iCan Lead Leadership Programme


This is a high level example of a programme that can be adapted to suit the specific needs of your organisation. The design of the programme will be influenced by your existing culture and the culture you aspire to achieve.

Our purpose is to develop the thinking and behaviours of leaders and managers within your organisation in order that they can create the best climate for their teams to be successful.

The programme can include the use of psychomentric profiling, 360 degrees appraisals and other leadership tools to help your leaders have a deeper understanding of their strengths and areas for further development.

All our workshops are highly interactive and challenge leaders to think ‘deep and differently.’ In order to embed the learning back in the workplace, we encourage the involvement of the leaders and managers of those on the programme through post-session development discussions.

Pre- and post work options are recommended on some of the sessions to help maximise the transfer of learning.
