Senior Executives have tough and demanding roles that can lead them to develop styles and ways of working in a particular organisational culture. The 5-day Effective Leaders Programme allows them to take a step back and reflect on their styles, re-think their approach and gain better insights into what makes an effective leader. Grounded in solid, up-to-date research on what makes an Effective Leader, this is a highly participative course with practical exercises that allow you personalise your learning and keep you actively engaged throughout.

The course will:

  • Increase participants' personal and organisational awareness
  • Improve their strategic, change and leadership capabilities
  • Build participants' resilience as well as revitalise them to face new organisational challenges as they arise
  • Gain better insight into the possible future requirements of the organisation by widening their perspective of the geo-political, social and technological landscape
  • Develop innovative skills to engage others and increase their effectiveness as a leade

Who should attend?

  • Those in top/senior management positions:
  • Senior Civil Servants, Director Generals
  • Chief Executives and Senior Directors of voluntary sector organisations
  • University Vice and Pro-Vice Chancellors
  • Local Authority Chief Executives and Senior Directors
