The Institute for Emerging Leaders (IEL) is designed to equip developing leaders with the character, competence and community connections needed to lead effectively. IEL is designed to be a life-changing experience for the participants and an opportunity to help create a community of leaders who have a shared vocabulary and common commitment to making life better for all in their city, state and beyond.
IEL is an intensive learning experience offered over the course of three two-day experiences in a three month period. The classes are limited to 25-30 participants and will include a select group of current and future leaders. The tailored learning experience guides participants through a curriculum designed specifically for IEL and includes topics such as: building a personal brand, coaching, communication, culture, executive time management, generational differences, leadership and values-based decision making. In addition to addressing the competencies needed to lead effectively, the program also includes a strong emphasis on character development.
IEL is led by qualified faculty with an emphasis on facilitating courses designed for developing leaders. Each course day is enhanced by including a leader and subject matter expert from the community as a guest presenter. In addition, IEL is guided strongly by an Advisory Council filled with Executive Leaders who have a passion for investing in future generations.
In 2019 there will be a spring and fall class. The spring class will be held: March 26-27, April 23-24, May 21-22 and the Fall Class will be held: September 17-18, October 15-16, November 5-6.
At the heart of IEL are partnerships with organizations. The types of organizations with whom we are seeking to build a lasting relationship are nonprofits, companies and governmental agencies that have a proven track record of investing in their people and communities.
Organizations are asked to commit to sending a minimum of two participants per class (with a maximum of three). We believe participants are better able to integrate what they have learned when the experience is shared with a colleague. Due to size, organizations with 50 or fewer employees will have the option to send an individual.
