The programme is designed for managers, who want to boost their performance, increase awareness as a leader and help lead teams to greater results in more empowering ways. It has a strong base in contemporary leadership thinking combined with practical exploration of leadership issues, all set within a local authority context. Learning takes place through group activities, exploration of theory and reflection on participants’ own work situations. There are opportunities to lead or observe a team exercise. You will also receive feedback from other team members on their observed strengths and weaknesses. This is a core programme, which serves as a brilliant foundation to other programmes on offer by STC.
