Advanced Leadership

The goal of any leadership development programme is to change behavior. After a successful programme, participants should show up differently, saying and doing things in new ways that produce better results.

What makes leadership hard isn’t the theoretical, it’s the practical. It’s not about knowing what to say or do. It’s about whether you’re willing to experience the discomfort, risk, and uncertainty of saying or doing it. In other words, the critical challenge of leadership is, mostly, the challenge of emotional courage. We believe an advanced programme needs to be tailored to the culture, challenges and particularities of an organization.

Live Learning has designed and delivered advanced leadership development programmes that range from 3-day courses to multi-module 18 month transformational journeys for up to 500 executives. Our highly experienced team of consultants have worked on impactful programmes for global clients including Airbus, BMW, American Express and Adidas. Leadership is the art of inspiring others to dream more, become more, learn more and do more.

A tailored advance programme may typically include some of the following content.

  • Strengthen businnes skills and mindset
  • Provide a unique self-development journey by developing self-confidence, resilience and agility
  • Push boundaries, experiment and broaden perspectives
  • Enhance authentic leadership qualities, strengths and potential patters and traps
