Program Details

One-to-One Coaching 

The peer group facilitator serves as an executive coach who works with each member to establish their Leadership Growth Plan — a comprehensive document focusing on business objectives, personal leadership objectives, and company priorities. Coaching details:

  • Develop Leadership Growth Plan and scorecard
  • 10 meetings per year
  • Meeting length is 1 hour

Meeting Preparation

Prior to every meeting, members have a one-on-one session with their group facilitator where they’ll analyze progress on the Leadership Growth Plan and prepare a business case presentation to address a roadblock or critical decision they’re facing.

This ensures that each member arrives at the upcoming group meeting well prepared and ready to foster a focused, high-value experience.

Meeting Structure 

Each meeting begins with brief scorecard updates, followed by several business case discussions in which members present on a key challenge they're facing and receive feedback and recommendations from the group.

  • 5-7 members per group
  • Meetings occur via video conference
  • 10 meetings per year
  • Meeting length ~ 3.5 hours 

Peer Group Dynamic 

Peer group members actively participate in a structured format where they provide each other with fresh perspective as well as candid, critical feedback in a safe space. Members are held accountable for accomplishing their stated goals and receive the necessary support to strategize and problem-solve along the way. This rigorous approach allows members to:

  • Deepen their business knowledge
  • Flex their analytical and problem-solving skills
  • Help their peers solve mission-critical challenges

Emerging Leaders Forum

First-time Managers

This cross-functional group is designed specifically to help first-time managers develop their fundamental leadership skills as they make the transition from individual contributor to people-manager.

Forum discussions focus on challenges and questions that members encounter month-to-month, as well as specific skills-based discussions led by the group facilitator. Members learn from their peers' challenges and receive perspective and critical feedback on their own development.
