Course overview

Being an influential leader demands skills far beyond technical expertise. It requires physical and vocal presence, outstanding communication skills and the ability to flex leadership styles to meet varied challenges as they arise.

The Leading Role is an intensive three-day course designed for those with at least 10 years’ leadership experience.

It goes beyond the pages of leadership theory and allows you to test, practise and build communication skills across the full spectrum of leadership characteristics. It’s intensive and highly practical with role-play scenarios and simulated conversations. We'll encourage you to find a leadership style that feels both authentic and credible, guided by world leading performance coaches.

The Leading Role promises to take you out of your comfort zone, bringing a creative and rigorous approach to bridging the gap between the leader you are and the leader you want to be.

A maximum participant/tutor ratio of ten to two provides a high level of individual attention, coaching and feedback.

I had two tutors throughout my three-day course who were both superb and made it a unique experience...It’s a fresh and innovative approach to delegate training.
