Emerging Leader Program


The Vistage Emerging Leader Program prepares your rising stars to become your next generation of senior leadership. Under the guidance of a Vistage Chair, an accomplished business leader and master facilitator, participants develop core leadership competencies and confidence, empowering them to deliver on company goals.


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 advance 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.


Benefits to Emerging Leaders:

  • Core leadership competencies: Training in 12 leadership competencies within four key areas: personal, inter-personal, team and organizational leadership.
  • Career advancement: The confidence and proficiency to take on a greater leadership role.
  • Networking: Valuable opportunities to expand their sphere of influence and gain professional contacts.

Benefits to Your Organization:

  • Bench strength: Fill mission-critical leadership roles with trusted employees.
  • Employee retention: Incentivize top talent to seek advancement in-house through a culture of leadership development.
  • Improved execution: Improve the competency of all levels of leadership to develop an organization that is effective, adaptable and empowered.
