LearningCog’s Model of Leadership Programme

We designed our leadership development programme to support your team as they transition from managers to leaders. We start by looking at how to manage and drive performance whilst building capability to lead your organisation tactically and strategically. Based on the latest business and performance psychology we use cutting edge theories and structures to allow your leadership team to excel.

The Model of Leadership Programme follows a blended learning format. The core of this 12 month programme is the face to face delivery of workshops where leaders explore their own leadership style. Each leader completes a 360 review at the start and end of the programme and will be supported by a 121 coach through the course as well as attending action learning sets, completing self-directed learning and interacting with digital learning.

The three day workshop explores the role of a manager and the role of a leader, looking at the different skills used for each role and when the best time to use them is. We use the Discovery Insights Psychometric model to explore personal effectiveness and develop self-awareness. Who am I? Who are you? Who are we? - Inclusive of Discovery Insights Report for each delegate. The full workshop is designed to engage with each leader showing them the full model of Insights and how the four colours are represented. The workshop looks at a team effectiveness model and how the Insights colours can support team development moving forward from the day. During Part one of the programme we introduce leaders to Leadership and Behaviour Modelling – encouraging innovation and creative problem solving. Learners will look at what the Leadership Modelling Project is and start their personal project and plan for self-directed learning.

Part 2’s three day workshop starts with an Emotional Intelligence Masterclass. This masterclass is inclusive of the EQi2:0 Emotional Intelligence report. The whole first day takes time to look at Emotional Intelligence and fully understand what the key strengths are for each delegate within their role and organisational context. Emotional Intelligence looks at delegates’ ability to build long-term, productive, relationships, to influence others and motivate their teams. Success depends on how well they manage their emotions and the emotions of others. Emotional Intelligence is widely regarded as the number one behavioural skill for any great leader. From here we look at what makes an effective team and start to build an understanding of the Situational Leadership model for driving high performance. We complete the three days by looking at Coaching for High performance and develop skills around coaching techniques.

During this two day workshop we explore the wider context of change and identify adaptive changes which enable teams and individuals to respond to new and changing needs. Leaders and managers play an integral role as change agents within their organisation. The way they influence across the organisation is pivotal to the success of any change initiative. We take time to look at influencing skills and how to adapt style to better lead change. Develop a range of communication approaches to ensure that each leader is aware of the impact they have so that their teams feel informed and involved in the process. Day two of the workshop looks at skills around conflict resolution, managing conflict and understanding and developing a feedback culture.

The final part of the programme, this three day workshop looks at the complexities of managing and leading within organisations. Being able to develop strategic business skills, managing up, down and across the organisation. This takes place in a business situation exercise that all leaders take part in. The final stages of they workshop we look at the Model of Leadership where each Leader gets the opportunity to present back their personal research project to the group.

121 Coaching

Based on the 360 review results, delegates will form a coaching relationship with a suitable LearningCog coach who has the right strengths for that individual. This coaching relationship will last throughout the whole programme. 121 coaching sessions will take place once per-month for one hour outside of the workshops. Coaches will gain an understanding of the issues currently being faced in the organisation along with individual development needs.

Tools used on the programme

On this programme each leader will receive 3 full and detailed personal reports.

EQi 2:0 Leadership Emotional Intelligence

Emotional intelligence (EI) is a set of emotional and social skills that collectively establish how we perceive and express ourselves and use emotional information in an effective and meaningful way.

Cited by the World Economic Forum as one of the 10 skills you will need to thrive in 2020, understanding and developing emotional intelligence is crucial for Leadership success.

Insights Discovery Diagnostic Tool

Insights Discovery is an extremely useful tool in improving interpersonal effectiveness. Apart from the user- friendly system, another strength is its focus not only on knowing yourself but also on recognising others, adapting your style, and connecting accordingly. Leaders will fully understand how to use the tool and also receive their personal report.

My360Goals – 360 Feedback Report

360 feedback is one of the most useful, quick and easy ways to get feedback about skills and behaviours from the people that matter the most. The report is complied from feedback from Line Manager, Self, Direct Reports, Peer group and Others. This forms the basis of ownership of personal development and supports leaders in getting the best out of every stage of the programme.
