Leader programme

Leading recovery to regrowth

The leader programme is specifically designed to enable leaders to grow their business through the development of strong leadership competencies.  The programme offers the opportunity to assess your business’s performance, identify opportunities, overcome challenges and build capability. 

It will help you identify where you are as a leader, where you want to be and how to unleash the growth potential of your business and your people.

The programme is aimed at the overall leader of an SME, the managing director, CEO or owner-manager who can demonstrate: 

  • A clear strategic need and willingness to change 
  • Commitment and time available 
  • Turnover ideally greater than £1 million 
  • A history of profitable trading 
  • An existing robust business model
