Each selected fellow will be invited to an orientation meeting on August 14 at UMass Boston, room TBD from 5:30-7:30PM. At this time fellows will meet other participants and also receive program materials.
In the September week, fellows meet several of the most prominent leaders from the region who relate their own leadership experiences and challenges. They also are introduced to the essential skills needed to become collaborative leaders. These skills will be further developed throughout the program. In addition, they form teams that will work on important economic and civic issues for the next several months.
The September 2013 introductory seminar is scheduled for September 9 through 13 at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. The program day starts at 8:15 a.m. and ends at 5:00 p.m. Topics covered include: Leadership Models and Qualities, Objectivity, Effective Delegation, Conflict Resolution, and Adaptive and Inclusive Leadership.
Monthly forums are held on the third Thursday of every month*, beginning in October. The full schedule of the September 2013-14 cohort forum dates is listed below. At these forums, current leaders will again speak on leadership topics. Each forum also includes additional skill development and provides opportunities for team meetings. The program day starts at 8:15 a.m. and ends at 5:00 p.m. These forums are at partner locations throughout greater Boston.
In addition to the core program, we offer several elective events. These are not required to successfully complete the program, but they have proven valuable to past participants. We also offer special sessions that are open to both the current Fellows and alumni. There will also be assorted networking opportunities outside of the core program.
