Deadline Extended: Apply to the Emerging Leaders Supervisor Series

The deadline to apply to the Emerging Leaders Supervisor Series (ELSS) has been extended to close of business on Friday, January 6. ELSS is a 15-month cohort program designed to provide support as you develop and practice new leadership skills with your team while deepening your understanding of Mason policies. The goals of ELSS are to support participants as they:

  • Develop a leadership mindset
  • Create and implement a vision for their own leadership and their team
  • Lead a high-performing team
  • Learn tools and strategies to grow their self-awareness, relationships, and communication skills, which will support the objectives above.

In addition to the curriculum, participants work with assigned workplace coaches to set goals related to their growth as a leader. Each participant will complete a developmental project and will have the opportunity to work with peers across the university to learn more about the institution and to build a network of fellow supervisors.

Applicants must be Mason faculty or classified staff and must supervise at least one employee who is faculty or classified staff. This cohort will run from February 2023 to May 2024. All sessions will be held in person; fully remote applicants will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
