Bring the biggest problem you're wrestling with right now, or the biggest opportunity you want to take advantage of, and we'll tackle it together using an approach that is scientifically proven to produce successful outcomes.

How can you collaborate with other mayors?


Successful leaders understand the powerful advantages of being a member of a peer advisory group when it comes to decision-making.


When you become a member of Skill Academy, you join a community of like-minded mayors who share their skills and knowledge to help one another.


Skill Academy is a place to build new connections, share your knowledge with other mayors and grow.


You are not alone and, because a rising tide lifts all of the boats, together we can make the world a better place. 


Who can help you ask the right questions?

How it Works

#1 Personal Goals

Set goals and track progress along 12 themes of your thriving life.

As we all learn to lead in this “new normal,” best practice sharing has moved from a “nice to have” to a “must have” very quickly.


You’ll be invited to create and document your own Personal Practice across the 12 themes of a thriving life, so that when one of us gets better, we all get better.


Track progress in your personal online Action Journal, sharing with your coach as needed, for added accountability and support.  

#2 Skill Mastery

Measure progress on the skills you choose to master.

Looking to grow your skills? Welcome to the future of training. Go past consuming information and start putting learning into action. 

  • Measure your growth.
  • Learn from other mayors
  • Master leadership skills
  • Focus on personal development
  • Design a lasting legacy
  • Get personalized support

By using the tools to plan, track, measure and evaluate your progress, you'll implement successful plans quickly and accelerate improvements in all areas of your life.

Why Thriving Mayor Skill Academy isn't

"just another Zoom meeting."

1-hour, live, virtual, structured, weekly Skill Classes led by Michael Hubicki, Head Coach. If you want clarity on any particular subject, an actionable plan to implement it, and accountability to see it to fruition, he's your man!

  • Watch a video summary of a best-selling book or your specially curated trainings.

    (15 Minutes)

  • Create an Action Plan to solve a current Challenge

    (5 Minutes)

  • Breakout with 2-3 other mayors to share your Action Plans, get feedback and ensure a successful outcome.

    (40 Minutes)

This invaluable interaction with like-minded mayors is really where the magic happens.

What about results?

Here's what SkillClass attendees have to say...

Lori Parrish 

County Board Member

"I have found the Skill classes to be very beneficial! It combines my love of reading with my desire to learn and grow. Rather than just consuming information from a great professional or personal development book, the Action Class has provided the opportunity for me to identify my goals and create action plans and steps to complete them. The accountability component, the documentation of my goals, and progress towards developing a Personal Practice are a great combination for actual implementation and progress."

Arun Andhavarapu

Global Business Executive

"I found the Skill classes hugely helpful in shifting through a large number of business and leadership development that is floating out on the internet.  I love reading and often struggle to convert those nuggets of insights into concrete repeatable actions with a consistency that creates habits.  I engage in dynamic conversations with other professionals in the Skill classes.  They forced me to prioritize my goals and create action plans - what I should do the next week not three months from now and created a sense of accountability."

Bart Justice

CEO (Axios Solutions)

"Skill classes have revolutionized the way I coach and engage personal and leadership development. The content is great, but the real value comes from the experiences and insights shared by your peers in the breakout sessions, along with actionable to-dos to help you reach your goals.

Michael’s leadership and facilitation of these classes will take your personal growth to a whole new level!"




Skill Class adapts to serve you! At the end of each class we ask these 3 which over 90% of participants respond with a resounding, "Yes!"
