About this course

This is a three-part residential programme which draws together a balanced portfolio of participants from a wide variety of different backgrounds and with different experiences who share a common interest in operating in and around the strategic leadership space. 

The residential nature of the programme, and the calming influence of Beckett House, at the Defence Academy of the United Kingdom, provides a great opportunity for delegates to reflectively assess their current performance as a leader.
