Oxford Strategic Leadership Programme

Who takes part?

As someone considering the Strategic Leadership Programme, you will:

  • be an experienced senior leader at the top of your career with a minimum of 5-10 years leadership experience, looking to focus, and expand, on personal learning and development.
  • bring significant experience and will be responsible for directly leading others and making important decisions, typically in a number of different roles and have already held senior leadership positions.
  • have highly individual personal leadership challenges you wish to share and address on the programme.
  • find yourself facing new leadership challenges or welcoming an opportunity to re-examine your leadership assumptions.

You should join this programme if you are looking for a unique experience with the opportunity to reflect, to connect with yourself, to be challenged and discomfited, to question and be questioned. 

On this programme you will be part of a group with a wide range of cultural and organisational backgrounds.
