High Potential Leadership Development Programmes

Customised coaching for emerging leaders

High-potential leaders represent the future of your organisation. They demonstrate the qualities to lead others and consistently perform at high levels. Yet, they need learning and coaching before assuming responsibility for leading others and delivering high-level business results.
These talented employees require a different approach to developing effective leadership skills. Our high potential development programme has just what they need.

From introspection to inspiration

The journey from potential to polished leader has internal and external components. We encourage potential leaders to look inward to find their leadership style and outward to understand what others need. Learn more about how we developed emerging leaders at Havas Health.

By delivering a compelling leadership development journey, we help your organisation sow the seeds for strong leadership for today and into the future.

Your leadership transformation partner

For many emerging leaders, our high-potential leadership development programme may be their first exposure to this type of learning. To ensure a career- and life-changing experience, our programmes focus on developing specific skills needed to step into a leadership role. No two leadership journeys are alike. The following areas that are vital to a high potential development path.

  1. Change and Resiliency

    Leading in an uncertain and complex world requires the ability to lead through change. Emerging leaders in this course learn the difference between change and transition, the importance of resiliency, and practical ways to build it.

  2. Distinctive Leadership

    Create a sustainable shift in your organisation’s leadership capabilities through a highly experiential journey that includes assessments, executive coaching, live or virtual workshops, and ongoing peer coaching.

  3. Emotional Intelligence

    Emotional intelligence (EQ) provides a more reliable predictor of success than IQ. This course explores the development of EQ to increase career success and the quality of relationships, inside and outside the workplace.

  4. Leadership Coaching

    Our executive coaches help emerging leaders refine their leadership styles and enhance their skills. Their hands-on coaching includes setting personal leadership development goals, learning to see how others perceive them, and developing action plans to achieve their goals.

  5. Mentoring

    Mentors serve as a trusted guide for emerging leaders. This high-potential leadership development programme supports mentors and protégés in learning about each other, identifying interaction guidelines, and setting goals for a successful mentoring relationship.

  6. Leading Out Loud

    The best leaders inspire people by authentically communicating the link between their values and the needs of others. Learn how to clearly communicate the link between an individual’s job and the goals, values, and strategies of the team and the organisation.

  7. Why Should Anyone Be Led by You

    Great leaders excite people to exceptional performance by understanding their unique differentiators and by addressing the four critical needs of their people: community, authenticity, significance, and excitement.
