Our residential retreat is the perfect next step for alumni who have completed the Executive Leadership in Action programme or for any senior professional who wants to take their self-development and ‘best self’ as a leader to the next level.
Held in the tranquil setting of Roffey Park, a renowned Leadership Institute in the beautiful English countryside near the South Coast, this programme will take you completely out of your demanding and stressful environment, creating a space where you can truly pause, take stock and challenge yourself to think differently.
THIS ISN’T A REGULAR TRAINING COURSE
Leadership is about who you are as much as what you do. It’s a journey intrinsically linked to your development as a person. Whether you’re mid-career or facing retirement in the near future, goals shift throughout a career, and all leaders reach a point when they ask: “Where next?”
THIS RETREAT IS ABOUT HELPING YOU TO FIND THE ANSWER SO YOU CAN STEP BOLDLY INTO THE FUTURE
It focuses on leadership concepts that will result in improvements in personal and organisational performance and the enhanced delivery of policies and public services at the highest levels.
It addresses those essential qualities that make you unique and the blocks and challenges that can often get in the way of realising your purpose and life goals.
Although you will hear from a range of inspiring individuals including an expert in political economy, a psychologist and a high-flying business entrepreneur, the emphasis will be on personalised coaching style sessions that explore your strengths, challenges and aspirations as an individual.
• You will be asked to complete psychometric questionnaires before commencing the retreat and an individualised learning plan will be prepared for you
• One-to-one coaching sessions are integral to the programme. You will explore your personal challenges and work through to a solution and action plan

– What authentic and resilient leadership really means
