The Emerging Leaders Program Invites You to Invest in Your Future Leaders

January 23, 2013

The UMass Boston Center for Collaborative Leadership is recruiting for the 2014 cohort of the Emerging Leaders Program (ELP). The Program selects a diverse group of high potential rising leaders from the corporate, nonprofit and public sectors to participate in a 9-month long leadership development program consisting of 90 hours of “in class” sessions.

The Program starts in September 2013 with a week-long leadership immersion seminar. Subsequent meetings are on the third Thursday of each month through April 2014, with an additional session in June for the team project presentation.

The Program has four major components:

›› Leadership skill sessions facilitated by subject matter experts from the UMass Boston College of Management and other leading institutions

›› Dialogue with Greater Boston’s current leaders on leadership lessons

›› Reflection on one’s personal leadership style

›› Teamwork— teams working collaboratively on real projects affecting the Greater Boston region

The Emerging Leaders Program stresses the collaborative leadership model, in which leaders share resources, networks, intelligence, perspectives, and assets to achieve common goals.  At its conclusion, Fellows have honed their individual leadership skills in several areas, including objectivity, change management, networking, communication, conflict resolution, entrepreneurship, strategic planning and teamwork. 

Invest in your future leaders. To nominate an emerging leader from your organization, please go to our on-line form, provide the required information, and hit submit. Once we receive the nomination, your nominee will be sent an email with an invitation to apply to the program. The nomination deadline is March 20, 2013.
