Developing New Leaders

We continued to invest in developing leaders within Noble Energy through our two established programs, LEAD (Learn, Excel, Achieve and Develop) and Executive LEAD.

In 2016, 68 employees completed the LEAD program and 72 started in the program that will finish in 2017. LEAD is a 12-month program designed for individual contributors, first-level managers and managers of managers. The goal is to accelerate the development of key talent in the organization. The skills graduates acquire in this setting also help them become catalysts for developing others.

The Executive LEAD program for mid- to senior-level leaders parallels the larger program in many ways, but includes elements such as external executive coaches. Executive LEAD participants also serve in the development of LEAD participants. In 2016, 9 leaders completed the program and 12 started the 2016/2017 curriculum.
