The Emerging Leaders program is a part-time development program designed to help new managers make the transition from individual contributor to effective leader. Designed for early-career leaders, this program equips participants with the mindset and tools they need to inspire others and achieve measurable results. The emphasis on applied learning ensures participants improve their leadership abilities as well as their confidence to manage people and teams.
This program is for you if you want to:
Enhance your ability to lead yourself and others by understanding your leadership style, leveraging your strengths, and grounding your leadership in your core values. Designed for women leaders, this program starts by exploring your unique leadership identity.
Shift your mindset from individual contributor to team leader. Learn to inspire and motivate your team to accomplish common goals. Improve your communication skills, and your ability to give feedback, coach and develop others.
Interact with women leaders from diverse backgrounds and different industries. Through the program your cohort will grow into a leadership community that you can rely on for support and advice. Research shows that women’s careers benefit from having a diverse network and a close circle of peers. This is one of the lasting benefits of the program!
The Emerging Leaders program is offered in a blended online format. The program combines the flexibility and convenience of online learning, with the benefit of real-time interaction with the facilitator and other participants. We have designed the program to provide a high-touch experience, with community and connection at the heart of the design. This approach allows participants to self-manage their experience while benefitting from shared experiences and social interaction with peers.
Each module is delivered over a period of one week and includes the following facilitated group sessions:
Accessed through a secure online learning portal, you will work through learning materials which include concepts, frameworks, tools, activities and self-reflection. Time commitment: 60-90 minutes prior to the facilitated group sessions.
Engage in 7 high-impact Zoom sessions featuring expert facilitation, group discussion, and activities. You will gain insight from your peers, as well as guest speakers who share their candid perspectives. Time commitment: 2 hours per session.
To help you make the most of your experience in the program, you will receive a personal leadership workbook that includes resources and activities. The activities are designed to help you reflect and learn from your experiences as a leader.
