Next Level Leaders Program

From the U.S. military to Google, the most successful organizations recognize that both short term & lasting success depends upon the strategic development of the next generation of future generations of leaders. They also know that leaders are made, not born. It’s why most successful enterprise CEOs devote such significant time and resources to succession planning, leadership development, talent identification, coaching, and mentoring. Until now, mid-market companies have been at a disadvantage, lacking the scale and resources to develop their own leadership development programs.

Introducing, the Next Level Leaders Program from Chief Executive Group. This program is designed for your up & coming/best middle managers. It is also designed as well, for your senior executives whose “scope” you would like to expand in order for them to make a more significant impact on your business. The program is not for an average manager in need of remediation.

This customized program enables your high-potential employees to think through and develop their own personal leadership philosophies, work within a structured program that provides coaching, peer and mentor support to execute their custom plan, receive consistent feedback that monitors progress and helps them achieve their full potential.
