    Why Advanced?

    The Alumni Programme is designed to help you further your organisational ambitions. Our programme is experiential in nature - less classroom, more hands on, more ‘AHA’ moments. And through your experiences you will form bonds that last a lifetime, an invaluable network that stretches beyond the duration of the programme. The details of each day are set out below:

    Day 1. Foundation day

    · Reinforce your Reflective learning practices to develop growth and leadership insights

    · Understand how to implement a culture of coaching to grow your organisation

    · Prepare for personal growth with the ILM Mental Toughness questionnaire

    · Meet and engage with your peers and Leadership Development Specialists

    Days 2 and 3. Challenging Leadership Experiential

    How sharp are your growth drivers? Could you improve your network for growth? Do you understand how resilient you are? During these two days you will have the
    time to engage with your peers and leadership development specialists and have the opportunity to:

    · Sharpen your purpose, vision and goals

    · Learn to challenge assumptions (both your own and those of others)

    · Understand your mental toughness evaluation

    · Design your Personal Development Plan

    · Strengthen your growth network

    Day 4. Leading the Challenge of Change Masterclass

    For growth to happen, change must happen too. And the world is changing faster than ever. As a leader of growth this experiential Masterclass
    will help you:

    · Understand the reasons for change in your organisation and environment

    · Analyse the attitude to change of those involved in your change processes

    · Manage and implement change in your workplace

    We will help equip you with the knowledge you require to anticipate and embrace the transitions of growth

    Day 5. The Value Proposition Masterclass

    Articulating a message that suppliers, management, employees, and customers all understand is one of the most critical priorities for effective growth, from entrepreneurial upstart to global player.

    You will have the opportunity to:

    · Establish the critical questions you need to answer

    · Learn to create authentic meaning and purpose behind your message

    · Discover how to align your team’s goals and improve your team’s ability to articulate it

    · Work on your Value Proposition Canvas, an extremely useful growth tool to help you and your team address your Value proposition challenge on an ongoing, agile basis

    Day 6. Strategies for Growth Masterclass

    How geared are you for growth? What happens if you don’t grow as fast as or faster than your competition? If you don’t grow - you get smaller - because, invariably,
    your competition is growing. This Masterclass, hosted by Professor Paul Hannnon, is designed to help you:

    · Recognise your organisational capabilities and to understand how to lead capability driven growth

    · Understand your Nucleus and how to lead Nucleus Growth strategies

    This ION Masterclass is designed to help you create the environment and establish
    the principles and values
    conducive to high-performance innovation.

    Day 8. Inspiring people in a high growth environment

    High growth environments take their toll on teams. Constant
    pressure to perform while integrating new team members can cause cultures to
    drift, values to vanish and the organisation’s purpose to blur. This ION
    Masterclass is designed to help you steer your ship while keeping the crew focussed, productive and happy.
