Premier Management Development Series (PMDS)

2024 Registration is CLOSED.

The WICT Network Rocky Mountain is excited to announce the return of the Virtual Premier Management Development Series in 2024, which WCIT National has recognized for our Leadership Programming quality. This year, The WICT Network Rocky Mountain, The WICT Network MidWest, and Mendez Coaching have collaborated to create an interactive, personalized learning program featuring key topics that contribute to the professional growth of leaders at all levels.

The Premier Management Development Series is designed to develop:

  • High potential or experienced supervisors and managers with direct reports looking to hone their skills
  • Emerging managers or project managers who lead cross-functional teams
  • Individual contributors desiring to strengthen their leadership skills and move into management roles

Program Benefits:

  • Learn from experienced, knowledgeable coaches and trainers and practice leadership skills that can be applied immediately to help excel as a leadership role model in your organization and community
  • Develop a personal action plan to focus on applying new knowledge and skills so you get the most from the program investment
  • Connect with fellow leaders from the industry and build relationships for peer-to-peer support outside the classroom for your entire career
  • Optimize individual performance and organizational impact while achieving new levels of confidence and success
  • Highlight personal brand and enhance your leadership confidence

In 2024, we are offering two groups to ensure we meet the needs of the program participants:

  • Group 1 is offered for new and emerging organization leaders
  • Group 2 is offered for experienced leaders with direct reports

At the start of the program, each participant will have a 30-minute one-on-one call with a facilitator to cover the program overview and discuss expectations and participant’s people management experience for group placement.

Throughout the six-month program, participants will engage in nine virtual sessions designed to increase their skills and ability to inspire confidence, influence others, and increase career mobility.

In addition to the virtual learning sessions, participants will have eight peer-to-peer coaching pods designed to go deeper into the learning topics and build new peer connections and support.

For 2024, all classes will be virtual.

  • Each applicant must have leadership approval and support to participate in the program.
  • Registration and payment must be submitted by March 29, 2024, for consideration into the program.
