Outward-Looking Leadership Programme

Objectives

Can be adapted to meet an organisation’s unique needs. For example:

Option 1: 2-Day intensive for a leadership team, with a subsequent 1-2 days for one-on-one coaching and debrief (depending on the size of the leadership/executive team).

Option 2: A dinner and 2-hour introductory workshop on Day One (E.g. Monday). Participants have 3 days to complete their online programme (Tues-Thurs) with an evening debrief on Thurs. One-to-one coaching and refinement of individual strategies are provided on Day Five.

Objectives

The Outward Looking Leadership Programme is a powerful and innovative programme designed to empower leaders and organisations to grow their leadership capacity so they can respond to tomorrow’s opportunities.

Key objectives:

• INTENTIONAL ASSESSMENT: Help leaders discern a clear development path for their leadership journey by discovering connections and patterns that emerge as they participate in the programme.
• INTENTIONAL ALIGNMENT: Help leaders align their personal leadership vision, values, motivation, goals, and priorities by developing personal strategies to resolve conflicts that often arise when organisational, professional, and personal goals conflict.
• INTENTIONAL APPLICATION: Help leaders identify and leverage key learnings from their total leadership experience that are highly relevant to their current situation and future success as a leader.
• INTENTIONAL COHESIVENESS: Help leaders embrace a holistic and balanced approach that considers the many paradoxes that exist in their leadership DNA—cognitive and behavioural, practice and philosophy, competency and character, self-leadership and leading others
• INTENTIONAL REFLECTION: Provide leaders with an opportunity to hit the ‘pause’ button in the context of a busy and demanding world to reflect on what they need to lead effectively.

Who Should Attend
