Developing Leaders Programme

Developing Leaders

This programme assists those progressing towards more senior leadership positions to develop their strategic thinking.

This programme is suitable for participants who aim to continue their leadership journey to the most senior strategic positions, and have been identified as having the potential to do so.

Held three times a year, the programme comprises of two parts.

Debate, discuss and reflect

  • the difference between strategic and operational leadership  
  • how to cope with divided loyalties to both the organisation, and to your people
  • the impact of one’s decisions and preparing for even tougher decisions
  • issues that you may not agree with but are responsible for making happen
  • the importance of developing, and looking after those at levels below strategic and operational leadership
  • facilitating and implementing change without knowing all the information
  • the challenge of balancing the delivery of results and high performance with support for individual staff and their issues
  • the ambition to take on greater responsibility and a new senior role in the future against delivering high quality results in the present.

Rich cross-sectoral environment


Returning to the rich cross-sectoral environment of Windsor really helped in honing and clarifying the language and messaging I was using, as well as the way I framed my interactions at work.
