Description

This Oxford training programme will equip you – whether you are a senior manager, leader or executive – with the very latest insights, models, tools and skills to boost your effectiveness, stand out from your colleagues and so transform your performance and reputation and those of your department and organisation.

This will be achieved by making explicit both the differences and the complementarities of both managing and leading. The expansive and, sadly, poorly defined art and science of management is one of the least understood and inadequately implemented organisational functions essential to all operations. This Oxford training programme has therefore been designed to help you cover the full range of management functions using a dynamic, powerful and highly practical new model of management practice – the Q-OPD Full-Range Management Model© .

Similarly, the critical role of leadership will be covered by looking at the five leadership approaches that are required of you in today’s organisations using the comprehensive Q-OPD Full-Range Leadership Model©. Special emphasis will be placed upon ‘transformational leadership’ as it is increasingly the style that is expected by followers – especially those belonging to demographic generations Y and Z in the workplace. This leadership style is designed to not only transform the performance of your staff but also their aspirations, skills and engagement.

You will enjoy the highly dynamic and interactive nature of the programme as it uses contemporary approaches to learning, including experiential group activities, individual exercises, mini-case studies, role plays and syndicate discussions to enable you to fully master and apply the material to your own situation.

Not only will this Oxford training programme make the key functions and requisite skills for outstanding management and leadership very clear, it will also provide you with the tools and techniques required to achieve world-class competence and confidence in carrying them out in any situation in the workplace.

This Oxford training course will highlight for you:

  • The critical differences between management and leadership and, paradoxically, how they complement each other
  • The five pairs of management functions that are required in today’s organisations
  • The ‘meta’ core skills that need to be mastered by both managers and leaders
  • The psychology of management
  • Disruptive new management practices and principles
  • The five leadership approaches that are required in today’s organisations
  • The psychology of influence, good communication and motivation
  • The essence of effective strategic thinking, planning, implementation and monitoring
  • The principles of disruptive change compared with competitive positioning
  • How to manage the first impressions you make, choose your subsequent behaviours and curate your reputation to clearly signal your leadership legitimacy

The training seminar is split into two modules:

  • MODULE I - The Boston Advanced Management Programme
  • MODULE II - The Boston Advanced Leadership Programme

Each module is structured and can be taken as a stand-alone training course; however, delegates will maximise their benefits by taking Module 1 and 2 back-to-back as a two-weeks training course.

Training Methodology

This Oxford training course will use a range of approaches to learning, including experiential group activities, individual exercises, mini-case studies, role plays and syndicate discussions. Graphical materials and stimulating explanations will be used to introduce underlying models. A key part of the learning process is sharing the different experiences and insights you and the other participants bring, as well as experimenting with novel – and sometimes challenging – techniques.
