This Senior Leadership & Management Development Programme is designed for senior managers and leaders who want to develop themselves as leaders and managers, who recognise they have to satisfy various stakeholders and also want to invest in their own personal brand.

They may manage day to day operations and activities, and in doing so seek to make best use of their resources, understand the need to innovate and have a constant awareness of the need to optimise performance.

They may also have to present arguments for change, construct business cases, lead change implementation and evaluate the impact of that change. These are the leaders/managers who will benefit from this qualification.

What is required of you to take part in the programme – developing your leadership capability?

Becoming a more effective leader involves delegates in a complex process of changing behaviours, based on an understanding of leadership and on the development of a range of personal and interpersonal skills.

Simply understanding what leadership involves, or developing insight into the effect of one’s own emotional state or values on decision-making, or being good at communicating with others is not sufficient, although each is a necessary component of any leadership role.

It is the synthesis of this that enables effective leaders to recognise the effect of their own behaviours on other people and on the organisation, and to manage those behaviours to achieve the goals that they have agreed.

Our Senior Leadership & Management Development Programme places great emphasis on developing this ability; if you are to continue to improve your performance beyond the programme itself – hence the results driven focus.

This is an important characteristic of all successful leaders that they can reflect on their experiences and learn from them – effective leaders are not afraid of making mistakes, only of repeating mistakes.

This ability, to learn and develop, is integral to the Senior Leadership & Management Development Programme.
