Strategic Leadership Skills


have two voluntary sector clients who are senoir managers of the organisation in question. they have undetaken accredited senoir managment training but have asked me to source accredited Managment training from a strategic leadership perspective rather than the perspective of individual Senior Managers. They work as a team and are essentially the Chief Officers of the company.

Ideally the options need to be local as it is very difficult for Voluntary Sector leaders to undertake extensive training away from their locale.
Any advice/suggestions appreciated.

    With what type of organisations?

    Cranfield, Ashridge, Roffyee park, IOD all provide leadership programmes recognised by the public sector – but are you looking for a badge or capability – the two are not necessarily the same thing.

    This type of programme is rarely availably locally.

    These programmes are also expensive.

    Have you considered peer learning or tyhe use of action learning sets with like minded organisations?

  3. L5 Vocational management
    Senior management have always responded positively in my experience to bespoke leadership programmes which are underpinned by accreditation.

    I have run these programmes in the past both through ILM as one of the other posts suggests as well as through awards UK/edexcel/SQA.

    With experience of public sector at a senior level it has always seemed appropriate to design programmes which can blend on going leadership development with real live experience (action centred learning) and within a framework which provides not only accreditation but ongoing support to the individuals impact on their roles.

    Feel free to contact me to discuss further and I am can discuss experiences or delivery options should you be interested,
