Successful organisations need leaders with a clear sense of purpose, vision and direction who are able to inspire and engage their teams to follow them into the unknown. Leadership is tested every day in the balancing of implementing strategy and delivering operational goals. It is a place where you feel stretched by competing demands.  

Our unique leadership development programme is designed to support middle managers to overcome, thrive and flourish within their roles. This course balances personal support and challenge and feedback with the knowledge, skills and tools you need to work effectively at both strategic and operational levels. Focusing on your own development needs will allow you to develop the skill necessary to lead your team through change and transition. This course brings the expertise of 75 years of Roffey Park Institute experience to provide you with a leadership development programme that enables you to lead and thrive in ambiguity, complexity and uncertainty.

Who is this course for?

The Roffey Park Leadership Development Programme is aimed at mid-level managers within organisations. It is also useful for individuals working with multiple teams in a matrix or project environment. This course is the next step for those who have attended our Leadership or Management Essentials courses.

This is a comprehensive leadership development programme over a three-month period.

  • You will develop a comprehensive personal development plan to apply within your work context allowing you to think and act strategically
  • You will learn to assess and develop a high-performing team to support you in your work
  • You will be able to lead and support others through change and complexity
  • You will become an effective manager who works across boundaries and adapts to change developing resilience within your team

This course provides organisations with a deep and comprehensive leadership development programme for middle-level managers. The course is impact-focused and provides your managers with an insight into their strengths and weaknesses and the tools they need to lead effectively from the difficult space of mid-management

Throughout this course, your managers will return to the workplace re-energised and focused on making significant changes in their leadership to the benefit of the organisation. They will engage with real organisational challenges within their workplace and bring back practical actions to bring about change
