This programme introduces senior leaders to the role of the director and enables them to gain an understanding of the effective director’s mind-set, while practising some of the key skills and behaviours that drive high-performing boards.
Designed to help delegates identify the director competencies they already have, and the ones they need to develop to progress to board-level, the programme builds confidence and provides a practical foundation for future learning. It also offers valuable peer-networking opportunities.
This two-day course provides all the support and inspiration you need to shift your skills and behaviours to successfully make the transition from manager to director. This engaging and highly interactive programme provides the perfect environment in which to take the crucial next steps towards your first director position.
During and after the course you will have access to the IoD Digital Academy and app, allowing you to complement your learning with bite-sized CPD, accessible whenever and wherever you choose.
Alongside practical knowledge, skills and mind-set, the Aspiring Directors course aims to increase your confidence in making important business decisions, handling queries and conflicts that may arise within senior management teams and – most importantly – putting yourself forward for new opportunities and roles that will enhance and further your career as a director.
To do this, your course leaders and fellow delegates will provide you with regular feedback, and reflective and consolidated learning will encourage your next steps towards the boardroom.
You’ll be given the chance to create a professional development plan and actively plot the next steps in your learning journey, as influenced by your time on this programme.
The Aspiring Directors course is delivered to a small-sized group to ensure you receive an intimate and tailored learning experience, with personalised advice and guidance throughout.
