Johnson & Johnson Human Performance Institute (HPI) announced the expansion of its purpose-driven, character-centered executive development and wellbeing program, Premier Executive Leadership (Premier). HPI will now offer additional forms of its flagship Premier program, customized to cater to the unique needs and demands of the current, and next generation of global leaders. Gathering feedback and insights from CEOs, C-suite leaders and chief human resource officers around the globe, HPI uncovered an unmet need for highly personalized executive development programs that build and reinforce physical wellbeing, mental and emotional resilience, and character-centered leadership. This new offering expands upon the official launch of Premier last year.
“The role of C-suite leaders has changed dramatically, even in just the last 12 to 36 months. We see it in the news every day; the demands are both greater and far different than ever before. Leaders must drive results faster, be more accessible and fully energized for all stakeholders, be more authentic and be prepared to engage and lead on key social issues. We are hearing from companies that are seeking solutions that go beyond traditional executive development and coaching, that address a leader’s overall wellbeing, resilience and character strength. The Premier suite of programs addresses the unmet needs in the marketplace,” said Lowinn Kibbey, Global Head, Johnson & Johnson Human Performance Institute. “Our programs are unique because we take a holistic approach, incorporating coaching to help executives better manage the physical and psychological demands of their jobs, proactively to enable each leader to unleash performance through their best self.”
The goal of Premier is to reinforce senior leaders and help them build personal resilience and character-centered leadership competencies that go beyond basic business skills-building. The highly confidential experience is delivered by a team of three coaches, personalized to meet executives where they are, when they need it and on their own terms.
“The Premier program addresses the unique challenges executive leaders and CEOs face, equipping them with the necessary resources to access that sweet spot between leading a healthy, balanced life and sustaining high performance,” commented Steve Cunanan, Chief People and Administrative Officer, Kindred Healthcare. “Witnessing the incredible positive impact the program brings to bear has been transformational in how we prepare our most senior leaders.”
The flagship program includes personalized 1:1 coaching with a registered dietician, an executive coach and an exercise physiologist; a two-and-a-half-day Performance training session with assessments in key areas including resilience, character strength, wellbeing and energy; family engagement, and 360 stakeholder feedback throughout. The expanded program offering, including variations on the flagship program which last between six and nine months, can be further customized for executives based on their needs.
