This MasterClass is designed to support talented individuals at the start of their careers to accelerate their learning and unlock potential.
Designed for individuals and teams, the program connects participants with independent experienced mentors or senior executives to provide training, advice and guidance on leadership and career. Participants will be supported to build confidence, enhance performance and capability, clarify career plans and broaden networks.
The program includes facilitated events, mentoring circles and training workshops. It offers a chance for reflection and clarity around professional and personal goals.
Five qualities these talented individuals have:
Emerging leaders are smart and talented high-achievers in their current roles. They are driven to accomplish great things.
Emerging leaders are likely to initiate new ways of doing things and are proponents of taking risks to further the organization.
Emerging leaders not only show an interest in developing themselves and their own capabilities, but also have the ability and interest developing others.
Emerging leaders are collaborative, great teammates, and good communicators.
Emerging leaders are strategists and have high business acumen.
Emerging Leader provides a unique perspective on leadership, designed to help executives adapt to the various challenges faced. As an emerging leader, the program takes you on a journey of learning to lead yourself – and then translates that knowledge into leading others and forming effective team collaborations.
Talented up-and-coming leaders will be subject to challenging assignments that stretch them to new heights. Identify strategic projects, high visibility assignments, strategic business opportunities, lean/efficiency projects, and short-term assignments in other divisions/departments and perhaps in tandem with your executive team.
Emerging leaders will benefit from a senior-level mentor or coach.
Rising stars will be given the chance to lead in real time scenarios and practice managing key initiatives. They will be designated as leads on major projects or initiatives and on special committees, teams, or sub-groups.
Each will have a Personal Development Plan (PDP) a living document that is created to help get your rising star from point A to point B in the organization. Why? Lack of structure in developing others leads to lack of accountability by all the parties involved in the development process.
Emerging leaders will undergo rigorous training on the the fundamentals of leadership.
