Propel: Leadership Program



The MCAKC Propel Leadership Program is the result of a partnership with Johnson County Community College (JCCC).  The program provides employees in the mechanical contracting industry with critical leadership skills they need to effectively lead projects, lead others, and lead leaders within their organizations.

Led by local leadership experts, this leadership series incorporates group discussions, small group activities, case studies, and introspective exercises that provide participants with the resources to be a leader in this industry.

Propel is limited to 16 participants, creating an environment that empowers participants to collaborate and share their diverse perspectives, ideas, and personal and professional challenges.

Participants will explore their personality strengths and weaknesses as well as outline a leadership style unique to them.  They will return to their organizations with confidence and an action plan for leading projects, teams, and leaders within your company.


  • Improve personal performance by strengthening personal management and communication skills.
  • Handle difficult management situations with greater certainty in decision making.
  • Identify how leadership styles affect team members and how to adjust those styles to gain commitment.
  • Identify and try new approaches needed for growth.
  • Build collaboration, teamwork, and trust to help others excel.


Propel is ideal for new or experienced managers in any function who want to become better leaders, and is ideal for “Emerging Leaders” within an organization.
