The Tri-Cities Young Professionals brings you an exclusive opportunity to learn, implement and practice your leadership skills through the Emerging Leaders Suite. In partnership with Gamar Leadership Group Ltd., this intensive pilot program will help emerging leaders apply innovative and effective leadership skills. 

More than ever before, emerging leaders must learn and deploy core leadership and management skills, develop a broad strategic perspective, take their leadership skills to the next level and expand their professional and personal networks. Adel Gamar brings Harvard University developed leadership training to us for a two-day course on what skills up-and-coming executives, directors and managers need to lead most effectively. 

The program is ideal for aspiring young professionals who are:
  • looking to increase their leadership skills in line with organizational and strategic perspectives.
  • taking on additional managerial responsibilities.
  • seeking to be effective in their organization.
Presented over two sessions, participants will learn concepts and build key skills in five areas including leadership, negotiation and collaboration. The TCYP Emerging Leaders Suite requires participants to complete pre-programming work and attend both sessions.

Participants will develop a solid understanding of core leadership and management areas. Topics include:
  • Adaptive Leadership
  • Collaboration
  • Active Listening
  • Effective Confrontation
  • Negotiation
During the sessions, participants will also discuss leadership challenges and strategies, enhance their communication skills, build peer support and expand their professional and personal networks.
