Want to groom a rising star employee to help lead your company into tomorrow? Then have them apply today to participate in Center for Growing Talent Emerging Leaders Program, which will get under way in March. CGT will once again partner with University of Arizona’s Eller College of Management to conduct this eight-month program only for the fresh produce and floral industry. Apply before the Feb. 1 deadline, as this program typically sells out.
“Our companies and our industry are facing a massive talent challenge, worse than many other industries. To attract, develop and retain the talent your company needs to succeed, make leadership development a priority,” said CGT Board of Directors Chair Marty Craner, president of B&C Sales.
The Emerging Leaders Program is designed specifically to groom young industry professionals who have exceptional potential. This rigorous, multifaceted program equips these promising leaders with both a big picture business framework and the hands-on, real world techniques they will need to work with and lead others to drive your organization’s — and our industry’s — future success. By the end of the program, participants will have honed their leadership competencies in core business functional areas, and be ready to address industry issues.
