Four Seasons has long recognised the need to promote people from within and to have programmes designed to thoughtfully and strategically develop a workforce of high-performing managers worldwide.
New Manager Orientation (NMO)
Four Seasons provides a tailored, management-specific orientation for all managers who are either new to Four Seasons or newly promoted from within. This programme has six components, designed to give new managers the skills and tools needed to succeed in their new role.
STEPS – On the path to managing oneself and others
The STEPS programme is designed to enhance the leadership skills of new managers or supervisors, and to develop their abilities to manage themselves and their teams in the workplace. The programme has six sequential modules that focus on different aspects of leadership in the Four Seasons context.

- Development experiences and assignment
- Guidance or mentorship
- Self-directed learning
- Management Development Programme (MDP)
- Online learning initiatives
