The Emerging Leaders Programme (ELP) is a 8-month programme designed to build a firm foundation for young managers who demonstrate high-potential for future leadership roles.

As you build your track record of success as a manager across a variety of situations and challenges, you prepare the way for future success as a leader.

Key Takeaways

Build a deeper understanding of operations, marketing, innovation, and change to develop a cross-functional business approach. Develop a 360-degree perspective of how various functions align with the broader strategy of your organisation. Understand what makes you ‘YOU’ and explore your personal leadership style. Empower your team by delegating, role modeling, and engaging effectively. And bring these newly gained insights into your daily work life to drive higher performance both now and in the future.

Emerging Leaders Programme is crafted for forward-thinking, high-potential executives with 5 - 10 years of work experience who are seeking to play an expanded role in driving corporate strategy and success. Ideal profiles include:
