Language of Instruction:

Senior managers in complex organisations operate in an environment that is time-sensitive and goal-orientated. Leaders today need to deliver in the Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, Ambiguity (VUCA) world whilst being acutely sensitive to their working environment. 

Your current way of working may tend to focus on the operational/technical tasks of your role rather than the wider strategic context. This programme will help you see the importance of bringing your teams with you and gaining others’ commitment.

A 'purposeful leader' needs to be able to work effectively to ensure deliberate outcomes for themselves, the team and the organisation. The purposeful leader makes informed decisions to produce consistently higher performance from their teams.

The programme is intensive and highly experiential. You will hear the theory then immediately have the opportunity to experience yourself in simulated professional situations and learn from your own (and others') actions and reactions. 

This will enable you to identify and understand the conscious and unconscious factors shaping your decisions, actions and habits. It will separate the demands of the role from personal preference and investigate modes of operation and examine fundamental choices about where and how time is spent. 

The barriers to reaching full effectiveness are often unconscious and the programme will provide individual personal development time along with time and space for reflection to discover genuine personal insight.
