IECRM Emerging Leaders Program

Do you aspire to become a leader?

Or, do you have an employee in mind who would thrive in a leadership role, given the right training, tools, and skills?


Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.

— Jack Welch

The IECRM Emerging Leaders Program is a leadership training program that aims to develop the leadership skills of a hand-selected group of individuals from IECRM member companies.
