Are you ready to take lead?

The LEA Global Emerging Leaders Program focuses on managers with 5+ years of experience who hope to progress to a senior leadership role and advance their skills to lead with confidence.

Currently active in North America only but with plans to expand, the program is an annual training and coaching program focused on managers within member firms. It gives participants a unique opportunity to grow as a leader, expand their engagement with mentors and build relationships with future leaders of LEA Global member firms.

The program runs across 12 months with three, 1.5 day sessions in total. It covers a range of leadership topics, strategies and practices: from understanding individual impact on retention; development and well-being of staff; through to how leaders can create a strong community and sense of purpose within a firm – and how they can build great teams that deliver results.

But it doesn’t just provide the theory. The core of the program is designed to give managers an opportunity to practice new skills and tackle real world challenges. And it’s all done in a safe group setting, where participants are encouraged to share their experiences and thoughts with peers – and learn from each other too. To support learning in between sessions, they have the opportunity to engage with mentors, experiment with new leadership practices and take part in select reading assignments.

North America started its first class in July 2022 and the first cohort will graduate in June 2023. Nikohl Stegman from the firm Richey May is part of that cohort. She says:

“I love that this program is not just providing general knowledge, it is very much individualized. We have been able to self-reflect, identify our problem areas, and look for ways to improve from within. This training will not only help us become better leaders, but better, happier, and more fulfilled people. A simple thank you cannot express the full level of gratitude I have to have the opportunity to be part of this program. I am very excited for what is to come.”

If you know someone who is ready to take the lead, this could be the program for them. For more information and when to apply, please contact Carla Blattenbauer, Program Manager at LEA Global.
