What is LEAD?

LEAD is a ten-month leadership and business development programme for owner-managers, MDs and senior managers of small and medium sized enterprises.

Delegates tackle the real-life issues they face in business and make valuable connections with other business leaders, building a supportive peer-group environment.

Learning occurs through a range of formats including an Overnight Experiential, Masterclasses, Coaching, Action Learning, Shadowing and Exchanges, Learning and Reflection Days and further support is also available online.

Subsequently, delegates can have their learning on LEAD accredited and receive a Postgraduate Certificate (Leading Business) from the University of Gloucestershire which is one-third of the way towards an MBA.

Questions about LEAD

I cannot spend time away from my work. Won't LEAD end up costing my business?

We ask all delegates to make certain time commitments to LEAD in order for it to generate results. These commitments pay dividends. Independent research of alumni found that 97% believed their businesses had grown as a result of LEAD and 100% said that the cost of LEAD was justified. By taking time out, delegates find that they have more time as they focus more on important matters rather than being drawn into the daily minutiae.

Why is it so important to mix with other delegates?

Camaraderie is vital for the dynamics of the programme and for the individual. As a business leader you can often feel the issues you face are unique. Yet through discussion and interaction with other delegates, you can see how others are dealing with the same issues you face and evaluate what could work for your business too. There is also the opportunity to break free from the isolation of running your own business or department. Peer group learning and being part of a network of high-performing business leaders are real benefits.
