Haslam Emerging Leaders Program

Course Description

The Haslam Emerging Leaders Program follows a methodical approach to building leadership and management skills for emerging leaders across industry. The series consists of two four-day sessions taking place over three months to minimize participants time away from work and maximize opportunity for practice between sessions.

While an emerging leader will benefit the most by  attending both sessions, each four-day block is thematically based, so that participants have the ability choose to attend either or both sessions.

The Emerging Leaders program uses interactive learning, small- and large-group discussion, lectures, cases and simulations to enhance participant learning. Class size is limited to personalize the learning experience.

Designed for:

  • New and transitioning leaders who are ready, able and inspired to create a positive impact for their teams, organizations and communities
  • High-potential leaders on the verge of expanding their managerial responsibility in their organizations


  • Enhance awareness of your personal leadership values, strengths, style and effectiveness in your context
  • Build a solid foundation of essential managerial and leadership skills to put into action
  • Explore actionable influence strategies to help you become a more influential and effective leader
  • Strengthen your ability to lead high-performing teams.
  • Develop strategic thinking and decision-making skills to prepare for future leadership roles.
  • Create a personalized leadership action plan to propel personal change
