The senior leadership development programme

Custom designed:

Quality, in-house training for your organisation’s needs


The quality of your leadership team is the single most important factor determining the success of your organisation. This Leadership Development Programme gives leaders the opportunity to develop insights about what leadership really is and how they actually measure up to world class standards. Critically, there is considerable focus on ensuring that personal insights are translated into actions that are carried out back in the workplace.

Creating a bespoke leadership programme:

Clients often ask us to run this day’s training as the first module of a comprehensive  programme including modules such as “Performance coaching and mentoring”, “Leading and Developing Teams”, “Managing Change” and “Action Learning Sets”


The senior leadership development programme

"Some bosses assume they have leadership skills on the basis they have risen to the top. This is often an unwarranted assumption." (John Adair)

Training Style:

Interactive, enjoyable  and thought provoking. The workshop uses inputs from the course leader, group and individual exercises, and simulated interviews.
