Emerging Leadership Alliance seeks candidates
The Emerging Leaders Alliance invites rising leaders to take part in its 2012 Live Leadership Training program coming this fall. Using a novel blended learning approach, the program includes online preparatory material, two-and-a-half-day in-person training sessions, follow-on networking and support. The curriculum encompasses key leadership functions, including critical thinking and change management, leveraging strengths for effective team operation, leadership style assessment and growth actions, and case studies and exercises to practice concepts and relate theory to application.
The workshop will take place 11-13 September in Reston, VA. There is no registration fee to attend; however, travel expenses and arrangements are the responsibility of the participant. View the draft agenda and participant criteria/guidelines.
Please complete the application form by 29 June 2012 along with a Letter of Recommendation. Your Letter of Recommendation should be completed by your direct manager and include a statement of agreement to cover your travel costs. Seven SEG members will be selected to attend. Successful applicants will be notified by 18 July 2012. If you have any questions, contact ELA@seg.org.
