This high-impact residential programme will give leaders a crystal clear, 360 degree view of their strengths and development areas, using a globally recognised leadership framework from thought leaders Kouzes and Posner.

You will have the opportunity to receive one-to-one coaching and support from a facilitator in understanding your profile. They will help you to develop a personal leadership development plan to implement when you return to the workplace.

The Benefits of a Residential Course

Why is this a residential course?
We believe it allows you to continue your learning in a relaxed way (one of the exercises is carried out over dinner with the facilitators), it builds your network with other senior business leaders and encourages all in sharing knowledge and experience with fellow delegates.

It also means that the facilitators can give you the one-to-one coaching and feedback in a relaxed environment.

Suitable for department heads and senior managers who work cross-functionally. It is also valuable for high potential individuals on the fast track to promotion. You will need to deliver results through the effective management of people.

By the end of this course you will be able to:

  • Understand your personal leadership strengths and limitations, and connect your own personal values with those of your organization.
  • Recognise the impact of your personal actions and behaviors on those around you.
  • Identify and build on your strengths and the areas you want to develop in.
  • Identify how to develop and manage relationships with others, building their commitment to the success of the organization.
  • Develop your skills in building coaching relationships with others to maximize their impact on the organization.

There is a pre-course work assignment for this course which will take no more than an hour. In addition, you will be required to undertake mandatory LPI 360-degree feedback which must be completed at least 2 weeks prior to course start date.
