Successful leaders know their strengths and weaknesses, accentuating the former and minimising the latter. Whether, as a senior leader, you are leading a large multinational organisation or creating a high performance team the Advanced Personal Leadership Programme will help enhance your leadership capability.

The Advanced Leadership Programme is a hands-on programme that is profoundly challenging. It takes you on a significant professional and personal journey that increases your understanding of what ‘leadership’ encompasses, developing your leadership skills and how to use these to inspire outstanding performance in a team or organisation. It also challenges you to think about how you see yourself as a leader.

The programme delivers a high impact experience for leader-managers that connects grounded, evidence-based practice with the use of Harvard organisation case studies employing our SCART methodology. Throughout the programme, you will be able to use the learned critical analysis and insight which can be applied through a 360° review of leadership through differing scenarios. Participants also receive a TI DISC personality profile that provides an accurate insight into their professional work style.
