The groundbreaking leadership programme for emerging leaders

Equip Your Emerging Leaders with 
the Essential Skills to Succeed

A blended leadership programme, The Leader’s Map equips your emerging leaders with the skills and confidence to lead successfully.

Personal Progress, 
Group Support

Too often, people are thrust into roles of people leadership without the necessary skills and tools to succeed. The Leader’s Map fills that void. The Leader’s Map enables emerging leaders to aquire, amplify and apply the core leadership skills to succeed. Participants also learn to set clear paths for how things are to be accomplished and encourage ownership and a problem-solving approach to delivery.

Using The Leader’s Map app, leaders can study from anywhere at their own pace. Real-time progress monitoring facilitates the Programme Manager to support leaders and your organisation to remain motivated to succeed. Group in-person or virtual coaching sessions enhance online learning and enable those taking part to master their new skills by putting them into practice.

Made for Those in Roles Requiring Skilled Leadership

The programme gives emerging leaders the necessary tools to succeed in their role, integrating online lessons with group coaching sessions and activities.

How many leaders can we put through the programme? 

An organisation can have cohorts between 9-50 people at one time. Many clients have run multiple cohorts, starting at different times during the year.

How customisable is The Leader’s Map? 

Because of the blended nature of the programme (online and group coaching components), it offers multiple opportunities to tailor the material to your unique needs. The end of module group coaching sessions, in particular, use your leaders’ real life leadership experiences to embed learnings.

We also have Executive Team Sponsors from your organisation sponsor each module, providing another mechanism to customise the material to your unique context.

In addition, we can customise The Leader’s Map online content to include links to your organisation’s intranet, values, strategy and existing leadership frameworks. Additional fees apply for fully customised site.

How long does the programme take? 

The Leader’s Map follows best practice adult leadership learning in that it utilises ‘learning on the job’. Instead of going on a three day course - and then forgetting what you have learned - The Leader’s Map is designed to be completed over a 8-12 month period. This involves self directed online learning, with each module taking approximately 6-8 weeks to complete. At the end of each module, group coaching sessions enable the participants to embed their learnings, share experiences and break down cross functional siloes.
