Leadership and management development courses for the 21st century

Leadership and personal development courses designed to drive innovation and improve productivity with optional masters level qualifications

Our innovative short courses inspire the development of the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to deliver personal and organisational success in the 21st century. As a nation we desperately need to improve productivity and to do so we need to develop our leadership and management skills and also embrace intrapreneurship. This is the ultimate combination of being an entrepreneur, leader and manager. We have been advocating the concept of intrapreneurship since 2009 and as such we believe we are the UK’s leading provider in this field.

Based in Huddersfield – West Yorkshire, the epicentre of the Northern Powerhouse, we are also ideally placed to support participants and organisations across the region from Liverpool to Hull, Manchester to Newcastle or Bradford, Leeds, Sheffield and York. Corporate programmes are available nationally.

Our open-access courses are delivered to small mixed groups over full days (usually one day per month), to participants from all industries and sectors. Throughout, our highly experienced course tutors facilitate open lively debate and discussion using an action learning approach. In this way everyone benefits from each other’s experiences and interpretations of both well-proven and leading edge management theories and actual practice. Blended learning is supported through our Noddlepod online collaborative learning platform, to which all participants have access, as well as Management Direct.

Whether a highly experienced, practically skilled senior leader, an aspirational middle manager, an owner manager looking to grow themselves and their business or a professional knowledge worker leading diverse teams – the 21st Century Leaders course will probably be the one for you.

These courses are highly recommended and via our Chartered Management Institute recognition and approval, can lead to nationally recognised qualifications at masters level. If you think developing management skills is a pointless exercise, have a read of our Yorkshire Powerhouse blog article for an alternate view.
