Background and Context
The programme is designed for senior managers and leaders. The design centres on conversation as the core approach developing high performance in the leader’s area of influence.
The conversations and dialogues required to build and maintain high performance are supported with a range of tools and mental maps which provide structure and discipline to the skills developed during the programme.
Participants work with real-life situations and issues from their work on the programme. The pre-work requires them to develop an action learning question (ALQ) and a Performance Conversation/Dilemma to discuss and work on within the programme.
The intention is to both challenge and support participants in developing their skills and to address some of the issues and mindsets that may be limiting their ability to deliver the performance they want.
The programme continues after the initial workshop with two action learning set meetings (which can be face-to-face or “virtual” depending on the geographical spread) where set members report on progress and developments and receive further challenging and support to further develop insight and help them take action.
