Emerging Leaders Program


NATCO Emerging Leaders Program
2025 Applications Now open!

Developing a strong and healthy leadership pipeline starts with your first-time supervisors, managers and new leaders, and is critical to the success of your organization's business strategy.

Emerging or high-potential leaders are just starting out on their leadership journey. The role of the emerging leader and the first-level leader has always been a challenge. People skills typically account for 80 percent of success in this role. Yet many of these people are promoted because of their clinical and technical capabilities. Both new and experienced first-level leaders can struggle when it comes to excelling at leading teams in today's workplace.

Emerging leaders need to learn more about being a leader
New team leaders need the foundation of leadership
Front-line leaders need to be equipped with basic skills and tools   

NATCO recognizes the challenges that organizations in our community have in meeting the training and development needs of the talented front-line staff and future leaders in our Organ Procurement Organizations, Hospitals, and Transplant Programs. That is why we have partnered with FranklinCovey, a recognized, world leader in helping organizations achieve results that require lasting changes in human behavior.

The creation of this Emerging Leaders Program was designed to combine the proven leadership solutions designed by FranklinCovey with the trusted educational solutions provided by NATCO. It is specifically designed to establish new mindsets and build new skillsets using proven applications and principle-centered content.

The success of the Emerging Leaders Program is based on a commitment from the individual participant and the participant's supervisor or manager. The program calls for a collaboration between the program facilitators and the participant and the supervisor/manager over a period of one year.
