Is this programme for you?
Are you looking towards your first director-level role in the Public Sector?
Are you thinking about the learning journey you will need to experience to enable you to be ‘job-ready’?
Are you up for developing your own powerful learning agenda, whilst working with peers to create a Community of Practice and enabling them to achieve theirs?
If the answers to the above are yes then this programme is for you so read on.
The landscape is changing and leaders in director-level roles in the future will need to hold the skills, knowledge and mind-set for leading complex systems. They will need to have a strong sense of self, of place, and of how they maximise their impact to deliver great outcomes for citizens.
Participants should be senior leaders working in and with public services in the North West and reporting to a Director/board level line manager or similar.
You must have real aspirations to progress to a Director/board level role – aspiration and ambition, rather than specific job title, are what will be key to gaining maximum benefit from this programme.
What can you expect?
The Aspiring Directors’ Programme provides an offering to support the talent pipeline for director-level roles, which acknowledges the changing landscape of the public sector, the complex systems, organisations and political challenges of working in and leading in uncertain and ambiguous environments.
To develop the leader is to develop the person. This programme is a leadership development journey that will change participants’ perceptions of who they are and how they impact on the world around them – the behaviours they model and the light they shine (or the shadow they cast….) as leaders across the system.
It will help them to explore the leader they are, the leader they need to be, to discover strengths and to identify areas to work on by completing a 360 degree feedback process.
Our 360 comprises of 10 elements that we feel are essential in supporting people and organisations moving forward.
Participants are asked to complete a self-assessment questionnaire and invite their manager, peers and colleagues to give them feedback on their leadership style and behaviours.
