Director Refresh and Reboot! (2 days)

An interactive ‘refresh and reboot camp' for directors who would like to be freshly inspired and re-energised by the latest in leadership thinking.


This is an interactive ‘refresh and reboot camp' for directors who have attended various management training courses in the past covering the usual topics and would now like to be reminded of them, as well as freshly inspired and re-energised by the latest in leadership thinking:

• Brought up to date with the latest ideas on leadership, motivation and team work
• Using latest research from Harvard Business School and other leading institutions

At the end of the workshop delegates will feel more energised around their role as leaders and have a clear action plan as to how to put into practice the ideas they have learnt.

This is for you if:

  • You haven't attended any leadership training for some time and feel a bit jaded and in need of fresh inspiration
  • You find still spending too much time involved in the operational side of the business rather than focusing on strategy and leadership
  • You would like to be brought up-to-date with the latest thinking around strategy, leadership and motivation
  • You need to get your team/organisation back on track
  • You want some straightforward and impactful ideas on how to lead your organisation in the right direction
  • You want to check your strategic ladder is up against the right wall!
