North Highland, Executive Education launch leadership development program

ATLANTA– Management consulting firm North Highland is pleased to announce its partnership with Emory Executive Education, a program within Emory University’s Goizueta Business School, to launch the firm’s first comprehensive leader development program for its workforce as part of an ongoing commitment to continuing leadership development within the firm.

The North Highland program emphasizes an “E3” model of education, exposure and experience, leveraging innovative and best-in-class adult learning models. Participants will have opportunities for classroom-style learning, online exercises, speaking/networking events, on-the-job application and other modules.

“With our approach to this program, we are continuing to professionalize career and leadership development in a tailored fashion that builds from within,” said Anne Game, North Highland Managing Director and Atlanta Market Lead. “We are thrilled to offer this program to our employee-owners and provide them with resources and experiences to help grow their careers, competencies and contributions and know that our partnership with Emory University will help us offer best-in-class learning.”

“Emory brings a holistic approach to leadership development that equips executives with a full complement of elevated skills essential to bringing about meaningful organizational change,” said JB Kurish, Senior Associate Dean for Executive Education.

The program will initially be open to employee-owners in the firm’s Atlanta headquarters with prospective plans to expand to other offices throughout North Highland’s network in the future. The inaugural class will kick off in October 2016, followed by a formal graduation ceremony in January 2017.
