Emerging Leaders


The Emerging Leaders Academy targets promising, non-supervisory/non-managerial staff to help prepare them for leadership roles in their departments and organizations. Participants meet together ten times over five months, with classes designed to help them hone their skills for positions of increasing responsibility while also growing their effectiveness in their current roles. Agencies who invest in sending staff to ELA gain a more prepared and engaged talent pool to draw from for the future, a critical need as many leaders in public service organizations move toward retirement.
