall seniors housing industry.

Discovery Senior Living (“Discovery”) has announced that Kimberly Hoffman will be part of the Argentum Leadership Advancement & Development (LEAD) Program cohort after their nominations were chosen by the Program’s Steering Committee.

Hoffman was nominated by top-ranking Discovery executives to take part in the selective, six-month educational and networking cooperative, which is presented by seniors housing industry association Argentum. The LEAD program is designed to provide emerging leaders a unique skill-building and development curriculum with firsthand executive insights, leadership coaching clinics, informative salon sessions, a team-based industry-advancing Capstone project, and the opportunity to forge beneficial relationships with other emerging leaders in the seniors housing space.

In being accepted into this year’s Argentum LEAD Program, Hoffman will follow in the path of three other Discovery leaders who have participated in the cohort since it launched in 2020. The 2023 cohort will first assemble in person and kick off program-sponsored activities at the Argentum Senior Living Executive Conference, May 8-10 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

“I am truly honored to have been selected for the 2023 Argentum LEAD Program,” said Hoffman. “As someone who is an advocate for continuous professional development, I am looking forward to the robust learning experience, particularly the education and conversations related to emotional intelligence (EI). As the industry continues to face staffing challenges, equipping community leaders with relevant tools and resources is imperative.     

With headquarters in Southwest Florida, Discovery Senior Living currently owns and operates a national, multi-branded portfolio of more than 110 communities in 19 states.
