The transition from individual contributor to Leading People is extremely challenging. How often do you promote a great 'engineer' or 'accountant' or X only to wonder 'why they can't lead'?
Emerging leaders typically don't know what it means-or what it takes-to lead people and frankly, most managers are not good at spotting high potential talent, much less providing meaningful leadership development.
The Aspiring Leader® Series addresses the unique challenges of preparing high potentials for their first Leading People role and empowers them to take ownership for their own growth and development. It's far more empowering, confidence-building, and customized to each unique Aspiring Leader than typical 'training' and 'leadership development programs' targeting emerging leaders.
Whether you're responsible for developing next generation leaders or you are an emerging leader, this coaching-style program is for you.
To date, emerging leaders representing 27 organizations and 4 countries completed the program. Program features, pricing, and design was influenced by the feedback from these Aspiring Leaders. Here's just a few of their comments:
The leadership and leadership development principles behind the program and the 'coaching style' approach ensures the Aspiring Leader® Series works in any industry, culture, organization, and discipline. If you have 15 or more emerging leaders to develop, it can also be customized to your organization's values, competencies, training programs, etc.
Through self-paced videos, cases, high-impact assessments, expert models, practical application throughout the program, and weekly LIVE sessions with Tom, emerging leaders will not only look like they know what they're doing to prepare and start Leading People, but they will know precisely what they're doing and why.
