Programme Outline

APPLICATION

The Engaged Leadership Programme is orientated to enabling practical change; participants will be expected to implement the ideas into their day-to-day work and lives. We support and challenge participants to apply the learning via 1 to 1 coaching, peer group coaching and exercises throughout the programme. This is all designed to achieve a tangible difference in the context of your specific business reality.

PERSONAL INSIGHTS

We conduct a 360 feedback survey and gather insight from two psychometric surveys at the outset, meeting one-to-one with you to review before of the first group session. This provides you with an immediate and precise awareness of the most important areas - strengths and potential blindspots - on which to focus. These set the basis for a personal plan of action to be developed and applied through the programme. We possess particular expertise in applying insight from psychometric surveys, gaining a more sophisticated insight than standard approaches, including; behavioural style, mindsets, values, capacities, quality of motivation, productive habits (ambition, commitment, awareness, agility), counterproductive habits and more. These insights enable you to focus objectively on the most critical areas that will enhance your leadership impact.

STRUCTURE

The programme runs over seven months. It comprises of: - Insight from psychometric assessments and 360 feedback, conducted before the first group session, - Twelve half-day learning modules, some combined into a full day of learning and, - Three individual coaching sessions at the beginning, middle and conclusion of the programme. This includes an initial review of the 360 survey results and psychometric surveys.
