Accelerating the impact of your business's top performers and executives

  • Develop high-achieving individuals in your organisation
  • Provide them with the tools, skills, and confidence they need to succeed in leadership positions
  • Ensure their retention in the business with the investment of Hi-Po

Research has found that 70% of todays high-performers lack the critical attributes essential for future success

One in every four high-potential employees has been known to leave the business within a year of joining due to a lack of development and training.

SME business owners struggle to develop the next generation as they rise through the ranks, often failing to recognise high performers.

We tend to make misguided assumptions about our high performers often either taking no action or taking action that may even hinder their development.

As business owners we often make misguided assumptions about our high performers, either failing to take action or taking actions that actually hinder their development.

Both inevitably lead to negative outcomes for the business and may cause unnecessary turbulence when key players start seeking out alternative opportunities with adequate development opportunities.

Hi-Po addresses this issue by taking on the responsibility of preparing your top talent for the businesses biggest problems

Invest in your business by elevating your employees, leading to better business performance and growth potential. The two-year programme focuses on key topics to encourage practical implementation, and keep executives engaged for long-term success.

The following individuals will benefit from Hi-Po:

  • ​High-impact, top-performing individuals
  • ​Senior executives
  • ​Senior middle managers with 3 – 10 years of experience

While individual participants are welcome, it is beneficial for several Hi-Po managers within the same organisations to come together to create a joint impact.

Your team will learn to embrace and excel in leadership positions

The High Potential (Hi-Po) Management Programme has one clear intention: to achieve significant improvements in your teams performance by helping your key players reach their full potential and engagement levels.

Our two-year training and development programme is designed to prepare high-performing individuals for the challenges, and opportunities, that arise in new leadership roles through a suite of resources and training including monthly mentorship (both virtual and physical), leadership development access to The Academy, and strategic planning.

The individuals who show the most potential in your business require the correct guidance and nurture to thrive. The Hi-Po programme, led by industry experts, provides access to the best business minds in the market.

The programme breakdown: An entire suite of resources and tools available for long-term success

 12 Training Modules & Workshops

(held every two months)

Over the course of two years, our programme places emphasis on developing twelve essential leadership and management competencies, through immersive in-person training.

Participants will acquire the skills necessary to make well-informed decisions, effectively navigate organisational change, strategically communicate, and inspire their teams to success.

 Access to The Academy training vault

(on-the-go digital learning)

Your executives will also gain access to The Academy, a knowledge bank with over two hundred hours of tailored content in the form of an online training platform.

Your executives will have dynamic training modules to complete and catch up on outside of the classroom, with access to a wide range of useful downloads and templates.

 12 Live Coaching Calls

(virtual, held every two months)

To ensure optimal implementation and accountability, we have scheduled twelve live coaching calls in between each physical workshop.

The subjects covered in these coaching calls are thoroughly detailed and engaging, making them an excellent opportunity for participants to maximise their learning experience, and leverage collective intelligence.

 Certificate of Achievement

(awarded upon completion of the programme)

Completing the course not only equips participants with essential leadership and management skills but also presents them with tangible proof of their accomplishment.

A course completion certificate is a document that formally recognises and acknowledges a participant's successful completion of a programme. It serves as a validation of their hard work and effort.

Studies show 21% of employees are "highly disengaged

Highly disengaged employees, who are typically high-potential individuals, pose a significant challenge for companies as their discretionary effort can be up to 50% lower than that of their colleagues with average engagement.

To prevent this issue, it is imperative for companies to invest in their employees, especially their rising stars, and equip them with the necessary tools, skills, and confidence to tackle the company's most significant challenges.

Identifying and recognising these high-potential employees early on is crucial for keeping them engaged and motivated. Once you have identified these individuals, have them attend our High-Potential Management Programme.
