Emerging Leader Training Program

TARGET AUDIENCE

Emerging leaders whose span of influence and impact is growing in a meaningful way and can benefit from learning leadership best practices and tools through a vetted curriculum, expanding their peer network, and learning about the operations of other utilities.


Experience Overview

The Emerging Leader Training program is a multi-month experience comprised of in-person and virtual interactions. The program operates on a geographical cohort model, with several utilities filling a class of 15-20 people. We use Wiley’s Work of Leaders as a framework for a curriculum that moves through four modules (discovering self, crafting a vision, building alignment, championing execution) and incorporates a variety of interactions including peer-to-peer networking, speakers, and tours.
