Businesses are now having to continually challenge the way they operate in order to remain competitive. Rapid technological change and an increasingly diverse workforce is ensuring organisations have to adapt and evolve like never before, presenting business leaders with fresh challenges almost daily.
To succeed, businesses therefore require a sustainable supply of skilled and inspirational leaders. However, with poor talent retention rates causing concern across the board, how can you ensure strong leadership pipelines to drive future business success?
That's where we come in.
Using the 70:20:10 framework as a recognised and effective model for personal development, where 70% is learnt through experience, 20% is learnt through others, and 10% through formal training, The Future Group sits within the 20%, providing an ideal environment for members to learn not just from the experts, but also from each other.
Our comprehensive programme is broken down into three core components:
Human skills; the skills that CEOs value the most, but are hardest to find. Our workshops will develop skills like communication, negotiation, presentation, charisma – the things that make you stand out from the crowd.
How do you manage an increasingly cross-cultural workforce? How do you cope with and manage organisational change? How do you interact with Whitehall? With support from industry experts, these are the types of question we will help to answer.
Collaboration is key. Our programme culminates with a live 24-hour business challenge, requiring the group to work together and put everything they have learned to the test. After all, diamonds are formed under pressure.
The Future Group offers a unique and valuable mechanism to reward, retain and develop your future leaders.
As a member of this elite, cross-sector group, your brightest stars will work through a comprehensive personal development programme which will push them out of their comfort zone, and up to the next level.
Based on the insights and experiences of C-Suite executives, the Future Group will not only help to develop the human skills that leaders need the most, but will also provide members with a diverse and lasting alumni network of next-gen talent.
