The ELBP Curriculum aims to provide the participants with a deep understanding of critical business functions, equip the participants with the knowledge and skills to become transformational leaders and enable the participants to develop skills that accelerate their growth to reach the next level.

Emerging Leader Booster Program (ELBP) is SOIL’s flagship program for developing high-potential mid to senior functional leaders who have been identified by their organizations to take on higher responsibilities. ELBP was co-created in 2010 by a group of companies who strongly felt the need to create a world class program to develop their high potential leaders. The companies participate in curriculum design, appoint representatives on the ELBP consortia board to review the progress and nominate leaders for participation.
