The Ashridge Leadership and Management Program will increase your ability to lead with greater confidence and with a broader range of capabilities.
This five-day leadership program, tailored to the Middle East context, gives you a richer understanding of yourself and your impact on others. It will challenge you to review and set new personal and professional goals.
As part of the program you are assigned a personal, executive coach who will help and support you to achieve your goals. The program will also improve your ability to achieve results through other people by giving you the tools to manage their performance more effectively.
You will have three one-to-one coaching sessions altogether. The first one takes place during the five-day residential phase. Two further sessions happen at three month intervals following the residential phase.
Content and Structure
Before the program, you complete a Strengths Deployment Inventory (SDI) to assess your personality type and individual needs. You also create a Leadership CV to review the factors that build your leadership style.
During the program, you will gain insight into your leadership style, motivations and values. The learning experience combines support and challenge groups, small-group activities and exercises, and a one-to-one session with your personal leadership coach.
Your coach is an experienced, solution-focused ally who will help you identify goals for your development, notice shifts of perspective and create a leadership development plan for continued growth back at work.
You will learn about:
Leadership styles in the context of your organization
Change leadership and how to manage ambiguity
How leaders think, learn and develop
Giving and receiving feedback
Creating value and improving performance
How to build and implement a personal and organizational vision
There are two further coaching sessions, usually at three month intervals following the residential phase, to help you build on your learning and apply your action plan
