Mastering Leadership for Middle & Senior Leaders

Overview This programme is designed to deliver knowledge, understanding and skills required in senior leadership roles in ambitious organisations and is recognised by ILM as a Leadership Development Award. The content will broaden and build upon the self-awareness of leaders to create a strong understanding of the connection between participant’s thinking and behaviours, and the performance they inspire in others. We will look at all areas of self-concept, personality, and help participants to understand their own motivations, strengths and development needs and those of their entire team. We explores how to set meaningful and personally relevant performance objectives, and to flex their own style of leadership according to the needs of each situation and individual. These elements come together through group learning and executive coaching to enable participants to become influential and highly-effective, modern leaders. It is stressed that while this outline is based on interventions prepared and delivered for other clients it is readily amended to meet the precise needs of your organisation.

ILM Recognition To add additional credibility, the programme is recognised and approved by the ILM. In addition to ILM certificates at the end of the programme, attendees have the added value of 12 months study membership with the ILM. This will enable them to broaden and build on their learning experience during the programme and give them ample opportunity to maintain the learning momentum by studying further around the key subject areas, digging deeper into subjects which may be of particular interest or relevance in their work. We will extol the virtues of a learning organisation such as the ILM, dedicated to developing people who develop organisations, and remind them to make the most of this value resource, quoting Eric Hoffer, "In times of change learners inherit the earth; while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists."

Righttrack Style The Righttrack style is to engage, energise and enthuse. Sure, there’s formal input from the programme leader, but we aim to build knowledge and skills through maximum interaction and minimum lecture. We know from experience that that’s the only way to leave people feeling inspired, and to make a real difference to your organisation. Most importantly, every programme has a strong focus on making sure each participant can translate the learning to their leadership role.
