Core skills for senior directors

Senior directors often say they know the ‘what’ but not the ‘how

These learning sessions are about core skills for the front lines of change. We take into account the unique circumstances of managing, leading, and following at the same time. We concentrate on strengthening capacity.

Strategies and plans are about what to do — our focus is on how to go about it:

  • Identifying hidden obstacles to progress and what to do
  • Communicating in a way that connects with others
  • Collaborating with peers
  • Holding meetings people want to attend
  • Having difficult conversations
  • Creating proposals and presentations that stand out
  • Leading staff in other locations
  • Implementing when you disagree with the plan
  • Achieving outcomes by influence


Participants leave with practical knowledge they can be put to use right away.


  • Groups of 6, 8, or 12 people for 1.5 days + 1 day followup
  • Option to do one-on-one by video call or phone over 12 weeks
  • Either at your location or offsite
  • We work internationally
