Discover Your Future

The Leadership Academy offers managers the opportunity to embark on a ‘Journey of Discovery’ to become the best leader they can possibly be.

Whether you’re starting at the beginning and moving through all our levels or you join us at a point that feels right for you, our leadership journeys are tailored so that individuals get the most out of the experience.

Designed around three key principles, DISCOVER. LEARN. CHALLENGE, learners emerge with a greater insight into themselves and those around them, whilst also picking up new skills and knowledge along the way.

Are you ready to DISCOVER yourself?

The first stage of our leadership journey starts in the Discover stage. What is it that makes you tick? What are your natural behaviour traits?

The best personal and professional development starts with the individual. Our programmes in this stage allows learners to recognise barriers and discover how to stretch to become the best colleague you can be.

Leadership Development Programme

Designed to expand leadership skills, our Leadership Development Programme (LDP) welcomes cohorts of likeminded individuals across a thirteen-month programme.

With only six days required out of the office, leaders will develop their skills, mindset and network over the duration of the course, whilst also gaining the opportunity to build close relationships with executives.

Course delegates also benefit from one-on-one coaching and tailored assessments to suit organisational needs.
