Emerging Leaders Program

Leadership Development for Construction Financial Professionals

The Emerging Leaders Program is a nine-month program for early-and mid-career financial professionals in the construction industry ready to supercharge their careers and deliver better results for their companies.


This dynamic program is a combination of online and in-person sessions. It goes beyond traditional management training, the instruction is framed within a leadership model of inwardly sound and others focused. Participants will learn from guest presenters, work in small groups to explore topics, get support from their peers, and strengthen their executive presence.

The program spans nine-months with two in-person group sessions and seven monthly live, online group sessions.
Participants will learn how to make strategic decisions, sharpen their business acumen, build upon their leadership competencies, and strengthen executive presence.
Participants will learn through curated books, videos, articles, online courses, and other resources which will reinforce key principles to help participants better understand themselves and develop leadership tactics to help them better navigate their organizations.
We emphasize developing business acumens, change management, managing difficult situations or people, and crafting and managing their personal brand to chart their own professional path as they rise through the ranks.
