Emerging Leaders

We are no longer accepting applications for the 2021-2022 cohort. Participants will be notified the week of August 16, 2021.

The Emerging Leaders Program is a professional development initiative geared toward examining universal principles of leadership with application to the culture of UMB. The program aims to contextualize participants’ leadership experience through a series of interactive and informative sessions. It is designed to build repeatable and transferable knowledge and skills.

Learning Outcomes

Through participation in Emerging Leaders, candidates are expected to:

  • Understand how leadership style and personal attributes shape one's management philosophy and approach.
  • Interact and learn from senior leaders across the University community.
  • Learn practical leadership lessons and techniques to develop into a more effective leader.
  • Develop a professional, supportive, and collaborative relationship with a cohort of colleagues that will serve as a resource and professional network.
  • Assess and examine personal beliefs, styles, and leadership behaviors to increase self-awareness and reduce interaction blind spots.
