Emerging Leaders - A Digital Program
The Emerging Leaders Digital Program is designed for key staff in your bank who are emerging as potential leaders. Participants will engage in 1½ hour video conference calls covering specific leadership topics once a month for 6 months. If you are unable to attend the scheduled video conference in a given month, a recording of the session will be made available to you. All sessions will start at 3:00 p.m. (Eastern Standard Time).
Homework assignments taking approximately 1 hour to complete will be assigned following each session. Each participant will receive a ½ hour one-on-one coaching call in between sessions focused on that assignment and lessons learned. Participants will gain experience with fundamental leadership competencies without ever being out-of-office. At the conclusion of the program, participants will have leadership plans in place preparing them to take the next leadership steps at their banks.
