Emerging Leaders

Employers can help develop executive leaders with training on leadership and business skills during the 2012 Emerging Leader program.

Employers can help develop future executive leaders with training on the finer points of leadership and business skills during the 2012 Emerging Leader program at the University of Dayton Center for Leadership and Executive Development.

"I have attended many leadership courses over the years and found the University of Dayton's Emerging Leader Program to be second to none," said Keith Bowman of the Air Force Research Lab. "It is a well organized and presented approach to integrating a comprehensive teaching of business fundamentals with personal management strategies that allow the participant to more effectively lead others. The group projects, classroom exercises, self-assessments and personal friendships forged through the year made the program very worthy and unforgettable."

The next 12-month, 20-session program begins Jan. 18 and is geared toward helping employees chart a path to executive leadership. Sessions include "Mentor Training," "Coaching for Performance," "Leading Change," "Strategic Business Development" and "Leadership Authenticity: 10 Truths."

Presenters include faculty from the University of Dayton's School of Business Administration along with consultants to Fortune 500 companies.

The Emerging Leader program is open to the public and costs $12,000. Participants receive a certificate in leadership and admission to two of the Center's future executive programs.

"The Emerging Leader Program also offers multiple assessments, networking with other high potential leaders, coaching and a formal mentoring program," said Lisa Beutel, director, Center for Leadership and Executive Development. "Emerging Leaders graduate with the skills and confidence needed to be successful at the next level and beyond."

All sessions will be at the 1700 South Patterson Building, formerly the NCR Corp. world headquarters.
