The programme’s four primary components ensure learning that sticks…

Everyone on the programme will undertake a Gallup StrengthsFinder online self-assessment (20 minutes). Designed to help you learn how to do more of what you naturally do best and help unlock your potential in every facet of life.

A peer debrief during the first module will provide a snapshot of the team’s collective strengths.

These will be a key source of learning during the programme, using a variety of methods including:
  • Tutor input
  • Video analysis
  • Case study review
  • Practical exercises and experiments
  • Structured debate
  • Group discussions
The style of these sessions will be energetic and interactive, building in frequent opportunities for personal reflection and for peer coaching.

After completing Modules 1, 3, and 5, delegates will engage in Action Learning Sets designed to synchronise thought and action. This transformative experience thrives on cultivating an open, inquisitive mindset—best achieved through active listening, thoughtful questioning, and the exploration of ideas. These sessions are an opportunity to harmonize thinking and action, fostering a dynamic blend that propels new leaders toward success.

Fostering Lasting Behavioural Change: The portal goes beyond traditional learning, championing the continuity of behavioural change. It serves as a dynamic hub for learners to share and delve into concentrated on-the-job experiences. Participants engage in a vibrant exchange of best practices, fostering reflection, collaboration, and networking, drawing inspiration from the impactful activities of their peers.

This on-the-job assisted learning ecosystem, seamlessly facilitated by the portal, redefines the educational landscape. By tapping into real-world experiences, it significantly diminishes the reliance on classroom time, offering a transformative approach that reduces the need for in-person sessions by up to 60%.

In embracing this innovative platform, not only do you enhance the value for money invested in learning but also cater to diverse learning styles. It’s a comprehensive solution that propels learners towards sustained growth while fostering a community where knowledge is not just acquired but actively shared and applied.
