This feature of CEO Insights spotlights local companies that are “Economic Champions” because of their success in adding jobs; expanding their products or services; advancing diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives; gaining national recognition or contributing to the success of the region in special ways.

Emergent, a Syracuse-based leadership development firm, continues to raise the consciousness and performance of leaders in Central New York and beyond. Its team of Certified Professional Coaches offers services to improve business productivity and job satisfaction. Through authentic relationships and a focus on holistic growth, Emergent leaves lasting impacts on the individuals and organizations it serves.

One-on-one coaching and group seminars are central to Emergent’s programming. LeadFORWARD, a flagship offering, guides senior leaders through an immersive course to catalyze growth in their organizations. Leader as Coach, Emergent’s newest program, helps leaders understand their role as coaches and mentors.

With clients around the world and speaking engagements across the country, Emergent’s impact extends beyond Central New York. But the team remains committed to thriving right here in Syracuse; 2022 and 2023 saw two exceptional coaches join Emergent, as well as the expansion of its offices at 100 Clinton Square.

In November 2023, Emergent won in the Consultant Category at the Association for Talent Development’s (ATD) CNY Best Awards for their work on Emergent Leader. This great honor affirms Emergent’s purpose to help leaders discover their strengths, emerge from the ordinary to the extraordinary, and transform themselves and their organizations.

The team strives to impact diverse leaders by improving accessibility and reaching underserved populations. Emergent Leader, now in its fourth year, provides leadership training to leaders with untapped potential. Through scholarships supported by local foundations and the flexibility of a virtual option, Emergent Leader has made high-quality leadership training available to a wide range of leaders. Its next iteration will be held in May in Rome, New York.
