Designed as a highly interactive series of workshops, the Fanning Management and Leadership Development program (MLDP) helps individuals develop and practice leadership skills. Sessions are based on adult learning practices emphasizing experiential learning and built around an effective mix of content delivery, discussion, activity, and practice.
Each MLDP participant will take part in:
- an Emergenetics assessment, resulting in an individualized portfolio designed to leverage his/her patterns in thinking and behavior;
- a 360 Leadership Practices Inventory assessment completed by the individual, peers, direct report, and supervisor(s);
- group led service project requirement.
Georgia EMC looked to the Fanning Institute to help prepare the organization’s emerging leaders for leadership positions within the cooperative. Three management and leadership development programs consisting of 20 sessions each highlight a comprehensive list of leadership and management topics. The program, implemented at Jackson EMC, Okefenokee EMC, and Smarr EMC, was designed to enhance participants’ effectiveness in managing the opportunities and challenges faced in the organization.
