Emergence: Personal Foundations of Effective Leadership is our core leadership program. It is an eight-week highly interactive and engaging training opportunity ideal for emerging or experienced leaders seeking to enhance their leadership capabilities. At the end of the program, participants can expect to be better equipped to lead the change they want to see in the businesses, not-for-profits, civic groups, and communities they represent.
Participants can expect to take away a better understanding of their own personal leadership style as well as the knowledge, confidence, and tools to more effectively lead others.
If you think Emergence is just about sitting around and listening to lectures, think again. Program sessions are designed to be interactive, participatory, thought-provoking, and applicable. Each week, a specific leadership topic will be the focus of the session and participants will walk away with significant insight related to these leadership fundamentals and will have a better personal understanding of how they can apply them.
Each of the eight sessions of Emergence provide actionable insights one can use to better understand their particular leadership style and to enhance their leadership capabilities. Session topics include:
- Learning styles
- Leadership styles
- Effective communication
- Consensus building
- Conflict management
- Building trust
- Civic leadership
- Personal mission
