Emerging Leaders: Transforming High Potential Employees Into Leaders

You've got high-potential individual contributors who could grow into your next generation of leaders. But how do you quickly get them ready to handle the radically different responsibilities that come with management roles? 

Being A Good Employees Isn’t Enough

In this leadership training for high potentials, individual contributors learn what it takes to think and act like a leader. Being technically adept, motivated, and customer-focused is just not enough to turn someone into a leader. They need a different way of thinking and acting.

Think Like A Leader (Not An Individual Contributor)

Leaders have to think strategically, delegate rather than ‘do’ everything, balance the needs of the group, have hard conversations, prioritize & triage, and challenge people without alienating them.

Prepare Your Star Employees For Leadership

This 4-week program will give your high potential individual contributors the mindset and tools they need to become your company’s next generation of leaders. Whether they’re just starting a new leadership role or you’re preparing them for the future, this training is how you grow your best people. 

Here's The Program Curriculum:

Each course in the program includes approximately 1-hour of video presentation. In addition to the video module, each week will include one assignment and one brief quiz to ensure you learned that week's content. Participants can expect to spend around 1.5 hours per week on viewing the video modules and coursework. Here is a listing of all the courses in the Emerging Leaders program,

Week 1: Broaden Your Mindset From Individual Contributor To Leader

This week focuses on transitioning high-potential individual contributors to effective leaders by expanding their perspectives and understanding what it really means to be a leader.

  • Develop Strategic Thinking: Gain insights into making decisions that align with long-term organizational goals, moving beyond day-to-day operations.

Week 2: How To Delegate, Problem Solve, & Coach Like A Leader

STARTING THE WEEK OF AUGUST 12TH, you’re going to take 1 course per week for 4 weeks. (You are not required to login at any set time, so each week you may work on the courses at times that work best for your schedule).

Each week, you’ll watch approximately 1-hour of a video course, and then complete one assignment to hardwire your learnings and take one brief quiz to ensure you learned that week’s content. You can expect to spend around 1.5 hours per week between the videos and the coursework.

You may work ahead and you will not be penalized for falling behind, but ALL MODULES, ASSIGNMENTS AND QUIZZES MUST BE COMPLETED BY 11:59 PM (PST) ON THE FINAL DAY OF THE PROGRAM. The final day of the program is Sunday, September 8, 2024. This is a 4-week program and certificates will not be issued if all coursework is not completed by the deadline.

And if you’re going to train multiple leaders in your organization, you want to know which leaders have progressed through the necessary training and have the skills to lead successfully. To get your certificate, you'll take a test following the 4-week program (and because you watched all the program modules, it will be easy for you to pass with flying colors)!

We don’t offer fluffy platitudes. This program will teach you the latest science and specific scripts to handle dramatic and narcissistic personalities, deliver constructive feedback, motivate high performers, successfully lead teams, resolve conflict, and so much more.
