Emerging Leader Series

Recruiting, engaging and retaining talent is critical to your success—but did you know the #1 reason that young people leave jobs is a perceived lack of development opportunities? What’s more, 40% of Millennials (people born between 1981 and 1996) want to serve in a leadership capacity and Generation Z (those born after 1996) doesn’t want to follow the traditional hierarchical path of moving up in an organization. This is why ADVISA created the Emerging Leader Series.

About the series

The Emerging Leader Series is tailored to the unique needs of those who are early in their career journey, are high-performing individual contributors, and who want to learn more about management as a possible springboard to their first formal leadership role.

  • It’s 100% virtual with weekly touchpoints for four and a half months
  • The series offers a “best of both worlds” blend of self-directed, “any time, any place learning” and facilitated virtual group sessions using the Zoom video platform
  • Content is delivered in bite-sized chunks that learners can consume all at once and immediately apply the insight gained

Series schedule

Each week, participants will watch micro-learning videos, absorb concepts and new information in self-directed pre-work, engage in a 90-minute group session focused on the leadership topic, and then apply their learnings through follow-up reinforcement and practice.

  • Phase 1: Intro to Leadership
  • Phase 2: Self-Awareness
  • Phase 3: Self-Management
  • Phase 4: Engaging Others
  • Phase 5: Achieve Results + Graduation

The Leadership Diversity Scholarship

In 2021, we introduced the Leadership Diversity Scholarship because diversity makes us better—more creative, more empathetic, and more effective. Further, when people with diverse backgrounds and identities become stronger leaders, entire departments, teams, organizations and communities benefit. Each year, we award fully funded scholarships to the Emerging Leader Series, Leadership Fundamentals and Leadership Academy to leaders from under-represented groups who are eager to grow their skills and positively influence their organizations.

I wanted to learn how to grow as a professional and become a leader, even if I don’t manage a team of people or have a traditional leadership title. I’m grateful for this experience and highly recommend ADVISA’s Emerging Leader Series to anyone looking to grow and develop as a leader in their organization.
