A powerful one-day leadership development workshop

NEW Career Booster is a unique one-day workshop designed for women and men who want to build their leadership skills and push their career to the next level. NEW Career Booster workshops are hosted by NEW partner companies across North America and open to all.

Like all NEW leadership development programs, NEW Career Booster is based on the NEW Career Accelerator Model, created in partnership with the Center for Creative Leadership, which outlines the eight competencies and five derailers that can make or break a career.

NEW Career Booster offers

  • Self-assessment to gain greater awareness of leadership style, emotional intelligence* and areas for development
  • Strategies for maximizing job-related strengths, improving workplace interactions and boosting confidence to pursue career goals
  • A network of industry peers to help you navigate work/life challenges

* Emotional intelligence, or EQ, consists of emotional and social skills that influence the way we perceive and express ourselves, develop and maintain social relationships, cope with challenges and use emotional information in an effective and meaningful way.

Who should attend
Emerging leaders, mid-level managers and high-potential women and men who want to improve their emotional intelligence, strengthen their leadership skills and advance their careers. NEW Career Booster is an excellent precursor to NEW Rising Stars or follow-up program for mid-level leaders.
