To develop a new Leadership Behaviour Programme to help managers display the behaviours expected of them as future leaders in the business.
Following discussions with the Board, it was identified that the Programme should deliver a recognised qualification and it was agreed that the Programme would be accredited by the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) at Level 5.
Our approach was to develop a structured development programme, delivered to cohorts over a 12-month period. The programme consisted of 4 face-to-face interactive modules, focussing on ‘my role as a leader’, ‘leadership communications’, ‘leading teams’ and ‘career path planning’. The modules, and pre- and post-work that made up the programme were carefully designed to stretch and challenge the learners, and workplace Mentors were allocated to provide additional support.
