Who should attend

The Advanced Management Programme is designed for senior executives, including CEOs, COOs, CFOs and heads of product divisions, geographical regions or other major business units within the private or public sectors.

Senior executives without current managerial responsibilities and business consultants with senior-level client experience are invited to discuss their candidacy with the programme advisor.

About the course

Trends, change, strategy, bottom line – these are just some of the factors that govern and have the power to make or break today’s businesses. With an organisation counting on the decisions that you make, what you need is judgement that is calculated, intelligent and relevant.

Our Advanced Management Programme gives you opportunities to lock into the key processes that define your judgement as a leader. Our innovative methods and use of proprietary frameworks help you to address all aspects of business leadership and implement an agenda to enhance both your own and your organisation’s performance.

How you Benefit

  • Gain more insights. Through real case studies and explorations, your assumptions are challenged and you gain new perspectives.
  • Sustain actionable knowledge. Harness information you already have into workable action plans.
  • Achieve greater confidence. Develop confidence in your knowledge by testing your assumptions and making them more robust.

Content Overview

Senior executives and C-Suite leaders rarely face issues that come with a specific title such as “marketing”, “finance” or “HR”. Rather, they deal with complex issues that cut across such functional categories.

The content and curriculum of the Advanced Management Programme are organised as an integrated learning process that enables you – a senior organisational executive leader – to engage systematically with complex strategic issues.

The learning process is designed to support three interlinking leadership themes: the Strategic Leader, the High-Performance Leader and the Self-Aware Leader. Together, these support an aspiration to be “insightfully aware” in every area of your leadership. As part of understanding your authenticity as a leader, we aim to take you on a personal journey to develop "Insightful Awareness" of your strengths, weaknesses, hidden drivers and blockers of the changes you want to make.

Our objective is to develop the most effective C-Suite leaders possible and open your mind to new ways of thinking, acting and leading.

Strategic leadership and Mega trends

Most strategic decisions ought to be contingent on sweeping, long-term changes in politics, economics, technology, globalisation, social attributes and talent management. Remarkably, several of these trends seem to be fairly stable over the long-term, while displaying short-term perturbations. Topics include:

  • Macro economy and the geo-political context
  • Technology, disruption and innovation
  • Vision, strategy and business models
  • Engaging and leading change

High-performance leadership and Stakeholders

High-performance organisations and teams are characterised by goal clarity and commitment, role complementarity, effective communication and decision-making processes as well as professional and constructive interpersonal relationships. Successful organisational leadership also derives at least partly from being able to manage the expectations of diverse and often competing stakeholder groups. Topics include:

  • High-performance and leadership teams
  • High-performance organisational drivers and blockers
  • Societal, public and governmental stakeholders
  • Engaging talent and people

Self-aware leadership and people

The third theme focuses on the individual leader and their relationships with the people they seek to lead, influence and motivate. The Advanced Management Programme allows you the opportunity to both reflect upon, and develop, your leadership strengths – and confront the gaps that are holding you back from being the best leader you can be. Topics include:

  • Charting a leadership journey
  • Emotional intelligence
  • Authenticity, values and motivators
  • Effective leadership communication and leadership/executive presence

An approach tailored to senior leaders

The Advanced Management Programme seeks to cast a spotlight on the way senior leaders strategically and insightfully exercise their leadership, behaviours and judgement at every level. Three unique elements of the programme are designed to achieve this:

The "Strategic Encounter"

The "Strategic Encounter" enables strategic thinking, change, creativity, innovation, disruption, decision-making and communication to come into focus for you and your organisation. This will help you set and execute strategic priorities and initiatives.

The "Personal leadership agenda"

A deeply integrated process of individual leadership development and transformation that intertwines with workshops, coaching, feedback, reflection and proprietary diagnostics.

The core "Insightful awareness"

Where the learning and development activities, content, tools and process of the four weeks continuously intersect across strategic leadership, high-performance leadership and self-aware leadership – connecting self, team, and organisation.
