Future Leaders eXperience


FMI has developed a leadership program that can’t be replicated. The Future Leaders eXperience addresses one of food retail's most challenging emerging issues—the workforce. Organizations need emerging leaders to bring new strategies to life. Future Leaders eXperience offers rising stars a street-smart approach to leadership that will change the way they see themselves, lead their teams and impact business results.

Future Leaders leverages the world-renowned Root Compass leader development system. Root’s disruptive methods use a combination of art and science to create experiences that connect, build and transform. The experience incorporates a variety of disruptive methods like Root Learning Map® experiences, modules, games, films, assessments, relatable character stories, visual exercise, building blocks, role-playing and journaling to keep it fun and uniquely effective. Because our system is memorable and easy to apply, it has higher adoption, noticeable behavior change and an impact on the business right away.

The program is offered as both an annual two-day event that includes additional speakers, cross-industry networking, and celebration of the FMI Store Manager Awards. It is also available as in-house training at your company through the Future Leaders Direct program.
