Emergence Leadership Course Refreshed for 2013

February 21, 2013, Muncie, IN – East Central Indiana’s leadership academy, LEAD-ECI, is now accepting applications for the organization’s core program; Emergence: Personal Foundations of Effective Leadership.  Having offered this program since 2007, LEAD-ECI will present the next Emergence workshop experience with a newly refreshed schedule, maximizing the program’s highly interactive format. This will be the eleventh class to participate in Emergence and with its conclusion more than 300 individuals will have graduated from the program.

Emergence: Personal Foundations of Effective Leadership is an eight-week interactive leadership training program that seeks to develop and enhance the individual leadership abilities of both emerging and experienced leaders. Participants receive over 30 hours of professional training on leadership styles, consensus building, developing teams, conflict management, communicating with confidence, building trust, civic engagement, and developing personal mission.

One participant from a recent class had this to say about their experience, “This was an amazing experience. I can’t say how grateful I am to have been a part of Emergence, and to have met the people I met. I learned a lot about myself as a leader, my community, and what I can do to better make a difference. I’m not one who”s needed encouragement to be involved, but this course rejuvenated and reeducated me on how to best use my talents. Awesome, awesome experience.”

Emergence is held once a week for eight consecutive weeks from April 2nd through May 22nd, 2013. The program begins with a day-long session where participants learn about various learning and leadership styles including insight into their own personal style. Weeks later, Emergence concludes with a half-day session in which participants develop personal leadership action plans and build a strategy for applying what they’ve learned throughout the course. The six, three-hour evening sessions in the middle, focus on specific leadership skills valuable in any environment.

The registration deadline for Emergence is March 22nd. To learn more about this program or to register online, visit www.leadeci.org. If you have any questions, please contact us at sgriffin@leadeci.org or 765-748-0403.
