Comprehensive grounding in people management and leadership skills, tools and techniques
This is a sample learning overview that we can design and deliver specifically for your organisation.
We can design and deliver a blended leadership and management development programme. We believe experiential and action learning best enable participants to successfully transfer skills and knowledge back to the workplace. Our workshops often include role play facilitated by specialist actors, work-based assignments and one-to-one tutor feedback.
Participants on such a leadership and management development programme will:
A typical programme may include the following elements:
During these sessions you will examine various aspects of management and leadership including:
These provide a thorough grounding in people management and leadership skills together with a practical toolkit to support your role.
The modules take an active approach to learning in the classroom. We believe that in order for knowledge and skills to be successfully transferred back to the workplace it is vital that learning is dynamic and active.
For this reason the face-to-face modules are usually conducted through a lively mixture of group discussion, self-assessment, scenario analysis and live role-play with professional actors. This practical approach will allow you to return to the workplace with confidence in your ability to implement these techniques.
Following face-to-face modules, we ask participants to complete a work-based assignment. This helps them to track their personal development throughout the programme and evaluate skills reviewed in the classroom to determine how best to implement them back in the workplace. Successful completion of the assignment will enable participants to achieve the ILM 5 award in leadership and management skills.
Virtual classrooms allow participants to continue their development after the modules and prepare for their ongoing learning journey. They provide an opportunity to reconnect with the programme leader and fellow participants to raise questions regarding the assignment as well as share success stories and challenges relating to the previous module.
One-to-one support can be made available from the programme leader. Following each assignment participants will receive individual feedback through a phone consultation, providing an opportunity to discuss other parts of the programme and receive guidance on personal development.
