Your opportunity

Talents assigned to their first leadership roles need to prove themselves to their superiors, peers, and collaborators. Succeeding requires a profound change in both skills and mindset: from a talent who delivers value individually to a leader who creates value through others. The Emerging Leaders Program is designed to enable participants to manage this critical transition and realize their full leadership potential. In the first module, participants will develop insights and tools to help them deal with the multifaceted contexts in which leadership plays out while learning how effective leadership requires actively managing upwards, downwards, and laterally. In the second module, participants will reflect on the responsibilities they have accepted as future leaders. Through intense interactions with faculty, peers, and professional actors, they will explore the ethical and psychological foundations of leadership and work on preparing a foundation for their own individual path to leadership.

Who is it for

Managers who have recently been appointed to leadership positions or high potentials in preparation of their first significant leadership roles. The program is designed to embrace participants with diverse professional and personal backgrounds.
