The Emerging Leaders professional development program is designed to help aspiring and emerging nonprofit leaders develop the leadership capabilities, management skills and confidence to advance their professional contribution and accelerate their careers in the nonprofit sector.
Program Structure and Content
The program is intended to yield tangible, near-term value to participants (and their employers) and support their longer-term leadership development. It employs experiential learning and outside experts and speakers to weave the following learning tracks together:
Hard Nonprofit Skills & Management Training
Individualized Leadership-in-Action “Stretch” Projects
Leadership Competencies – e.g., Self-awareness, Team Dynamics
Mentoring – Periodic Conversations With a Nonprofit Leader
Expert Panels and Guest Speakers, Including Executive Directors
Facilitated Peer Support
The program is designed to accommodate those with full-time jobs, but it demands employer cooperation (and some full weekdays) as well. The program runs for a total of 8 full-day, monthly sessions from June 2013-February 2014 (skipping August). The Majority of sessions are on weekdays.
