Developing the Next Generation of Leaders


This programme is designed and delivered specifically to develop the ‘next generation’ of leaders, those that have been identified as having leadership potential. It provides practising and potential leaders with an in-depth understanding of the skills, qualities and best practices required to become an effective leader.

This programme is less about the theory and more about making learning as practical and experiential as possible. Delegates will be expected to demonstrate the application of their learning in order to add value to the organisation more quickly as well as seek feedback from key stakeholders in relation to their performance and potential.

They will be encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning and development, this they will do through being set projects, work-based activities as well as working on real-life scenarios in the workshops.
