Description

The Emerging Leaders Seminar is a leadership development workshop specifically designed for young professionals that connects real-life leadership situations with a self-assessment of one’s leadership competencies across four dimensions (knowledge, values, ability, and behavior), all while using the principles of emotional intelligence as a foundation.  After completing a nationally-normed assessment tool, participants engage in reflection, case study discussions, and small group activities as they examine the critical connection between a leader’s emotions and the impact this has on their developing leadership style.  Although participants will complete a self-assessment of 60 leadership competencies across 8 dimensions, the workshop specifically expands on the personal behavior, communication, civic responsibility, and strategic planning leadership dimensions.  After completing the program – and with an intentional focus on self, others, and context – participants will be better prepared to identify, diagnose, and navigate the complexities of leadership.

Prior to the workshop, participants will complete a Leadership Competencies self-assessments which will be sent after checkout

There are 8 different assessments – each identified by a colorful box – and each assessment should only take 2-3 minutes to complete.  Participants need to bring a printed or downloaded copy of each results page to the workshop.

What You'll Learn
  1. Participants will learn techniques on how to manage leadership situations, particularly as they relate to interacting with others, understanding their own strengths and weaknesses, and becoming aware of the context surrounding leadership challenges.
  2. Through the completion of an online self-assessment of 60 leadership competencies, participants will identify specific areas of focus for their personal leadership development.
  3. This model of leadership encourages leaders to fully understand how their emotions impact their ability to be effective leaders in both professional and persona settings.
  4. Participants will learn how to recognize the feelings of others, and use this perspective to manage their relationships in a leadership environment.
