Course description

Emerging Leaders Academy

Research shows that most critical step in long-term career advancement begins at the very first rung of the ladder or at one’s first promotion into leadership. Yet, the leadership development resources for this level of employee are often minimal and fail to provide adequate resources that help them navigate leadership for the first time. Emerging Leaders Academy (ELA) is specifically designed for new and emerging high-potential leaders; to equip them with the skills, support, and network to thrive in leadership throughout their careers.

Emerging Leaders Academy is a 6-month course. Participants meet twice a month for 3 hours. The class meetings feature peer-networking, leadership development, and individual and group coaching. Each participant creates a Leadership Development Action Plan (LDAP) in conjunction with course faculty and their direct supervisor to measure individual success and organizational return on investment over the duration of the 6-month course.

Training content

The course is organized in themes that were determined based on our research at The Center for Leadership Excellence and the existing body of research regarding new and emerging leaders. Educational content, resources, activities and homework are organized in alignment with the theme.  In the pages that follow, we outline the themes and some of the activities/homework.  Course material is subject to change based on current events and participant needs.
