Good to Great

Good to great

Adapted from Jim Collins’ seminal business book, this challenging day will guide participants through a systematic process showing how they can apply the Good to Great principles to their work. The programme introduces participants to the three key modules of disciplined people, disciplined thought and disciplined action. It provides a guide to organisational transformation through Level 5 leadership, getting the right people on the bus, confronting the brutal facts, clarifying your ‘hedgehog concept’, creating a culture of discipline, and developing innovation accelerators.

Who is the programme for?

This challenging day is for CEOs, senior managers, heads of departments and team managers keen to transform performance across the organisation or within a team they lead.

“Good structure, varied concepts and useful tools. The programme’s strong leadership focus was incredibly useful. I’d definitely recommend this course.”

Nick Greenwood, Head of Human Resources, IIED
