Emerging Leaders Academy

KUPMC Emerging Leaders Academy

The Emerging Leaders Academy is a talent management program targeted to promising, non-supervisory/non-managerial staff to help them prepare for leadership roles in their departments and organizations. Participants meet together ten times over five months, with classes designed to help them hone their skills for positions of increasing responsibility while also growing their effectiveness in their current roles.

Now enrolling for fall! Class begins September 23 in Mission and September 25 in Topeka. 
Applications due September 4.


ELA participants gain knowledge and skills in leadership, organizational dynamics, communication, and career planning to help them identify and achieve their professional goals while equipping them with tools to make even stronger contributions to their organizations. Agencies who invest in sending staff to ELA gain a more prepared and engaged talent pool to draw from for the future, a critical need as many leaders in public service organizations move toward retirement.

We offer ELA twice each year, with one session in the spring and one in the fall. Click here for the fall 2015 meeting schedule.

Contact Noel Rasor, ELA Program Director, if you'd like to be notified about dates for future sessions of ELA or if you have questions about the program.

Why ELA?

Developed by practitioners for practitioners, the Emerging Leaders Academy is more than just a series of professional development classes. Each class builds on the ideas from previous meetings to create a broad, practical understanding of working in public service environments that meet the needs of our communities and citizens. Grounded in hands-on activities, each meeting offers valuable takeaways focused on both immediate practical use and long term career success.
