Leadership Development

Build Your Leadership Pipeline With High-Potential Employees

High potentials are the future of your organization. Prep them for what's next with individualized leadership development.

You already know that to secure your organization’s future, your talent pipeline must be sustainable. To retain and strengthen your pool of future leaders, commit to developing your high-potential employees at every level of your organization.

In our decades of research and hands-on experience, we’ve found that high-potential employees are more committed and engaged when they have a clear career path, development opportunities, and the support they need. Another must? Personalized, individualized leadership development.

Learning to lead is an intensely personal experience — and one that shifts over time. Our individualized leadership development programs are grounded in comprehensive assessments that tailor our programs to every leader, no matter where they sit in the org chart.

We can provide the right learning at the right time for your top talent — from new managers through senior executives. Our individualized leadership development programs can meet your high-potential employees where they are, and take your organization where it needs to go.

Invest in Your People, Invest in Your Future

What’s the best way to “future-proof” your organization and secure your leadership pipeline? Develop and retain your most learning-agile, high-potential employees.

The reality is that effective talent management is not a one-sided effort. Look at your pipeline of leaders through an organizational lens to identify, develop, and engage your highest-potential employees. Just as important, understand what it looks like from inside the pipeline. That’s where individualized leadership development isn’t just a nice-to-have; it’s your key to attracting, developing, and retaining your most valuable talent.

Individualized Leadership Development for High-Potential Employees: Choose the Solution That’s Right for You

A job promotion doesn’t automatically create a new leader — it creates the opportunity to become one.

Frontline, first-level, and new managers are your largest population of leaders, the critical people responsible for day-to-day operations. Equip them to start strong.

We offer individualized leadership development for high-potential employees who are new to managing others or to groom talent with leadership potential.

Our new manager courses and solutions are carefully designed to address the specific challenges faced at this leader level.

Leading from the middle isn’t about a position; it’s about meeting the demands from above while meeting the needs of those below. It’s a tricky balance, and requires thinking and acting systemically.

We pioneered a highly individualized leadership development program aimed at exactly these managers leading from the middle — and it’s now the most widely recognized and longest-running program of its kind in the world.

Our middle manager training programs are focused on developing the skills these high-potential employees need to become more effective as they lead your organization from the middle.

Do those leading your organization have the strategic perspective and skillset needed to succeed?

Leading from the top comes with a different set of demands, and how your executives handle these challenges can have a swift and defining impact on your organization’s success.

Our prestigious, top-ranked executive leadership programs make sure your senior leaders are harnessing their full potential to lead their business units, departments, or functions and propel your organization forward. Equip them with a broad perspective and strategic skillset to collaborate effectively and steer your organization into the future.

Our dedicated leadership experts will partner with you for individualized leadership development for your high-potential employees or key talent populations. We offer an array of highly personalized leadership programs, which can be customized to develop the leadership competencies most needed for your organization’s unique context and culture. Incorporate feedback from 360 assessments and sustain the learning with leadership coaching to maximize impact. Align leadership development with your business strategy and goals to motivate and retain your top talent and secure your organization’s future leadership pipeline.

What Our Clients Are Saying

We measure success by lives touched and impact made. That’s why the organizations we work with and the leaders we transform consistently tell us the same thing: their experience with us isn’t just a game-changer, it’s a life-changer. Our highly individualized leadership development solutions have helped turn thousands of high-potential employees into engaged, committed, successful leaders — who, in turn, transform their organizations and communities.

But don’t just take our word for it — take theirs.

“With such a diverse group from multiple time zones and different countries, we wanted to steer away from a ‘one size fits all’ approach to leadership development. The virtual experience was the best solution for our needs.”
