NCTI has launched its Emerging Leader Certification Program. Intended for soon-to-be or newly promoted managers and supervisors, the Emerging Leader curriculum is designed to teach and/or sharpen the skills necessary to be an effective leader.

"MSOs tell us they welcome the opportunity to promote individuals who succeed at their jobs into managerial roles," said Stacey Slaughter, CEO of NCTI. "Unfortunately, they sometimes see those same individuals struggle, once promoted, because they haven't been given the proper tools to thrive as leaders. The courses required for the Emerging Leader certificate impart the foundational skills and address issues and concerns top of mind for every organization."

The Emerging Leader certification comprises eight courses, developed and taught by Dr. Liz Selzer. Leadership 101 and Mentoring 101 are designed to teach the essential skills to leverage individual strengths and the strengths of others to maximize the collective impact, and instill the importance of the mentoring process, building relationships and setting goals. The remaining six courses are more granular and address critical topics any leader, new or seasoned, needs to know, including Working Across Generations and Maximizing Diversity, Effective Communication, Healthy Conflict Management, Building Synergistic Teams, Managing and Promoting Change, and Organizational Change and Innovation.

Although targeted toward the new or newer leader, the curriculum is intended to be relevant to anyone at any level within an organization. NCTI recommends the curriculum to senior managers, vice presidents and C-level executives to hone their leadership aptitude.
