What you will learn

This four-week virtual programme features 90-minute live faculty lectures with a Q&A at the end of each session. The sessions include engaging “try-it” and crowdsourcing features that help create an interactive, personalised and supportive learning experience.

Digital transformation is happening whether we like it or not. How does it affect you as a leader? What tools and approaches can make you more effective as a leader in a digital enterprise?

This session will feature an industry expert who will share their experience and showcase how you can implement your learnings in your organisation.

Learn to adopt a coaching mindset so you can expand from being a manager who organises to a leader who inspires.

We will discuss the What and How roadmap, explore learning models, learning cycle, situational leadership as well as the importance of psychological contracting.

To be an Authentic Leader you have to know who you are at your core. You also have to manage potential pressure points between your own values and those expected of you by your organisation.

In what sort of leadership situations are you really at your best? In this session, we will discuss what makes you distinctive and unique as a leader and challenge you to explore the implications of your leadership purpose for your leadership practice and career goals.

Managing your manager means building a relationship with your boss where he/she thinks highly of you, advocates for you and are active participants in advancing your career.

Some conversations are important yet have the potential to result in conflict and negative emotions. At the same time, not all potentially conflictual conversations need to be had. How do you decide which difficult conversations you need to have and how can you best approach these conversations?

In this session, we will talk about the diversity challenge facing managers in modern organisations. But while effectively managing diversity is challenging, it also creates important opportunities for building highly effective teams and cognitively diverse teams.

Leaders in organisations are more successful when followers and peers know and understand what they stand for and what their core capabilities and goals are. Understanding and managing your personal brand is therefore an important leadership capability and has an important impact on leadership success.

Emotional Quotient (EQ) is a powerful tool for leadership development. In this session, we will discuss EQ and explore how you can use this tool to enhance your leadership.

Cath will share her experience of being in and leading high performance teams to showcase how you can implement these learnings in an organisation.

Note: Each session commences at 9:00 AM BST.




Upon completion of the programme, participants will be awarded a verified Digital Certificate by Imperial College Business School Executive Education.
