About this event

This programme is highly interactive, practical, and designed to allow participants to discuss and debate the qualities and behaviours of great leaders, including how to be an authentic leader, make a difference in their role, and deliver results for their councils. Participants can expect to have access to highly relevant local government sector expertise, including Chief Executives who will be invited to participate as guest speakers and discuss ‘leadership in practice’ as it applies to each topic. It is also expected that participants come willing to discuss issues and challenges they face under Chatham House Rule.

The programme has five face to face workshops, delivered over a five month period. There is a five week period between each workshop which allows participants time to implement some of the key learnings in their workplace with the support of their line manager. Participants form groups to meet up between the workshops to reflect on their own personal journey and discuss what it takes to be a great leader.
