FTI Consulting is committed to accelerating the growth of our current and future leaders at every level throughout their careers. Our leadership programs help our leaders live our values more fully and build and demonstrate FTI Consulting’s competencies with their team members so they can take over and move up, practicing a coaching and sponsorship model for development.
FTI Consulting invests in creating leaders at all levels through our annual milestone programs and Senior Managing Director readiness programs. In addition to the networking and collaboration benefits of these in-person, multiday programs, the course curriculum enhances participants’ strategic intellect, helps them raise their performance to a higher standard and encourages them to grow and empower others to lead every day.
During these multiday, in-person leadership readiness programs, President and Chief Executive Officer Steve Gunby shares a strategic business update with participants, as well as his own insights into what makes a strong leader in professional services. Additionally, members of our Executive Committee, practice leaders and external subject-matter experts share their stories of how they rose to the leadership ranks, provide tangible examples of their own missteps and successes on their path to leadership, and offer one-on-one and group mentorship and coaching opportunities to help participants understand their role in contributing to the firm’s multiyear growth trajectory.
In 2020, 895 employees attended milestone and Senior Managing Director readiness programs, accelerating their effectiveness in their new roles. Since 2017, 140 participants of the Managing Director Leadership Forum and the Women’s Initiative Managing Director Transformational Leadership Program have been promoted to Senior Managing Director.
“Identifying and developing our future leaders is at the very heart of our growth strategy. FTI Consulting believes that the education and coaching of our talent, at all levels, is integral to developing the next generation of experts, which is essential to our continued success and growth.”Kevin Hewitt
Chairman of Europe, the Middle East and Africa
“I really appreciated the opportunity to interact with other global colleagues who had been promoted to Senior Director level and the clarity provided on our roles and responsibilities. With the COVID-19 lockdown, I was unable to interact with senior colleagues or glean insights as I would have been able to do were we still working in an office together. The training equipped me to position myself for a team management, delegation and oversight role and to think much more strategically. I highly recommend it.”Julie Cunningham
Senior Director, Strategic Communications
“It was great learning the perspective of expectations from other Senior Consultants around the firm. The questions and answers helped me to understand the positive value that each segment provides to their clients. Overall, I feel strongly that the milestone program helped to build collaboration among other individuals at FTI Consulting. Thank you to the Talent Development team for providing the opportunity!”Domenic Holt
