See what some of our past participants had to say about their experience on the Advanced Leaders Programme :
- For me, one of the best things about the ODI’s Advanced Leaders Programme was its consistent focus on the application of learning to practice. This was achieved by integrating excellent theoretical content, delivered by wonderful presenters, with a range of really user-friendly tools and personal appraisals. In the words of Da Vinci, “knowing is not enough, we must apply”. Having graduated from the course with a personal Leadership Development Plan that’s both aspirational and achievable, that’s precisely what I now intend to do!
Nicola Woodward, CEO
- From the very beginning, the course outline impressed me. The Key Themes, Competencies Framework, Leadership Model, 360-degree review, Learning Journal, Reflective Practice Tool, and the allocation of a Leadership Coach, all indicated that this course was one with genuine promise of real outcomes and authentic strategies for change and personal improvement. I was not disappointed! Through the course, I have changed personally, understanding myself and the key attributes of my own leadership capabilities far better; gaining areas to strengthen and work on for the future (including very tangible and deliberate strategies and actions to take, to make this possible).
This is not a course for the faint-hearted! Only take it if you want real understanding, real change! However, if you are willing and prepared to change for the better, I have not come across a better course in the 30 years of my working life. Outstanding!
Peter Lawry, Finance Manager
- The Advanced Leaders Programme definitely exceeded my expectations. All of the tutors were outstanding and the group of people on the course became very close and helped each other to learn and grow. This is by far the best training or development course I have done and I recommend it to anyone who wants to take a step up.
