Emerging Leaders Group Fall 2017 Enrollments are Open!

Emerging Leaders is a leadership development program developed from KCMN member company feedback in partnership with Johnson County Community College and the National Tooling and Machining Association’s Kansas City Chapter. Our goal is to create opportunities for those who want to improve their leadership and management skills, learn new strategies and connect with others with similar goals. See past graduates HERE

Testimonials:

“The open discussion was the most important part of my experience”
“I’ve learned strategies for dealing with difficult personalities, or people I don’t like or can’t relate to”
“The course made me stop and ask – what am I doing to help myself?’”
“This makes me think about my strengths and barriers, not only for myself, but for my employees and co-workers”
“Our instructor is engaging, personable, and speaks from a wealth of experience”

 FAQ’s:

  • Each Tier was developed as a result of KCMN and KC-NTMA member’s feedback as to skills important for their people to learn or improve. The ‘Tier 1, 2, 3’ implies that you need to go in order, it is not required – this is just the order we developed them in.
  • Unlike in house training programs, Emerging Leaders helps build skills from both a formal classroom presentation, as well as guided interaction with other manufacturers. There is no in-house option for this program.
  • There are 30 spaces available for each session on a first-come basis. Some past sessions have sold out, so please don’t delay.  We need a minimum of 20 participants to fill a session.
  • Participants who attend at least 5 of 6 sessions will receive a Certificate at our final session.  Those who miss more than one session are welcome to return to future sessions to make up any sessions mixed at no charge.
