Flagship Programmes

Encompassing the Emerging Leaders Programme, these experiences offer unparalleled leadership development and industry mentoring.

Looking for leadership development that goes the distance?

Do you want to build your leadership capabilities and strengthen your enduring bonds in the property industry?

Look, we get it.
You’re relatively new to the property industry and want to get your foot in the door. 
Maybe you’re asking yourself:

👉🏻 How can I further develop the critical skills needed for leadership in the property industry? 

👉🏽 How can I find an experienced industry leader who is willing to actively support me?

👉🏿 How can I extend my network beyond my immediate company and clients?

There’s just one thing standing in your way:
There’s no one to facilitate this kind of conversation, no place to go if you’re new and looking for support
…or is there?

Meet the Emerging Leaders Programme

The Emerging Leaders Programme is a robust leadership development experience that brings together proven approaches to leadership development and experienced industry leaders to guide mentees on the path to career success.

 Innovative organisations know that long-term success requires a pipeline of emerging leaders who can be better equipped to take on new challenges.

It was with this ethos the Property Council Emerging Leaders Programme (ELP) kicked off in 2019 as an exclusive opportunity for Property Council members to enhance industry knowledge through shared experience.

In conjunction with our Programme Partner, JLL, we have built upon the original mentoring programme and crafted a highly personalised year-long leadership development experience for programme participants, featuring:

👉🏻 An immersive in-person Emerging Leaders kick-off in Auckland.

👉🏼  Monthly individual meetings with an experienced industry mentor committed to your success. Emerging Leaders and mentors will be paired for the year to enable a robust and enduring professional relationship.

👉🏽  Three Emerging Leaders ‘lunch and learns’ throughout the year on critical leadership capabilities in today’s property market.

👉🏿 Our online Hono community with self-paced weekly group chats facilitated by Property Council, that focus on self-reflection and clarity regarding professional goals.

👉🏻 Career coaching sessions with Property Council DevelopU leadership at six-month and nine-month intervals.

👉🏼 An opportunity to attend one complimentary Future Directions networking event in Auckland.

👉🏽 The programme culminates in a celebratory wrap-up.

Note: While we strongly encourage in-person participation for the programme kick-off, there will be an opportunity to participate online for the opening session and ‘lunch and learn’ sessions throughout the year.
