Experienced Leaders Programme

Experienced Leaders

This programme enables you, as a senior executive, to become more effective by exploring, with others at a similar level, your responsibilities and challenges of strategic leadership.

Held twice a year, each programme is a two day residential course, followed by a two day Part Two.

Debate, discuss and reflect

  • difficult leadership challenges that come with ultimate responsibility, and the emotional trauma of difficult decision-making
  • the importance of looking after yourself – the personal aspects of developing support as you achieve greater levels of responsibility
  • the importance of developing and looking after your people
  • the role of ethics in leading large organisations
  • ways to cope with the increasing loneliness and isolation of strategic leadership
  • the nature of complex relationships, such as the wider Executive and Non-Executive teams or the chair and the board
  • the pressures of leading in the media spotlight and the implications for both internal and external communications.

Meet leaders from all walks of life

You'll develop your leadership alongside other senior leaders, from diverse backgrounds. We are meticulous in our selection process to guarantee full cross-sector diversity and ensure your peers are at the same point in their leadership development.
