Leadership Training at DMACC


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Emerging Leaders Program

For several years a top training topic for companies has been leadership development but sometimes a company only has a few individuals for a course which can make the needed training cost prohibitive. Enter DMACC's Emerging Leaders initiate, a joint effort of DMACC Business Resources and DMACC Continuing Education. Course topics were identified by a focus group consisting of organizations of various sizes and industries.

Aimed at employees identified as high potential for leadership positions, this training will help grow and develop your organization's future leaders.

Purchase a seat for $1,500 and send the same employee to all nine sessions or divide the sessions among multiple employees. Additional seats are $1,250 each. A light breakfast, coffee and water will be available at each session.

What are You Saying? What Your Body Language is Really Communicating
