TRUIST Emerging Leaders Certification

The Truist Emerging Leaders Certification focuses on the self-awareness necessary to lead others more effectively. After completing the program, participants will be equipped with practical tools and strategies for overcoming leadership shortcomings discovered during the sessions. The Truist Leadership Model serves as the foundation of this highly interactive certification program. Participants learn that their beliefs drive their behaviors and ultimately impact their results. They also identify their Leadership Purpose, a working statement defining their leadership goals and objectives. Following the certification, participants receive a summary document that details their leadership strengths, communication preferences, and blind spots.
