Module 3 builds on the learning of Modules 1 and 2, and continues to help those preparing to take on the role of Principal and CEO to be able to articulate purpose and set vision, think strategically and for the long-term, work with a complex set of internal and external stakeholders, develop and lead high performing teams, manage performance with strong commercial acumen, and have a deep commitment to delivering public value.


Module 3 continues our focus on the same core themes as the Preparing for CEO programme, which is a mix of strategic leadership and technical development. Key initial themes include adaptive leadership, understanding your leadership style, networking, reputation, culture and values, working collaboratively, resilience and understanding finance / possessing business acumen.
