Strategic Leadership


Making strategic choices to take the organisation forward

This programme enables participants to identify different approaches to their strategic challenges and also to plan for long term results and impact. It focuses on three core impact areas – Values-Driven Leadership, Strategy and Change, and makes continual links between these three.

All our public training is scheduled when enough demand is there, so please register your interest here, and we'll let you know as soon as a new date is set.
Yes, and also face to face. It's equally suitable for both options. For more information on the differences between online and face to face training, visit our Learning and Development page.
If you have 6 or more people to train it's worth getting in touch to discuss in-house options.

These include:
  • your choice of structure – as well as choosing dates to suit you, you can also decide whether to have the content delivered in full days, half-day sessions or bitesize sessions over separate days.
  • tailoring options – if you're looking to focus on particular elements of the programme, we can look into this.
  • self-directed learning – this enables participants to set learning goals, acquire knowledge and skills, set their own actions and evaluate themselves using a customised web portal which we'll build for you.
In order to make sure your in-house training needs are met, the best way to start this process is with a conversation (for free of course). Contact us online or call 020 7978 1516 to speak to one of our experienced consultants.

The Values-Driven Leadership module helps participants to reflect on their personal approach to leadership. Through a 360° assessment using Kouzes and Posner’s Leadership Practices (LPI) model, participants will identify what their organisation needs from them now and in the future both individually and as a team of ethical leaders.

The Strategy module introduces key tools to enable participants to determine a clear strategic direction and answer key questions about what their organisations should be doing, and not doing.

The Change module empowers participants to plan, lead and communicate change effectively.

Who is the programme for?

This programme is designed for leaders who develop strategies and lead change programmes at an organisation or team level. For participants who are new to senior roles it will help them work at a strategic rather than operational level. For experienced senior staff it provides tools and approaches to reflect on their own practice and to develop their performance and impact.

For those interested in developing their individual leadership skills in more depth, see the Transformational Leadership programme.
