Emerging Leaders


Ensuring that future leaders have the skills they will need to face unexpected challenges and address complex problems has never been so crucial. Our Emerging Leaders Academy targets promising, non-supervisory/non-managerial staff to support skills development around leadership, interpersonal communication, relationship-building, and navigating change. Participants gain skills that can be applied immediately to increase their effectiveness while organizations gain a more prepared and engaged talent pool to draw from for the future.

With COVID-19 continuing to affect health directives as well as individuals' needs, we will be offering online cohorts for spring 2021. Both cohorts will run from late February to early June, with each group meeting for nine class days. Additionally, each class will maintain the hallmarks of what you know and expect from Public Management Center programs: interactive classes that support individual development while building peer networks.
