Investing in employee development pays dividends in more ways than one – reduced cost to hire, higher employee engagement, more efficiency, higher productivity, company loyalty, and improved team morale are just a few ways your company benefits from growing and developing its next generation talent. This program is designed to prepare your high-potential future leaders to their future roles, using a focused, collaborative and intentional development planning process.

The IDP Cohort approach blends the best of a peer group learning environment, with personalized coaching, plus a skills, behavior and interests assessments to create a robust development plan specifically for your company’s high-potential employees and next generation leaders.
  • Have a shipping supervisor who aspires to be the production planner and materials buyer?
  • An apprentice who you believe has potential to become your next Mold Maker?
  • An operator who wants to become your shift lead or set-up person?
  • Or even an apprentice who wants to return to school part time to pursue engineering and become your future head of engineering … or pursue quality and lean certifications to grow into the quality director role?
The combinations of current role and potential future role are endless, and the approach we take is personalized to accommodate each of them. Applicable at any and all levels – skills learned with the cohort are applicable to all, while the assessments, individual development planning and personalized coaching are targeted at each participants unique development needs.

The program begins with a skills and interests assessment and engages the participant and his or her leader(s) in productive development discussions through which professional aspirations are explored and professional development goals are set. The development coach will have 1:1 dialogs with the participant and the company leaders involved, in order to gain additional input to ensure all parties perspectives are incorporated into the Individual Development Plan (IDP) and all goals can be met. The participant is then guided by development coaches and takes ownership for working on his or her IDP goals each quarter. Periodic, short development updates / consultation sessions onsite at your business with leadership to check and adjust the IDP are integrated into the program.

Additionally, participants meet monthly on the last Tuesday of every month for a half-day each  March through November at the TMA to engage in shared learning experiences that benefit the entire cohort. Topics such as foundation of functional teams, communicating with impact and influencing others, conflict management and more will be offered, and topics will be adjusted to meet the needs of the cohort once formed.

Classroom time will also be used to debrief assessments that they all participants will take as part of the class – DISC, MBTI, Prevue Assessment, TKI, and others. Each tool is valuable to each person individually and collectively for the cohort as they experience them.
