Programme Overview


How you learn


Leadership reflection

Before the programme begins, you will consider how others see you as a leader. Key colleagues in your business are asked to submit an online 360-degree review of your style, and you undertake a NEO personality exercise. During the programme, you will consider your purpose and your key strengths through a 1Self assessment. On the basis of these findings you gain a deeper understanding of your strengths, your preferred style and personal skills to form the basis of an on-going action plan.


A personalised experience

Practically apply your learning to your own business challenge throughout the programme. You return to work with the practical tools for immediate impact. Post-programme you benefit from ‘checking-in’ with your peers, programme team and executive coaches to track real business impact..


Innovative learning methods

Through an experiential ‘outdoor day’, you discover how your leadership style responds to new challenges and how to transfer that experience into a work context. Working with coaches one-on-one and in small groups you further develop your strengths to confidently go further as a leader. Our integrated well-being curriculum offers a range of physical activities, but also provides awareness sessions around routines, sleep, posture and nutrition.
