Emerging Leaders Programme

The PDP Emerging Leaders Programme (ELP) is a unique opportunity to develop your company’s succession plan and for employees to enhance their ability and willingness to lead. ELP builds confidence and vision whilst meeting other ‘up and coming’ stars of the future.

Some organisations are fortunate enough to have, within their ranks, one or more people who, with the right training at the right time, will go on to become amazing leaders – people who just need someone to recognise their potential and be willing to make an investment in their growth and development.

This will be a life changing experience for participants and a hugely beneficial investment for your organisation.


Target Group

The criteria to join the programme defies a rigid definition. As a guide, participants will have a willingness to learn and may be surprised to be chosen. Other than these, we rely on judgment. Future leadership potential is a case of ‘you know it when you see it’.

ELP is learning through:

  • Exploration
  • Explanation
  • Experience.

Participants will be placed in real situations, facing real dilemmas and making real decisions. Topics will be backed up with theories, discussions and feedback. This is not  “chalk and talk” training, there is no roleplay and regardless of their starting point, participants can expect to work outside of their physical, mental and social comfort zones.




Personal Qualities Professional Qualities
Leading with confidence Learning from failure Strategic thinking Conflict resolution

Pre- and Post Programme Support

Effective leaders are surrounded by a good support system and this course will be no different. Participants will receive support from the facilitators, other participants and their managers/colleagues at different points throughout the programme, which is appropriate to the development of the individual.

“My manager asked me to attend this course as a way of getting myself back into a ‘workplace’ frame of mind after having twelve months off on maternity with my baby.

I was nervous being the only one attending from my organisation, but nerves were soon set aside thanks to the ice breaking tasks which immediately made us all at ease with one another.

I was fortunate to be on the course with an amazing group of people and as time went on we shared more and more about our personal and professional experiences which became part of the learning. I’m hoping we all stay in touch and continue to learn from one another.

The course is brilliant- none stop, intense, fun and immensely rewarding if you give it your all.

If you’re looking for a leadership course because you’re new to management or even if you’ve been in management but feel like you could do with a refresher and to look at things from a different perspective then this is the course for you- it really is brilliant!”
