NextGen Center is creating and sustaining a community that fosters growth, development, and transformational awareness of self for the next generation of leaders, so that they are better prepared to navigate their life-long personal and professional journeys, as well as the journeys of those whom they touch.
- There is no cookie-cutter manual for success.
- Professional and leadership development is personal.
- Transitions from contributor to leader are often harder than they need to be.
- Young professionals want development opportunities, and often look to their organizations to provide it.
- Organizations believe in supporting and investing in future leaders, but often don't prioritize it.

NextGen Center provides professional development programs that teach vital tools and create experiences for transformational growth. Programs that help participants develop the “soft skills” of business – the people side of things.
We know that the soft skills of business are sometimes considered more “art” than “science.” But here’s what we also know:
Care. Providing development opportunities for emerging leaders demonstrates commitment in their future.
Skills. Providing development opportunities for emerging leaders provides them with new insights and tools to develop themselves, and then the others they lead, more effectively.
Growth. Providing development opportunities for emerging leaders helps them tap into the best of their abilities, helps them grow, and ultimately helps organizations succeed.
What does leadership mean? What does it mean to be a leader?
The answer is personal, and often open to interpretation. But we believe that leadership is unique to each individual. And in order to lead, you must be able to tap into the best of your abilities and potential, in order to bring out the best of the abilities and potential of those who follow you.
Experiences of this kind are often targeted for Senior Leaders in organizations who have resources to support it. But NextGen Center was created because everyone should have access to such resources.
If we could all do better, put ourselves in environments to continually grow, and communicate and lead more effectively we’d all be in a better place in our careers.
We spend 35% of our waking hours at work. Why not make it a fulfilling experience for everyone?
We want those with whom we partner to make a difference through continual development and use their talents to create and sustain great workplace experiences, teams, and organizations.
