Emerging Leader Development Program
In difficult times, successful organizations develop their high-potential leaders in order to remain competitive and grow over the long term.
The Emerging Leader Development Program is specially developed for midlevel executives who are about to take on larger managerial responsibilities and need to expand their leadership capabilities. This program is a journey of self reflection, practical applications, and change.
The Emerging Leader Development Program provides participants with a wide range of learning opportunities. A 360-degree feedback tool, combined with one-on-one consultation on the results, helps participants take an in-depth look at their leadership strengths and weaknesses.
The program covers several key business skills, always with a focus on how to apply them, both personally and within an organizational context. Effective leadership, strategy formulation, better decision making and negotiating skills, and successful change management form the core of the program's curriculum.

Benefits in the Current Context
"An executive's softer skills can determine his/her ability to create value, drive change, and build institutions. The current round of economic turmoil means that certain organizational responses are inevitable. Mastery of the softer interpersonal skills is what will separate those who merely survive these changes from those who will thrive and grow as leaders."
–Professor Robert Bontempo, faculty director
