Develop the essential qualities of a director through a series of masterclasses led by subject experts in order to enhance your leadership effectiveness and contribution at senior management level.
Senior management and company directors are exposed to a multitude of demands and challenges, including the realities of the current business climate, governance and risk management. Succession planning and developing the next generation of directors relies on the alignment of employee ambition, company resources, finances and time.
We've partnered with Bayes Business School (formerly Cass) to deliver a programme that will nurture high-potential individuals within organisations to successfully lead in senior management. Over the course of three and a half days, participants will develop the key attributes of a director through a series of masterclasses, taught by subject specialists, in order to increase their leadership effectiveness and their contribution at senior management level.
There will be an opportunity to meet inspirational leaders at the Institution who are advocates of professional development and have learned valuable lessons to share with those on a pathway to directorship.
As part of the programme, participants will also benefit from post-programme coaching sessions, a roundtable event with a guest speaker and networking opportunities.
Who should attend?
Designed for engineering managers, technical leads and senior engineers with a minimum of three years of experience in leadership. The programme will enable participants to respond effectively to challenging business environments and achieve tangible outcomes in your organisation, and also confidently progress to senior leadership.
