The Training for Young Leaders

Course Description

In the midst of the great resignation and the war for talent, many organizations struggle to attract and retain next generation leaders. The triangility Leadership Talent Program is designed to strike the balance between ‘what’ young leaders need to know to thrive in their new roles, and ‘how’ they can learn that in the most effective way.

We equip the next generation of leaders with the skills, tools, and mindset to succeed in today’s complex, uncertain and rapidly changing (business) world. This training provides an opportunity for future leaders to grow both personally and professionally. That will allow your organization to foster talent retention and unleash and harness the full potential of young people.

The program covers core leadership competencies such as self-awareness, communication, team development, and culture change. And it also addresses challenges and opportunities arising from current mega-trends, industry developments, changing customer needs. In doing so, we equip young people with the skills and knowledge to effectively lead themselves, others and business in today’s VUCA world.

Through interactive live workshops, peer-to-peer learning, and on-demand coaching, your talents will learn the latest principles and competences of Leadership. They’ll learn from our experienced mentors and build a network of peers within the organization to drive sustainable transformation of the organization together.
