2023 Emerging Leader Program

2023 Emerging Leader Program 

March 14 | April 12 | May 16 | September 27 | November 14

Five full-day, in-person sessions, supplemented by three virtual/web de-brief and accountability sessions 

The Emerging Leader Program (ELP) is an annual leadership development program designed to build competencies and confidence for your next generation of community bank leaders. Participants will be guided through Five Exemplary Leadership Practices®, a 360-degree feedback assessment, DISC® communication styles, Strengths Finder® and the basics of Performance Management and Development, concluding with their individual presentation to build executive presence. A mentor from your organization is utilized throughout the program to bring application of the learning to life and provide for personal and professional growth opportunities.

Perfect opportunity for...

  • Front-line or first-level high-performing leaders with ~1-5 years of experience managing employees
  • Mid-level individual contributors who are high-potential candidates for promotion to a leadership role

Each session will be supported with reflection pre-work and field-work assignments designed to facilitate on-the-job practice, application, and engagement with a senior leader mentor. Small-group virtual meetings are held throughout to de-brief progress and support accountability.
