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.

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.

Programme outline

Day one

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.

Day two

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.

Day three

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.
