Top talents assigned to their first significant leadership roles are thrust into authoritative position and tasked with creating an environment that promotes team growth and business success while mitigating conflict. They need to demonstrate credible leadership to their superiors, peers, and subordinates. However, it takes a full set of skills and a leadership mindset to master the challenges and fulfill the high expectations faced by today?s emerging leaders. In the first module, the Emerging Leaders Program (ELP) is an introduction to the reality, the contexts, and the personal aspects of leading. Participants will reflect on the contextual aspects of their roles, relating them to corporate and departmental strategies, teams they lead, as well as co operations and coalitions within and outside organizational boundaries.
In the second module of the program, the emerging leaders reflect on the responsibilities they have taken on by accepting a leadership role. Participants will become familiar and experiment with various leadership styles, explore their personal leadership ambitions, and work on their personal approaches to leadership. The conceptual backdrop of ELP allows for the co-existence of a variety of leadership theories so that participants may choose the one that best suits them, their organization, and their career objectives.
