Leadership of a business or a community need not be left to chance. That’s what underlies the UMass Boston Emerging Leaders Program. The Emerging Leaders Program discovers and empowers leaders for tomorrow—skillful and accomplished leaders from all sectors of our community who will be moving into major leadership positions in their organizations.
Strengthening Capacities for Leadership
The Emerging Leaders Program is an executive training program for professionals in the Greater Boston area. In the program participants will enhance their individual leadership skills and learn how to work effectively with other leaders toward specific goals. 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 2014 with a week-long leadership immersion seminar. Subsequent meetings are on the third Thursday of each month through April, with an additional session in June for the team project presentation. For exact dates, please see our program overview.
The Program has four major components:
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.
