Leadership Development Programs

ETD has provided support to hundreds of Minnesota state employees in their leadership development through our SEAL, ELI, and SLI programs. Many of our alumni have experienced increased opportunities and career advancement as a direct result of the development and preparation acquired through our programs.

Begin the path to leadership by enrolling in our Strategic Effectiveness for Aspiring Leaders (SEAL) program. This four (4) day program is filled with opportunities to explore readiness for leadership responsibilities and will provide you with the basic fundamentals to support your potential move into roles with broader leadership implications.

Our Emerging Leaders Institute (ELI) and Senior Leadership Institute (SLI) are the next level programs in leadership development. These cohort-based programs include sessions covering leadership topics delivered over several months. Both ELI and SLI candidates are first identified within their agencies as ready to prepare for future leadership opportunities, and are then selected from several applications by an executive committee to participate in one of the Fall programs.
Apply for ELI or SLI

Note: Participation in the Emerging Leaders Institute (ELI) and the Senior Leadership Institute (SLI) is by application only. Visit each course page for more information on application requirements and deadlines.
