A Turnkey Training Program for Emerging Leaders

In many organizations, leaders are promoted from within. Employees who were adept at performing in individual contributor roles are often tapped to move into supervisory and managerial positions.

Unfortunately, many are not prepared for this transition. They don’t have the skills, training, or experience they need to effectively lead and manage their teams.

Emerging leader programs can help ensure that your newly promoted employees have the confidence and competencies they need to excel in their new roles.

Leverage Your Emerging Leaders’ Skills

Most organizations have emerging leaders who are promoted based on their job performance and technical skills but have rarely received formal training on how to lead and manage others.

Business Training Experts offers a leadership training program that will ensure that your newly promoted employees have the confidence and competencies they need to excel in their new roles.

Supervisors are usually promoted based on their job and technical skills rather than leadership potential. They often don’t receive formal, ongoing training on how to be a good manager and lead other people.

Accelerate Your Emerging Leaders’ Impact

When a new leadership position opens up in your organization, you want that new leader properly trained so they can hit the ground running in their new role.

In fact, as you identify employees with the potential to move into leadership roles, observing their performance during emerging leader training can help you gain confidence in their abilities and identify those most likely to succeed.

Even existing supervisors and managers can benefit from skills development that focuses on the specific skills and practical knowledge leaders need to manage and coach others. During group discussions, they can pass along insights they’ve learned through the years to new leaders.
