The Director Programme

                         For executive directors

Developed and updated from the previous Top Leader programme, the Director Programme is for all senior executive leaders who are seeking further role development and support.

The Director programme is primarily designed for people who need to be stretched, challenged and are open to thinking very differently about their leadership role. This a year-long programme includes a seven-day residential programme delivered in two parts over the course of three to four months.  It is focused on developing the capacity of participants to adapt, enhance and broaden their own leadership styles and behaviours.  Participants are provided with expert input and thought-provoking and stimulating experiences in both large and small groups.  The programme will continually focus on the changes people are leading in their workplace, their own responsibilities and influencing capacity around that change.
