M1: Enhancing leadership skills through action learning sets: exploring different models, up close and at a distance

Participants will learn the theory behind Action Learning Sets (ALS) and be provided with the basic toolkit to establish a collaborative and supportive Learning Set in their own setting. ALS proactively develops a structure and skills for peer support to solve real-life management problems, and to facilitate reflection by leaders, established or emerging.

M5: Political astuteness: how to navigate the political landscape of organisations as leaders

All leaders have to deal with politics in their organisation at various stages in their career. Complex organisations have a large range of values & beliefs, goals, challenges, and interests to contend with.

We will use a range of learning approaches using a 4-stage model to explore areas of power/interest, stakeholder mapping, influencing without authority and personal and interpersonal skills.
