Leader 2 Leader


Leader 2 Leader harnesses learning best practice to create a transformational leadership programme that maximises the benefits of social learning from a diverse group of peers. The bespoke learning elements reflect your own learning goals and challenges while maintaining a sharp focus on learning through action.   

The dynamic and responsive 8 month programme combines an initial 2 day residential to build a learning network, followed by bite size ‘leadership nuggets’ to inspire action, a shared consultancy challenge to embed some of the learning, 1:1 coaching to accelerate personal growth and a resource repository for deep-dives into areas of personal interest.

Leaders from a range of sectors form a diverse learning cohort to share experiences including time spent shadowing one another to learn more about other industries and gain an insight into other leadership styles and approaches.
