11 November 2016 2 min. read

North Highland has partnered with the Executive Education arm of US-based Emory University. The collaboration will see the creation of a tailored programme to develop the firm’s internal talent through an “E3” model, focused on combining education, exposure and experience.

The Emory University’s Goizueta Business School runs the Emory Executive Education programme, to support participants develop a comprehensive leadership skillset. Future leadership has become a more pressing issue for business, as competition heats up to pick off the best – recent study highlights that 91% of companies expect at least some increase in competition. As the competition for talent increases, more and more companies are planning to build from within.

North Highland partners with Emory University for tailored leadership programme

North Highland, a US-headquartered management consulting firm with over 1,000 employees in 25 offices globally, has announced that the firm has partnered with the Emory Executive Education to develop a tailored leadership development programme for its workforce – forming one element of the firm’s wider commitment to build the potential of its staff and their respective talents.

The programme will, based on the firm's proprietary “E3” model, focus on three areas: education, exposure and experience, to strengthen the theoretical, situational and practical sides of everyday leadership. The programme involves a ‘best-in-class’ adult learning model, with participants offered a range of learning environments to develop their skills.

Emory's Senior Associate Dean for Executive Education, JB Kurish, explains, “Emory brings a holistic approach to leadership development that equips executives with a full complement of elevated skills essential to bringing about meaningful organisational change.”

Anne Game, a Managing Director at North Highland, remarks about the programme that it advances the firm's ability to professionalise career and leadership development in a tailored fashion that builds the firm from within. “We are thrilled to offer this program to our employee-owners and provide them with resources and experiences to help grow their careers, competencies and contributions and know that our partnership with Emory University will help us offer best-in-class learning,” she adds.
