About the course
Shift your focus from day-to-day tasks to thinking more strategically while simultaneously becoming a more effective, resilient and dynamic leader
The Strategic Leadership Development Program has been thoughtfully designed to provide an integrated and elevated learning experience. Throughout this program new skills, knowledge and behaviours are learned and applied through immediate integration in the workplace.
This program blends self-directed online modules with live, interactive online workshops. Sessions are deliberately spaced to allow sufficient time to digest materials, to practice concepts and tools, and to discuss ideas with colleagues. The module themes alternate between strategic and leadership topics. Between live sessions, learning engagement activities provide continuity and connectivity. The interwoven topics and activities are built into a flexible frame, with a mentored Action Learning Project and Personal Leadership Development Plan providing structure around the program’s themes.
The learning journey
Throughout the Strategic Leadership Development Program strategy and leadership topics are intentionally intertwined, with each week’s theme building off of what has come before. The Action Learning Project and Personal Leadership Development components provide structure and cohesion to the program, resulting in an integrated and elevated learning experience.
