Boston Scientific’s Neuromodulation sales organization identified a need to equip its emerging leaders with leadership skills so they could be more influential among key accounts.
We created two programs to run simultaneously for Boston Scientific: a Clinical Specialist Training course and an Emerging Leaders Training course, each lasting nine months. The course designs included three live sessions (spaced 60 days apart), with experiential learning activities spaced in between to reinforce course learning.
Both leadership journeys provided a foundational leadership development experience, with each session carefully designed to ensure the adult learning experience. After each module was presented, participants were given an opportunity to reflect on and discuss the module in relation to their role. Experiential activities, such as learning games and role-play scenarios, were presented throughout the live sessions to enhance the learning continuum.
Participants were asked to provide feedback regarding the quality, relevance, and value of the course. The feedback says it all.

"Lead Star played a critical role in training our mid-level leaders. The curriculum the Lead Star team designed was consistent with our culture, which ensured that the entire experience was relevant and engaging.
