At Roffey Park we believe that good leadership is fundamentally ‘an inside job’; it rests on self-awareness and self-management, identifying clear goals, engaging others, being a role model, initiating change and demonstrating resilience in an increasingly turbulent organisational world.

This programme provides personal development through action. It includes a series of inputs from Roffey Park’s experts that lead to a range of experiential activities building leadership competence. Participants explore the difference between supervision, management and leadership. We use specific psychometrics to help facilitate development. All these activities allow participants to experience, review and identify effective approaches to leadership. Ultimately, each participant is encouraged to find their own preferred effective leadership style. We then help participants create plans to implement that in the workplace, reviewing their progress on the programme follow-on day.

This programme is for those who would be traditionally seen as middle managers and are now moving into a more senior position and taking on more leadership responsibility. This role may be more complex than previously and may have more resources to manage. It now requires leaders to develop a sense of vision for their department or business unit and to operate more strategically.

Why should you attend this programme?

  • Understand how to articulate and demonstrate what is fundamentally important to be an effective leader
  • Develop the confidence, knowledge and skill to be an effective leader
  • Discover a range of leadership techniques and methods and how to apply them in practice
