Unlike other training and development programs, Next Wave Leaders is 100% customized to meet the needs of your team and business. We work with stakeholders to thoroughly understand the unique challenges facing the organization so we can clearly define training goals. We develop a detailed program that is fully tailored to your group and can continue to be customized as business stakeholders deem appropriate and necessary.
The Next Wave Leaders program is ideal for teams ranging in numbers from 8 to 20. If your team is larger or smaller than this range, other options are available. Please submit an information request to start a conversation.
On-Site Delivery (preferred)
Delivered on-site, the Next Wave Leaders program is a multi-day curriculum. Your organization may choose to host the event over consecutive days or to split the training up over a reasonable period of time.
The on-site program is designed to educate, energize and empower participants in an environment that is safe, productive, and solutions-oriented. We use a variety of interactive tools to stimulate:
- Powerful insights
While on-site delivery is the preferred method, we recognize that it isn’t always feasible for a variety of reasons. Therefore, we also offer a virtual delivery option.
Delivered via web conference, the virtual Next Wave Leaders program is split into multiple sessions of shorter duration taking place over a reasonable period of time. It is required that participants in the same location attend together in one conference room (rather than independently at their own desks). This will reduce multi-tasking and help facilitate greater discussion and interaction. Prior to scheduling, we will confirm the exact set up to ensure the planned activities are suitable.
Participants must also be assured they will have uninterrupted time to participate fully in the program. This is especially important for a virtual training program.
While the methods used may vary, the virtual program is similar to the on-site program in that it is highly interactive.
Once the initial Next Wave Leaders program is complete, we want to build on the positive momentum we’ve created! There are a variety of ongoing learning opportunities available to Next Wave alumni, including:
- The Next Wave Leaders Annual or Bi-Annual Refresher Course: Continue the upward trajectory and keep your emerging leaders focused on professional growth.
- Custom workshops or webinar series: Take a deeper-dive into the development topics based on the needs and feedback of your team.
One-on-One or Partnership Learning
The Next Wave Leaders program can be delivered one-on-one with an individual high-potential employee, or in partnership with an existing leader and his or her targeted replacement.
All attendees are provided with a custom workbook to enhance the experience and support continued progress. This will include some or all of the following:
- Tip sheets
- Step-by-step how-to guides
- Informational articles
- Recommended reading
- Additional resources as needed
Goals & Metrics
We conduct an anonymous survey of the participants pre- and post-program to assess return on investment. A “Wrap Up Report” will be provided at the end of the program, identifying areas of success and areas where further support may be needed.
