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. Each summer a group of “Fellows” is chosen for a ten-month program involving a weeklong seminar, followed by monthly meetings and team projects. At its conclusion, Fellows have honed their individual leadership skills in several areas, including networking, communication, conflict resolution, entrepreneurship, media relations and teamwork. The program stresses the collaborative leadership model, in which leaders share resources, networks, intelligence, perspectives, and assets to achieve common goals. Fellows also will increase their knowledge of the cultural framework that determines how Greater Boston and other major urban areas function.
