This program, tailored to the Middle East context, is for people who need to lead their organizations through change. It is for experienced, senior people who know that change presents a challenge and would like to know more about the science and art of leading a successful implementation.
You will explore your leadership style and how to lead people through change as well as examining potential routes to growth for organizations. Working in groups, you will tackle your own challenges and develop the confidence and judgement to make changes when you return to your organization.
Content and Structure
Before the residential phase of your program, you will complete a 360 questionnaire to support yout self awareness and receive preparation work designed specifically for you.

Lead change in a more organized, deliberate way
Improve your understanding of the types of change and different approaches that work in other organizations

Build a set of tools for leading change reliably and thoroughly
Use the right messages at the right time for the right people

A month after the residential phase, you will have a personal 'back to work' briefing with a tutor who will discuss how the new tools and plans are helping you succeed in the workplace.
You are also given continued access to your online program portal and Virtual Ashridge content for six months after your residential stay.
Leading Change and Growth is also run in the UK at Ashridge.
