New talent program aimed at accelerating the growth of high performers across Australia

Colliers has brought together 24 aspiring future leaders from across the country in the first stage of a new development program aimed at accelerating the growth of high performing individuals.

The ASPIRE future leaders program is a 12 month program designed to help accelerate careers and maximise the potential of future leaders at Colliers Australia.

24 participants, from associate director to national director level, representing a variety of service lines, recently came together from across the country for an inperson training session.

“ASPIRE aims to develop future leaders in our workplace who are identified as high potential and high performing individuals,” Suzi Colless, Colliers’ Director of People and Performance, said. “The program aims for delegates to identify personal leadership strengths and use it to further accelerate their success and lead others to do the same.”

Designed by Colliers' Australia Capability & Talent Management team, ASPIRE is part of a wider leadership and management program catering to the development of Colliers’ people across clients, projects, and people.

Also part of the three-tired broader program are AMPLIFY, a range of sessions for emerging people managers to ‘amplify’ their management skills and ADVANCE, a program for senior people managers to ‘advance’ their senior management skills.

“The program primarily focusses on emotional intelligence (EI),” Raminta Kymantas, Colliers’ Manager of Capability & Talent, said. “We first need to lead ourselves, before we can lead our clients, stakeholders, projects and teams, so a big focus of the program is developing our EI and how to optimise it to form better working relationships.”
