Welcome to TPRA's Leadership Ladders©.  Originally developed by TPRA's Women in TPRM "Lead" work group, this training activity is designed for all current and aspiring leaders within the Third Party Risk Management (TPRM) industry.  Each box on the board below is linked to a valuable resource–including customized guides, blogs, videos, quizzes, and more–with the goal of enhancing your leadership potential through buildable skills and expert insights. Any professional, regardless of what stage they're at in their career, can find value in this activity. 

How to Operate

To start your leadership journey, follow these simple steps:

  1. Start at the first square for a brief overview video.

  2. Click the text on the next square to open and review your first resource.

  3. Follow the numbers within each square as you discover a variety of resources which build on one another to give you a well-rounded and developed grasp on key leadership topics and skills.

  4. Hidden throughout the game are short Scenarios with multiple-choice answers. Choose correctly, thereby proving your leadership savviness, and you might be able to skip ahead a few squares. Choose wrong and you may find yourself needing a refresher on an earlier topic.

  5. Complete all the boxes, reach the end, and click the last square for a congratulatory video!
