Lead Charger Series: CLIMB Lead & Construct Modules

Programme Code: CRS-N-0046073


In collaboration with Talent Plus, SMU Academy has developed the CLIMB Programme for SMEs' leadership. The programme is designed to groom emerging leaders with an integrated view of management fundamentals to lead and manage effectively for digital transformations, change management, sustainable growth and profitability. There is a total of 6 modules in the programme.

The Lead module offers a fresh approach that trains participants how to capitalise on the two most essential assets a leader has at his or her disposal:

1) his or her leadership talents and strengths and
2) the talents and strengths of the people who comprise the organisation.

It addresses the core issues related to talent management through scientific methods of talent profiling, nurturing and thereby ensuring performance and retention. The takeaways from this module help learners to create and sustain a high-impact leadership within their organisations.

Using proven Talent Plus® science and methodology as the foundation, the programme continues with the Construct module. The module trains you to spot, place, develop and retain top talent and identify the natural gifts of team members to make the most of their strengths for individual and organisational success. Competencies can be taught; talent is innate and the greater the investment in developing its full potential, the further an organisation’s leaders can accelerate positive business outcomes.

This module is part of CLIMB Programme.
