About the Leadership in Management programme  

Aimed at mid-level and senior managers, Leadership in Management runs over a 12-month period with predetermined dates throughout the year. This time frame includes a 5.5-day, high-impact residential session with up to 21 other participants, plus a follow-up online workshop and full learning support.

A life-changing experience

Be prepared to undergo an emotional journey and begin to uncover more of yourself through a range of different mediums designed to support self-awareness and discovery. Receiving direct and honest feedback from peers throughout, this personal, transformative learning experience creates a continuous cycle of growth and that can be applied to both your personal and professional life.

It’s hard to articulate the impact this residential course has on your personal growth and leadership development. The residential was challenging, and – without a doubt – an experience I’ll never forget.

Learning Support

While the core component remains the 5.5-day residential element, the Leadership in Management programme runs over 12 months to support delegates embed their learning into their daily lives. Through this time, our dedicated Learning Success team provides a number of supplementary learning touch points, before and after the residential, to ensure delegates get the most from their experience.

More about us.

Our Methodology

We do not teach; we engineer experiences that reflect key challenges leaders will face in the workplace and enable learning by experience. Under pressure, default behaviours occur. Our approach to leadership is experiential learning, combining intellectual understanding with emotional appreciation. We believe this approach allows for the maximum learning output.

To quote John Dewey, “We do not learn from experience, we learn from reflecting on experience”.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is leadership development?

    Leadership development is a deliberate and systematic process aimed at enhancing the abilities, skills, and qualities of individuals to effectively lead others and achieve organisational goals. It can involve a combination of training, education, mentorship, and experiential learning designed to cultivate key leadership competencies such as communication, decision-making, strategic thinking, emotional intelligence, and conflict resolution.

    The ultimate goal of leadership development is to empower individuals to inspire, motivate, and guide others towards shared objectives while fostering a culture of collaboration, innovation, and continuous improvement within the organisation. Effective leadership development not only benefits the individual leaders but also contributes to the overall success and sustainability of the organisation in today’s dynamic and competitive business environment.

  • What is experiential learning?

    Experiential learning is an educational approach that emphasises hands-on, active engagement with learning materials and concepts. Instead of traditional methods like lectures or textbooks, experiential learning encourages delegates to directly engage with real-world experiences, problems, and challenges to deepen their understanding and develop practical skills.

    In experiential learning, learners actively participate in activities where they can directly apply what they’ve learned in a tangible context. This approach encourages reflection on experiences, allowing learners to draw connections between theory and practice, identify patterns, and derive meaningful insights.

    Overall, experiential learning fosters a more interactive, dynamic and engaging educational experience, enabling learners to develop both practical skills and a deeper understanding of the subject matter.

  • Why is professional development important for leaders?

    Professional development is crucial for leaders because it allows them to continually enhance their skills, knowledge, and abilities in order to adapt to changing circumstances, drive organisational success, and effectively lead their teams. Some of the benefits of leadership development include:

    • Continuous improvement
    • Enhanced leadership skills
    • Adaptability and resilience
    • Employee engagement and retention
    • Innovation and creativity
    • Succession planning

    Overall, professional development is essential for leaders to stay relevant, adaptable, and effective in their roles. By investing in their own growth and development, leaders can drive organisational success, inspire their teams, and create a culture of continuous learning and improvement.

  • What leadership skills will managers learn in the programme?

    Our programme is designed to empower managers by fostering self-awareness and emotional intelligence, which are essential qualities for building resilience and confidence. Participants will gain insights into their personal power and learn how to leverage it effectively in leadership roles. By developing these skills, managers can create stronger, more agile teams capable of adapting to challenges and seizing opportunities.

    Additionally, the program emphasises the importance of collaboration, enabling participants to assemble teams with a shared purpose and vision. Furthermore, it encourages ambition, inspiring leaders to innovate, think expansively, and transcend personal limitations. Through learning about team dynamics and effective communication strategies tailored to different personality types, managers will be equipped to foster cohesive and productive team environments.

  • What type of leaders would benefit from a leadership development programme?

    While there is no definite answer to this, we recommend that you have a few years of management experience to really benefit from the course. Those moving into more senior leadership roles, in particular positions where you will be leading other leaders, will find the programme particularly impactful.
