Emerging Leader Programme

Strong leadership tomorrow starts today.

Successful leaders know that the greatest investment you can make is in your people. But how do you prepare your rising stars to become your next generation of senior leadership? Consider the Emerging Leader Programme, a dynamic, comprehensive curriculum that provides real world leadership training specifically for the middle manager.

Guided by an accomplished business leader and master facilitator, members develop core leadership competencies and the confidence to deliver on company goals.

Unlike leadership programmes that squeeze a wide-range of material into a few days and leave members without follow up, the Vistage Emerging Leader Programme cultivates mastery by focusing on one topic at a time. Members are nurtured to advance their careers within your company, rather than seek outside opportunities. The net result is a professional, empowered team of senior leaders who are prepared to grow with your business, taking it to the next level.

  3. Structure: Each meeting features an expert Vistage speaker who leads an interactive workshop that covers one of the competencies, followed by a seasoned Vistage Chair who teaches the mastery of it.
  4. Reinforcement: Members collaborate with peers from inside and outside their companies to cultivate their leadership skills and effectiveness.

I take away something different every time, it’s great to hear from an expert speaker and get a birds eye view of a topic or issue.

For someone from an IT background to go into something like sales negotiation, it’s interesting to see the crossover and differences in management skills
