Leadership Programme for Housing 2013

Training programme details


“The Leadership programme is transformational and I would highly recommend it for the whole leadership teams within organisations”

Julie Fadden, Chief Executive, South Liverpool Housing Group

Designed to enhance the strategic and organisational leadership skills of the participants, the programme features a highly respected faculty who work closely with participants to share academic insights and best practice.  Although clearly designed to meet the needs and concerns of leaders in social housing, insights and examples of effective leadership will be drawn from a wide range of sectors and contexts. As the challenges of social housing have evolved, so has the programme.  Within a broad, multi-disciplinary curriculum, topics include interpersonal leadership effectiveness, strategic leadership, performance measurement, innovation, change leadership, collaborative relationships, reputation management and many more.  Although the programme is designed to support the personal leadership development of the participants, the emphasis is on bringing the learning and insights into practice to benefit the organisations and their stakeholders. 

Why should you attend?

  • You will be working alongside a faculty team that will allow you to explore and debate a wide range of leadership topics in an interactive and supportive environment
  • You will build a strong supportive network with peer leaders from within the social housing sector and be able to share ideas, challenges and best practice
  • You will become a more effective contributor to the leadership of your organisation by drawing on insights and ideas from a wider range of sectors and contexts
  • You will be able to deal more confidently with interpersonal challenges and develop strategies to enhance team and organisational effectiveness.

The programme consists of three modules on topics that support leadership effectiveness.  Although most participants attend all three modules, depending on availability, it is possible to attend fewer modules if required.

The 2013 programme will be held at the Marriott Forest of Arden Hotel and Country Club. In the heart of the West Midlands near Solihull, the Forest of Arden is the perfect location for business events. This four star hotel is centrally located within easy access of the M6/M42 and M40, and just four miles from Birmingham NEC, Birmingham Airport and the International Train Station.
