Emerging Leaders Institute (ELI) is an opportunity for Network members who are new to leadership and management or have a desire to move into a leadership role to learn more about their own personal work style, strengths and weaknesses, and how to best apply their skills in their career. ELI participants will network and learn from each other, guest speakers, and Network leaders while setting career goals and creating a plan to achieve those goals.
The Emerging Leader Institute will be held on June 14, 2017 in New York, NY at Fordham University. Purchase your $50.00 ticket, today!
Who should come to ELI?
Network members who are new and emerging leaders and have an interest in strengthening their leadership and management skills.
ELI is designed to offer emerging leaders opportunities to explore their leadership potential and abilities through interactive learning and practical skill building.
ELI reflects the belief that many of the skills and attributes needed for personal and professional success are acquired outside of or complement knowledge gained within the traditional classroom and/or professional setting.
ELI provides opportunities to explore a number of areas including public speaking, goal setting, organizational skills, and networking through experiential exercises as well as reflective analysis.
