NEW LEADERS PROGRAM
BUILDING REAL-WORLD LEADERSHIP
Are you a high potential leader in college, graduate school, or in your early career? Do you know someone who is? Then the Vanguard Network New Leaders programming may be just right.
New Leaders combines peer-to-peer engagement with candid insights from experienced leaders who are not shy about their mistakes. No PowerPoint. No podiums. No presentations.
It's all based on the powerful Vanguard platform for C-Suite leadership Forums and Roundtables that have engaged thousands of top executives in dialogues on critical leadership challenges, and expanded their networks.
Each module of New Leaders is carefully calibrated to build real-world leadership capabilities that will be valuable for a lifetime–from self-awareness, to leading through influence, to building effective teams.
New Leaders integrates seamlessly with existing leadership programs in which participants may already be participating.
We offer three New Leaders programs:
This brings together individuals from varied backgrounds, businesses, colleges and universities for a Vanguard engagement. We are currently working on our 2024 offering. Meanwhile, please click below to see our past programming!
Tailored to the needs and objectives of individual companies for their new hires and early career professionals. Virtual, face-to-face, or hybrid as appropriate.
Working to create the New Leaders Program was a formative experience. I had the opportunity to ideate and collaborate with brilliant leaders, which pushed my own thinking and confidence in a work environment. I’m excited to see this program's impact on future generations of New Leaders!"
