Accelerating High-Potentials Overview

The Accelerating High-Potentials program includes a strategic business project, leadership curriculum, and leadership coaching.

Strategic Business Project

A team of new and future leaders work together to identify a project that will positively impact the business. They create a strategy for executing that project. In conjunction with leadership coaches, the group takes a “team laboratory” approach that encourages them to form around this business project to gain leadership awareness and mindsets.

During this project, the team will be encouraged to seek input from internal and external sources, influence key stakeholders, and will ultimately present their business project to senior leaders. The expectation is that this project solution will be adopted by the organization and further the success of the business.

Leadership Curriculum

Throughout the planning and development stages, team members will participate in 6 leadership learning modules. The curriculum includes Connecting With People, Stages of Team Development, Inspiring Trust & Confidence, Strategic Thinking & Decision Making, Influencing & Change Management, and Executive Presence.

These leadership learning modules give the leaders skillsets and mindsets that will empower them to become effective leaders.

Leadership Coaching

Each participant in this program is paired with a personal leadership coach who will guide them through the leadership learning process. This coach is the most important tool during this program, helping to individualize curriculum, guide participants in applying new skills on the job, and supporting the team member with expert advice and guidance.

The addition of a leadership coach gives each new leader a mentor who will help shape them into successful, confident, influential, and successful future leaders of the company.


Each individual and organization has different strengths, challenges, and goals. Participants of the high-potential program are partnered with an experienced leadership coach who helps them determine their strategic business project, individualizes the program curriculum, ties it to existing initiatives or challenges, and creates personalized goals and development strategies.

This coach will be the high-potential employee’s co-pilot during the leadership skill development project, coaching them in success during the strategic business project, and helping them to develop the essential skills to be a successful future leader.

This results in participants applying skills long-term in the workplace 3x more effectively (up to 87% skill retention and long-term application) than traditional leadership development programs.
