About the programme
A one week programme designed to prepare leaders as you navigate an increasingly complex and uncertain business environment.
You will make vital practical connections between your personal leadership style and the organisational challenges you face as a senior manager. The programme will help you develop heightened self-awareness and enhance your impact with leadership strategies, and deliver practical techniques and frameworks.
Each day on the programme is themed, covering:
- Building self-insight as a leader
- Enabling high performance through others
- Crucial conversations and solutions
- Strategic choices in leadership
- Extending leadership impact
Your learning will be contextualised with the support of an Executive Coach. They will investigate your personal and organisational objectives and work with you to build an action plan to put into practice when you return to your organisation.
An introduction to the programme
What our alumni say
The biggest change that Oxford has brought in me is where I invest time. I want to be more impactful – I reflected a lot on that in Oxford and deeply questioned myself – what is the real priority in my role? I adapted and adjusted a lot thanks to Oxford, and it's working.
- Leadership assessment tools collected and analysed
Focus on how to interpret the results of your pre-programme 360 degree evaluation and NEO personality assessment, and discuss strategies for addressing your development areas with a professional coach.
Explore how leadership impact can be extended, how you can build high quality relationships at work and how to convert relationships into high performing teams.
Focus on leadership decision-making and learn and how to become more effective. You will explore ideas around leading change, how to make it happen, and how to influence those around you to contribute to the success of your change agenda.
Gain strategies for achieving positive outcomes when dealing with difficult conversations or corrosive relationships. You will then participate in a group coaching session where you will be able to explore your individual challenges in-depth in a small peer group.
Explore ways to extend your impact beyond your team and direct reports and into the wider organisation and society. Authority is not always a viable way to lead, we focus on how to lead through influence.
