Kyle CullarsKyle CullarsKyle Cullars, assistant vice president for auxiliary services and enterprise development, was selected to join a statewide leadership training program.

This year, Cullars will participate in the University System of Georgia’s (USG) Executive Leadership Institute (ELI).

The ELI is a comprehensive 120-hour development program to help scholars enhance their leadership skills and prepare for potential high-level advancement within the system.

“I am very excited and honored to participate in the program,” said Cullars. “The benefits are great as I learn new ways of doing things, become better equipped for decision-making and gain a greater knowledge of the USG and its institutions.”

Components of the program include group learning sessions, cross mentoring and job shadowing.

“A lot can be learned from watching others,” said Cullars. “I look forward to the chance to work with and learn from people at other institutions, to not only hone my leadership skills, but also get a new perspective on my work.”

The ELI begins in mid-September and continues through April 2014.

Developed in 2009, ELI focuses on continuously developing leadership capabilities in areas such as strategy, execution, collaboration and engagement. Both faculty and staff members within the USG can participate.
