Who should attend

Participants new to managing a team after moving from a functional or expert role. Participants may also have some experience managing a team but are unsure how to further enhance the performance of their direct reports.

About the course

This program teaches new leaders how to harness their own strengths to bring out the best in each team member and as a result, boost performance as a whole.

Throughout the program, you will not only learn what they can do differently to lead with impact, but what unique skills or traits you can use to effectively guide a team or project to success. Through simulations with actors, case studies, and peer-feedback rounds, you will experience lessons in coaching others, cultivating a spirit of commitment and engagement, establishing effective communication and alignment practices, and understanding the impact of change. At the end of the program, you will work on an action plan that will help you to use what you have learned.

More about the program

The findings about leadership and team outcomes for the skippers and crew from the Clipper Race are closer to work than sport, as importantly, people are there for different reasons – for many it is not all about being first past the post! The story this scenario tells is about making the best of the team even when individuals are not personally selected and team members can often change. This exclusive research is combined with simulations conducted with trained actors to provide leaders with immersive, real-world experiences in overcoming leadership challenges.

What you will learn

  • Enhance their own performance and the performance of others
  • Build agile and high-performing teams, globally and locally
  • Foster the confidence and ability to coach others
  • Handle difficult conversations
  • Learn from their colleagues, and understand each other's differences and strengths
  • Identity how to engage and motivate their team to achieve long-term results

For participants with complex schedules and frequent commitments, the self-paced approach helps them navigate a full calendar and put the Open Program learnings first when it works best. This style helps participants avoid going through t he motions of the course and instead focus on learning when they have the capacity to do so.
