In challenging times exceptional leaders need to demonstrate courage and resilience. This programme supports senior leaders as they navigate this ever-changing landscape.
‘Live-Online Developing Strategic Leaders’ takes inspiration from our residential Developing Leaders Programme. It offers a unique online experience which prepares you to deal with the uncertainty, fear and isolation that accompanies complex challenges.
Held over three days, with a part two four or five months later, the programme offers a safe space in which individuals, tasked with shaping the future of their organisation, can unpack who they are as a leader.
Participants create the agenda by discussing and exploring their current leadership challenges, in confidence, with fellow attendees. Themes discussed might include:
- leading remotely
- facilitating and implementing change
- facing the new normal
- strategic vs operational leadership
- preparing for your next senior role
- tackling imposter syndrome
- resilience and wellbeing
The programme is chaired by a senior leader who will lead the group through plenary discussions and host guest speaker sessions, which include very honest reflections and insights from senior leaders, in a range of diverse sectors. Our experienced facilitators lead smaller breakout ‘syndicate’ groups to allow participants to discuss individual leadership challenges at a personal level, as well as review topics and themes in the safety of their syndicates.
The programme is delivered ‘live’ via Zoom so participants can interact with each other, the Chair, facilitators and speakers as they would in-person. More details about what you can expect from our Live-Online Programmes can be found here.

This programme is ideal for established senior leaders looking to develop their strategic capability. With a focus on facilitated learning in a peer-to-peer environment, we welcome participants from across all the sectors, including public, corporate, education, faith, military and not-for-profit.
