ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Today’s successful companies rely on attracting and retaining talented younger employees in addition to more experienced staff and have expanded their insight in staff development, young employee support and career planning to actively promote junior employees. As a result, young managers and staff are often given the responsibility for important tasks, projects and management functions, as senior managers are encouraged to delegate and measured on developing team members as part of their KPIs. Quickly being given responsibility poses challenges in a broad range of areas for the young talents who must pick up the speed or risk being left behind.
Hiring young staff is by no means a philanthropic project from the companies’ side. The value lies in bringing innovative ideas to the table, and challenging status quo, which also places expectations for initiative and making one’s voice heard.
Where does this leave you as a young professional? You leave your comfort zone and are suddenly in the middle of everything all by yourself. With high expectations and a relative lack of experience you are vulnerable, and you stand between employees, colleagues and senior management with your actions and decisions visible and open for judgement. How can you create an image of yourself as a leader within your company while dealing with responsibilities and learning at the same time?
INDIVIDUALS can accompany you in the process and help you learn faster while you are taking a major step in your career. We will prepare you for your future as an innovative, committed and effective leader.
