Emerging Leadership Academy with Mission Capital

Strong leaders are at the heart of community problem solving. Our community needs leaders who are prepared and equipped to create lasting social change.

The Emerging Leadership Academy is a dynamic program for the next generation of nonprofit leaders in Central Texas. Participants will develop a deeper understanding of their leadership capacity, advance their ability to lead in the nonprofit sector and strengthen their network of nonprofit peers. The Emerging Leadership Academy delivers a full-day of professional development (9am to 6pm on Thursday, May 18, 2017), and includes an individual leadership assessment, take-home resources, the opportunity to participate in a “laser coaching” session with a certified coach, and a closing graduation event. 

Class size is intentionally limited to allow you to engage with and learn from your colleagues in an intimate setting. All attendees must apply. You'll walk away with insight into your leadership style, a cohort of peers, a plan for your leadership growth and a healthy dose of inspiration. 

The Emerging Leadership Academy is for nonprofit professionals who are in the first decade of their nonprofit careers, or those looking to break into the nonprofit sector.  If you are ready to gain insight into your leadership style and how to leverage it strategically, and crave new skills that will help you lead effectively, the Emerging Leadership Academy is for you!
