Acquire a broader business perspective to deliver greater value.
As a functional or specialist manager transitioning from being an expert in their field into a wider general management role, this can not only be a big step, it can feel difficult, and can be risky, as well as being rewarding when done. This programme supports your transition from a specialist manager to a cross-functional leader providing you with the knowledge, skills and confidence to add value to the organisation.
What you will learn
You will leave the programme with:
- A greater ability to influence effectively across functions and at all levels.
- A clear understanding of the strategic issues facing your organisation’s key business functions and how to focus your activities to deliver value on these.
- The ability to work through others to really influence and action change.
- An integrated suite of leadership development tools and a 360 view so to identify and implement an effective plan to instil and lead behavioural and strategic change across the business.
To broaden your perspective on management and prepare you to step up into a wider role, the programme will focus on a range of organisational functions and the leadership skills they demand to deliver results.
In order to maximise your ability to influence without authority, this programme incorporates psychometric assessments to determine and maximise your cross functional leadership style.
You work to further enhance your range of organisational and interpersonal leadership skills and identify and execute a cross functional project that adds value across your organisation.
During the course of the programme, you will work with a group of fellow participants on a business simulation, assessing complex situations and making strategic decisions concerning a fictitious commercial business.
