The benefits

At the end of the Leading Growth programme you will be able to confidently say:

  • I lead myself: being a great leader starts with leading self and articulating a succinct answer to questions like; why anyone should be led by you?
  • I lead the business: understanding how, as a commercially savvy leader, you set the strategic business plan, understand the growth levers and all the moving parts which go into a rounded business growth strategy and how you shape a high performance culture in order to turn your vision into reality.
  • I lead others: unlocking people potential by identifying what makes individuals tick and how to develop great performance in others.
