Weekly Learning Journey
Each week of content follows a very clear path to facilitate learning for busy executives. The platform allows participants to learn at their own pace during each week, by viewing the content, completing assignments and engaging in discussions, taking on average 4-6 hours per week to complete.
Action Learning Project
Developing your leadership skills is critical to driving business success for your organisation in these turbulent times. Skilfully applying these skills to your own role in leading yourself and high-performing teams is key to helping them realise their full potential and seize the opportunities the digital revolution presents.
With this in mind, the Action Learning Project (ALP) will be focusing on building your Leadership Action Plan, and will give you the opportunity to practise applying your learning to your own leadership role. The ALP will take you on a step-by-step journey to develop a leadership practice that you can hone while managing yourself and team in the digital era. You will begin with a reflection on how to lead yourself in the situations you are currently faced with. You will subsequently build on it by developing and practising skills and behaviours to manage others in your team while forming effective collaborations. You will also be challenged to reflect on the impact of digital on your current leadership practice. The ALP will culminate in you having developed a leadership practice that is most effective for your role in setting up your team for growth and success.
There are 3 phases to the ALP process: First, you will agree on the scope of your ALP with the learning coach, to make sure it aligns with the learning objectives of the programme and culminates in a concrete goal. Second, in each of the 5 content weeks, you will apply the concepts from that week to your ALP. Third, in Week 6, you will synthesise elements from your weekly submissions into a coherent leadership practice and submit it for peer review in Week 7, the final week of the programme. All participants will review 3 to 4 other submissions and provide peer feedback. The final ALP and peer review process normally takes between 10-12 days after the programme content finishes.
