Leading Teams for Emerging Leaders empowers you to achieve one of the most critical leadership transitions in your career – delivering results through teams. Fast-track your career development and transform from individual contributor to a high-performing leader.
Transitioning to a role where you’re responsible for teams requires a considerable change in focus. Grounded in academic research, science and evidence, this programme broadens your business skills and behaviours to effectively manage and motivate your team, developing your self-awareness and your impact on others.
Enter a learning laboratory where group work, rich class discussions, coaching, simulations, as well as a guest speaker form a highly interactive and experiential learning environment. We draw on our iconic London location and take you outside the classroom to Silverstone, the home of British Motor Racing (see programme spotlight).
