Emerging Leaders Program

Your Grand Lodge officers recognize the need to prepare the future leaders for our Masonic Fraternity. The Education & Public Relations Committee is providing this state-of-the-art leadership training to the members of subordinate Lodges, York Rite Bodies and Chapters of the Order of the Eastern Star. This group of individuals will be better prepared to move into leadership positions within the fraternity or continue to sharpen those leadership skills they have already acquired.

The first course, Level 100 (Personal Effectiveness), you learn to self-assess your leadership abilities to know where to focus your skill development. Then learn how a leader impacts and is seen by the individual. Lastly, learn the skills of understanding the individual and creating a real bond where leadership can flourish.

The second course, Level 200 (Group Dynamics), takes what you learned in Personal Effectiveness and applies those skills to the group. Learn how to assess the characteristics of your members and combine those personalities into teams that execute efficiently and effectively.

The third course, Level 400 (Influential Communication), you become a conscious creator of your experience, responsible for your results. In this class you will learn how the human mind processes language, where misunderstanding comes from, and how to avoid it. When you are a powerful communicator, you can better share the vision of your organization and accomplish the mission.

The courses are open to all Master Masons and ladies of the Eastern Star in good standing and are taken in order.

Leadership is a visionary means for effecting change. While much of the material is generally applicable, the addition of Masonic references and information makes it extremely applicable to the Craft. Designed to integrate solid leadership and communication skills, with a special emphasis on Masonic teaching, the program promotes classroom interaction and participation, cross-culturalization, and development of personal relationships upon which to build a bright future for our Fraternity.
