    New and experienced team leaders who oversee front line contributors; currently or in the near future.


    Join us on an 18-month learning journey and practice key skills to lead others, communicate effectively and build a resilient and efficient team.

    • Attend four multi-day, in-person workshops, supplemented with engaging, online sessions to review best practices and stay connected.
    • Enjoy content and format developed and delivered by an expert FCCS team well-versed in adult learning and professional development, enhanced by outside experts and thought leaders, and informed by our clients and two Client Advisory Boards.
    • Enjoy an experiential learning adventure that strengthens teamwork and leadership.
    • Deliver real-world results by applying what you learn – we’ll meet with you and your manager to define desired outcomes and plan opportunities that will reinforce your new skills.

    Session 1: LeaderShift and Courage
    At the core of the shift from team member to team leader is the relationships you have with the handful of people who report directly to you. Learn to build trust and performance through honest, caring feedback. You’ll receive your 360 Profilor® results and build a Personal Learning Strategy which will help focus your development journey.

    Session 2: Team Growth and Empowerment
    Develop your team members through meaningful connections and the right coaching. You’ll practice situational leadership SLII®, to improve your one on ones and empower your team. Then be inspired by an industry visionary sharing future trends in finance. Share ideas about what future skills your team may need to meet your customer’s changing world. AND identify opportunities for your own growth.

    Session 3: Culture and Results
    Today’s teams are different from the teams of the past: They’re far more diverse, dispersed, digital, and dynamic. Support their success by increased team collaboration through a compelling direction, a strong structure, and a supportive context. Learn ways to counteract biases that impact how all of us lead and make decisions.

    Session 4: Trust and Inclusion
    Team members do their best when they feel safe to speak up, share ideas and admit mistakes. Get one on one coaching from master facilitators on how to run inclusive meetings. Build trust as you use the Carrot Principle to acknowledge your team member’s efforts meaningfully. Celebrate with your peers at a capstone dinner with senior leaders.
