How can we ensure you meet your full potential?

To enable our next generation of leaders, Minor Hotels works to identify a number of our most talented individuals and empower them with high-impact career coaching, training and support in achieving individually determined objectives. See a brief overview of our three Leadership Journeys and stories from three recent participants:


Ascent is open to new hospitality management graduates. This journey fast tracks graduate to their preferred career destination. Following a 6-month rotation through all hotel departments at the Assistant Manager level, Ascent trainees spend another 12-months specializing in one department as an Assistant Department Head.


Endeavour aims to support the development of our internal high potential, high performing Heads of Department within the Minor Hotels team. After nomination by General Managers and a selection process, the Endeavour leaders grow with us on a journey of 9 months through a combination of on-the-job learning, coaching, peer learning in group sessions, leadership development and three projects focusing on customer service, a corporate social responsibility event and revenue maximization. A formal assessment of their growth takes place at the end of their journey and thereafter they are ready to move into their next role in their career.


Horizon is open to high performing, high potential leaders in number two roles in Minor hotels. After nomination by General Managers and a selection process, the participants embark on a custom-designed journey of 9 months following a road-map of growth merging learning via participation in special projects and leadership development supported by coaching and peer learning. In addition, Horizon leaders complete three projects on customer service, a sustainable corporate social responsibility partnership and revenue maximization.  A formal assessment of their growth takes place at the end of their journey and thereafter they are ready to take on the challenge of their next career step.

    "The Horizon Journey had many “eye openers” for myself. The programme was a great tool to understand how vital it is to reach out and collaborate with other colleagues and team members to gather new innovative ways to plan and achieve your results. It also ensured the importance and effectiveness of appropriate coaching and leadership."
