Global Emerging Leaders Programme 2021
In association with
In our evolving and complex world, the growing demands placed on organisations and businesses call out for a new kind of leadership. Our modern leaders need to be equipped to operate in uncertain environments where change is constant. They need to be open to the unlimited potential within a diverse workforce and a multi-stakeholder eco-system.
The Emerging Leaders programme is designed to replace old-fashioned command and control management with another way; a leadership coaching style that allows space for the workforce to truly show-up, and which creates a thriving and purposeful company culture. As course leaders, we have launched, grown, and supported successful companies. Through our own coaching and learning journeys we have discovered that the qualities and skills of a good coach are likely to have the greatest positive impact on the success and wellbeing of the individual – as well as the success of the people around them.
The programme is designed for ambitious leaders seeking to maximise the positive impact of their role. It also has sustained value for self-aware executives and emerging talent.
The six-week Emerging Leaders Programme
How it evolves
A stage of self-discovery. We focus on the question ‘Who Am I?’ The quest for authenticity, self-mastery and purpose is a fundamental human aspiration, but in the context of our leadership development program, we focus primarily on drawing awareness to our participants’ archetypal behaviours and performance blind spots that can sabotage the future leader’s wholeness and potential.
A two-week period of consolidation and reflection follows which includes 1-2-1 executive coaching, small group discussion, a reading list and journaling.
Focussing on the interpersonal in the workplace, and teaches coaching methodology, competencies, and skills as a leadership style. Throughout the program, participants are introduced to abstract concepts such as holding the space, self-management, and presence, and are then given the opportunity to practise these skills in small groups.
The teaching of coaching as a rewarding way to lead, experiencing a new space for being in conversation, reflecting on this behaviour and then experimenting further, all informs the experiential learning and discovery which is at the heart of this programme.
The programme’s journey represents an ever-expanding ripple effect where self-knowledge and self-leadership enable participants to grow their impact and influence in their workplace.
In advance of PART 3, the learning journey deepens, and following two-weeks of reading, 1- 2-1 executive coaching, peer-coaching and reflective writing, we reconvene for the final workshop.
Teaches the history and evolution of organisational structures and invites the participants to reflect on the system in which they currently operate. Here they actively engage in a series of exercises around letting go of invulnerability, discovering new levels of trust, having difficult and courageous conversations, co-creating goals, and building a culture of accountability. Participants then use their newly discovered leadership potential to facilitate the growth of the team, to harvest collective wisdom and to create a more effective and powerful system.
