Oxford Strategic Leadership Programme

Partnering with organisations

We partner with a range of organisations around the world who nominate their talent to participate in this programme. If you are responsible for people development and wish to find out how you can benefit from partnership, we hope that you will find the information below beneficial.

What is the programme?

This flagship executive programme is a powerful transformational experience designed for senior leaders and executives, with at least 10 years' leadership experience, to challenge their leadership assumptions and think deeply and creatively about the issues they face as a senior leader. The six-day residential programme covers the key areas of leadership knowledge and skills through immersive workshops, lectures, group work and action learning. It will also provide leaders with the opportunity to review their approach to leadership and discover more about themselves. Leaders will have both the time and space to re-examine how they lead, and gain fresh insight into how they tackle the challenges they face.

How do organisations benefit?

The Multiplier Effect

Executives who attend the programme cascade their learning through their teams and into the wider organisation. This multiplication of learning provides a strong and consistent leadership pipeline and improves return on investment.

Shared Learning, Shared Language

Those who attend will return with a shared understanding of how to move the organisation forward, and a shared language through which to communicate it.

Learning through Diversity

The programme convenes Leaders from all over the world working in a broad range of industries. This diversity of thought allows those who attend to think beyond the bounds of their organisation or geography and co-develop new and innovative ways to support the future success of their organisations.

A Person in the Camp

Those who attend from your organisation will share conversations and experiences with executives from some of the world's largest organisations giving your organisation unparalleled access to a wider business community, globally.
