Create a clear path to becoming future leaders

Blanchard believes it’s important to build your leadership talent pool from within. This means identifying your high-performing individual contributors who are demonstrating a passion for leadership. But to make the transition from individual contributor to proactive, assertive leader, emerging leaders must develop the skills to:

  • Share information accurately and openly
  • Overcome challenges and take risks
  • Demonstrate excellent interpersonal skills
  • Cultivate curiosity about emerging industry and workplace trends
  • Collaborate with and support others
  • Work cooperatively with others across the organization

Blanchard views all employees as leaders—all individual contributors lead themselves, while some may also indirectly lead others in projects and teams. Our emerging leader curriculum infuses individual contributors with a leadership mindset and gives them the skills that matter in their work today and pave the way for a formal leadership role. These learners engage with several research-based models that apply to the whole human experience, not just work, serving as a force multiplier of leadership capability.
