Focused Business Forums

Emerging Leaders

We know what it takes to grow strong business leaders. We help emerging leaders articulate their vision, lead by example, inspire others, be mentors, demonstrate courage, and build on the characteristics of great leadership.

Your son, daughter, niece, nephew, or non-family member has been working in your company for several years. As they learn the various aspects of the business and get to know the employees, they continue to earn more responsibility. To gain a balance between the application of technical and interpersonal skills, these young leaders need to develop, hone, and practice their leadership skills and styles early in their careers.

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.

It’s a proven fact that peer groups, professionally facilitated in a highly confidential environment, stimulate high level brainstorming, problem solving, and personal and professional growth.

Emerging Leaders

By working in a highly confidential, facilitated group environment with other non-competing businesses, emerging leaders learn through four basic elements.
