Emerging leaders programme

We are passionate about nurturing the leaders of tomorrow and have put together a programme to help senior managers explore how you can be at your best in your current role and also to progress your career to become a chief executive.

Designed to balance your specific requirements in terms of knowledge and skills development, with the demands of a busy schedule, the programme blends a variety of approaches to suit all learning styles and preferences.

This series of workshops, online learning modules, coaching and support will expand your self-awareness and help you gain valuable insights into how other people think, feel and respond in the workplace. The Emerging Leaders programme will give you powerful practical skills and a sound base of leadership knowledge that will serve you well in current and future roles. 

The trainers are very knowledgeable on their subject matter and very approachable. Really well delivered training - hit the spot exactly! Louise Hayes, director of operations, One Trust.
