Executive Challenge
Wed 6th December
University of York

Course Content
Participants will examine a case study in leadership prior to the event, and be asked to complete an optional 360 feedback exercise with their colleagues. The first session of the day will explore good practice and current theory relating to excellent, authentic leadership.

In small teams, our delegates will be asked to complete a series of challenges that will require them to apply strategic thinking, effective communication, and leadership skill. Participants will not need to be especially physically fit to complete the Challenge Day, but they will need to be determined, open minded, and comfortable to receive feedback on their leadership and team work performance. Our specialist instructors will facilitate feedback from the other participating delegates, and provide their own perspective as observers.

At the end of the day, all delegates will work through a structured reflective practice session, and consider honestly their strengths as leaders, and the areas they may need to develop in, on the basis of their performance on the day. All learning will be applied to the delegates’ real professional world, and practical action plans will be developed.
