High potentials: training tomorrow's top managers
High fliers are, by definition, the future of any company and are looked after with special care by HR departments. However initiatives designed to promote loyalty among high potentials tend to be expensive and insufficiently individualised. It is also difficult to make them accessible worldwide.
CrossKnowledge has developed considerable expertise in the development of high potentials, with individualised e-learning packages that elicit high levels of learner satisfaction, ensure 100 % company-wide coverage, and generate large cost savings.
- Corporate MBA: upskilling programmes for high potentials with a view to providing them with a managerial culture. These programmes feature business cases; coaching; on-line courses in strategy, finance, marketing, management and personal development; assessments, etc.
- Personalised development needs assessment and custom training paths: thanks to an exclusive solution called CrossKnowledge Development Center, high potentials can develop self-knowledge, discover their motivations, their strong points and areas for improvement, and have access to a 100 % individualised suite of learning resources they can follow at their own pace. Assessment reviews can also be carried out with the help of an on-line coach.
- On-line learning communities: similar to YouTube, this community portal makes it possible to share, rank, and comment on content and express views on the implementation of the programme. Alumni remain in a learning scenario, deepening both their relationships with each other and their attachment to the company.
- Certificate courses: CrossKnowledge offers executive programmes certified by ILM and supported on line by a teacher or coach, which focus on the development of particular skills via real life experiences (running a project, bringing in a new recruit, heading up a new team, etc). These courses, are especially well suited to high fliers whose continuing loyalty is at a premium.
