About the course
King’s College London is renowned for working closely with leading practitioners across a range of professions and is delighted to offer this short course in Leadership & People Management.
This intensive programme blends expert academic and practitioner input, including an in-depth experiential workshop directed by the Tavistock Institute, the country’s leading institution in developing and supporting organisational leadership in an applied and practical way. Course participants learn, apply, participate and reflect on the principles and lived experience of leadership, both in the sessions themselves and then through an individual work-related project, supported by a coach. A final autumn session combines a certificate ceremony with an opportunity to present, network and re-cap.
The programme is designed for mid-career professionals who are taking on new responsibilities or a larger workforce.
