Senior Leaders Programme, November 2018 - July 2019
What will you gain and how does it work?
What will you gain?
- Supportive networks for long term challenge and support
- Insights into other organisations’ leadership challenges
- Practical tools to enhance your leadership style
- The latest leadership theories and insights into the wider changes impacting society and the economy
How it works?
Successful applicants are divided into facilitated learning sets of six to eight delegates. You will meet four times formally to:
- reflect on common performance, leadership and personal challenges
- learn from the different perspectives and organisational cultures
- have an opportunity to meet fellow delegate’s senior colleagues, to discuss the organisation’s vision and challenges.
You will also combine with the other learning sets for three additional modules, to learn about current issues in strategic leadership.
You can also participate in your pick of WIG events:
- Workshops and masterclasses on topics such as behavioural change, ‘LEAN’, corporate governance, risk and reputation.
- High-level senior networking events – including the WIG Annual Reception, briefings from Permanent Secretaries and senior Private Sector speakers.
Once you have completed the programme you will become a part of WIG’s Alumni network of over 1,200 people who have been on our cross-sector leadership programmes. The network will help to maintain alumni relationships, build new contacts and continue your development as a leader by offering a range of activities and ways of keeping in touch.
Who is this programme for?
This programme takes a collaborative approach and the success relies as much on the attitude, engagement and commitment of participants as on the input or expertise of speakers and facilitators.
