Want to be one of the 30? The Emerging Leader Program will have our 2nd Austin class starting February 9, 2021 for up to 30 invited rising stars and/or senior executives.
This program is designed for Austin small business owners, start-up entrepreneurs, healthcare/hospitals managers, individual contributors from our growing Fortune 1000 and family owned enterprises needing to prepare you or your rising stars in becoming your next generation of senior leadership. Under the guidance of Vistage Senior Chair, Bill LaRosa, participants over a 2-year track develop the core leadership competencies and confidence, empowering them to deliver on company goals.
Questions? Talking with Ed can help shed more light on the benefits.
Unlike other leadership programs that squeeze material into a few back-to-back days and leave implementation at risk, Vistage emerging leaders focus on one topic at a time to encourage mastery. Participants will be challenged to take the next step in their careers within your company, rather than seek outside opportunities. Develop a proven team of senior leaders equipped to take your company to the next level.
High-potential employees tend to know their potential and will move on to another organization if they are not recognized, motivated, and challenged.Association for Talent Development
The up front cost is $5,100 per year for two years, with six meetings a year from 8am to 430pm. The day will consist of a morning “content expert” workshop with the afternoon focused on the morning content as we move into small breakout groups, taking a deeper dive into your personal value add and take-aways. Since smart people want to be around smart people, this training is for A players, those individuals that want to make a difference in becoming better leaders, making better decisions. I will ask each of you to be the mentor or designate a mentor for your mentee.
