Vistage for Emerging Leaders

The Harrisburg Regional Chamber, in partnership with John Dame, is proud to present the Vistage Emerging Leader Program. This program prepares your rising stars to become your next generation of senior leadership. Under the guidance of a Vistage Chair, an accomplished business leader and master facilitator, participants develop core leadership competencies and confidence, empowering them to deliver on company goals.

The Vistage Emerging Leaders program directly ties training to implementation. Vistage emerging leaders focus on one topic at a time to encourage mastery, completing 12 leadership competencies over the course of the program. Participants will be challenged to advance their careers within your company, rather than seek outside opportunities. Develop a proven team of senior leaders equipped to take your company to the next level.

We recognize the need our members have to train their employees to become stronger leaders that manage successful teams. If you’re looking to help advance your future business leaders, this is the perfect program for you.

Reinforced through mentorship

“Simply adding a star performer to a team boosts the effectiveness of other team members by 5-15%. No wonder, then, that study after study shows stronger financial performance in companies that make proportionally greater investments in identifying and developing top talent.”
