Emerging Leaders' Summit

This year’s Emerging Leaders’ Summit (ELS), “GROW into Coaching,” is a dynamic multi-part certificate program through which attendees will build an important leadership skill: coaching.  Participants will engage in a content-rich program focused on leading through coaching.  The GROW coaching model and a growth mindset are emphasized.  The program includes three interactive live webinars (June 23, July 14, and Aug. 11), and culminates in a powerful hands-on event during this year’s IAAO Annual Conference in Chicago, “Embracing Change”.  

Presenting in Chicago is award-winning coach, author, educator and speaker, Judy Favor, Ph.D., who has helped countless others reach their potential for more than 25 years.  Participants will benefit from Dr. Favor’s expertise in leadership development, executive coaching, team building, and facilitation and will leave with actionable coaching skills. 

Registration fees are $395 for members and $595 for nonmembers and includes live webinars and conference event, continued access to recorded webinars, a copy of the book Coaching for Performance, a student manual with interactive exercises, and a hands-on skill-building experience with Dr. Favor.  For those unable to come to conference, the Chicago session will be available via video.

Scholarships are available to members to attend. For more information, see the scholarship page.
