FOCUSED Business Forums

Emerging Leaders

FOCUSED Forums for Emerging Leaders is a monthly Forum dedicated to leveraging individual and collective strengths to help each other navigate opportunities and challenges in today’s world.

Members continue to build on the characteristics of great leadership, develop and sustain cultures of excellence, tighten up company infrastructure and efficiencies, and remain resilient during challenging times.

Next Generation

We take the pressure off business owners by expediting the learning curve for their next generation of emerging leaders. Once a month, for 12 months, the next generation members come together to learn and grow.

Bringing the next generation into your business creates a wonderful opportunity for you to start planting the seeds of a long-term succession plan. In an ideal world, business owners would have the time and ability to teach and mentor these younger family or non-family members. But, time becomes a limiting factor and the budding leaders typically get bounced from one department to the next, without gaining a clear understanding of how all the pieces fit together.

The FOCUSED Forums deliverables:

  • Increased confidence.

  • Increased critical thinking and decision-making skills.

  • Increased leadership effectiveness.

  • Increased business acumen.

Emerging Leaders
