Action Learning

Learning is best done through its direct application. This programme is an active investigation into your own business that produces concrete results; you don’t just describe the action, you take it.

Personal Tutor

An expert tutor will act as your personal guide throughout the programme. They will give you guidance on your change project and your own personal development, providing feedback at every stage.

Peer and Expert Strategic Review

There are several evaluation points within the programme journey that will allow you to make adjustments as required, either in your personal leadership development or your change project.

Secure Conversations

By virtue of the seniority in the room, significant conversations can be had with your peers that are conducted in total privacy, allowing you to formulate, adapt and change your thinking based on the concrete experiences of other senior leaders.

Strategic Space

You will be given the time and space to create organisation defining strategies. You will be out of the office on one Thursday or Friday of each month. This investment of your time is treated as such – an investment – and each moment is geared towards delivering a return on it.

Forging a Fresh Perspective

This programme gives you the space and the tools to look at your organisation from a bird’s-eye view and see it anew, ensuring you avoid the common trap of 'this is how we've always done it'.
