Advanced Leadership Programme

The Advanced Leadership Programme is designed for senior functional experts who have been identified as having the potential for future leadership roles within their organisations. It serves as an initial template, but every organisation is different and through our discussions we will design a programme that is tailored to the needs of your organisation and your future needs.

The aim of this programme is to hone business skills and shift mind-sets from focus on personal productivity and functional management to a focus on team productivity and strategic management. Participants are encouraged to view themselves as “strategy co-owners” having the responsibility to drive organisational vision and strategy within their teams.

The Advanced Leadership Programme is the outcome of our work with many organisations across the globe.
