Blanchard sees that all employees can be leaders in their own right—individual contributors lead themselves, while others may also affect the development of projects and teams. Our emerging leader plans aim to instill individuals with a leadership mindset, provide them with the necessary skills to undertake their current duties and prepare them for a more senior leadership position. Learners take part in multiple research-backed approaches encompassing all aspects of life, not just work, heightening their leadership capacity.

Doing so will allow individual contributors to comprehend the value to them and their organization. Our individual contributor learning journeys are designed to integrate interaction points with a learner’s manager, which will incentivize them, keep them accountable, advise on skill application in their workplace setting, and urge new skills and desired behaviors.Talk to an Expert
