Leadership Development Programme
A dedicated Leadership Development Programme runs throughout the two year Executive MBA, and provides opportunities for participants to enhance specific skills and their personal and professional leadership competencies. Knowledge of the core management frameworks and concepts is only one part of the leader’s toolkit. To be truly effective, leaders must also develop a range of leadership ‘skills’ and heightened levels of self-awareness, social and emotional intelligence.
Participants engage in:
Personality profiling – undertaking the NEO PI-R will help you to understand personality types, including your own. You will identify and improve your own communication style by focusing on your strengths. The NEO PI-R is internationally recognised as the ‘gold standard’ instrument with which to measure personality. Working with our in-house coach you will reflect on your NEO PI-R results in confidence and will engage in follow-up one-to-one coaching sessions to build on this knowledge and devise your own professional development strategy
Team building – understanding effective team dynamics is an essential skill for any manager. Commencing at orientation, MBA participants engage in an intensive set of team building activities. Continuing in this vein, students focus on working effectively in teams for the duration of the programme
Communication, presentation & negotiation skills – strong, persuasive communications skills are vital for any business person. In addition, to navigate challenging situations and avail of opportunity, leaders require the ability to negotiate. Through a number of sessions, MBA participants will hone their ability to listen, understand, empathise and persuade.
Analysis – through engagement with both case studies and actual company challenges participants are encouraged to develop their critical thinking, analytic skills and ability to impart constructive criticism.
Career development – our award-winning Career Development team will deliver group and one to one sessions to assist you in identifying and achieving your personal career goals.
