About the Programme

Developing as a manager and a leader is a personal journey. You have to experience it and there are no shortcuts. Therefore, putting your newly acquired knowledge and skills into practice and learning from that experience is at the heart of this programme. Gaining insight, adapting your behaviour and changing the way you do things will be the result.

This project based programme of four days, with a cohort of up to ten like-minded participants, will help you to:

  • embed the learning by applying it to the workplace
  • stimulate deep thinking through the constructive challenge of colleagues
  • develop your own support mechanisms through an action learning set
  • put your insights and personal experiences into context

To maximise learning we recommend that you have a live leadership issue, change process, management challenge or performance improvement project you can use to relate the knowledge and skills developed on the programme.
