LEAP: Leadership Excellence through Awareness and Practice

Giving senior executives the leading edge

Leadership is a lifelong process of continuous improvement and research shows that great leaders can – and should – continue to learn and develop throughout their career. But this is not always an easy process. All too often, senior leaders experience a knowing-doing gap. They know what they should be doing to improve their performance but lack the time, energy or techniques to put these ideas into practice. In addition, the more senior the position, the riskier it becomes to experiment on the job; errors by top managers can be costly for themselves, for the people they work with and for the company.

As a result, it is difficult for busy, successful and proud executives to practise new knowledge and new approaches, especially when they go against deeply ingrained behavioural patterns or long-standing habits. This is why we have created the LEAP: Leadership Excellence through Awareness and Practice programme.

LEAP has been designed to help you bridge the knowing-doing gap by identifying and internalising the new behavioural knowledge and responses you need to improve the way you lead.

Key benefits

  • Reflect on (and redefine some of) your leadership and personal objectives
  • Improve your understanding of your leadership style - its roots and its effect on you and others
  • Close the knowing-doing gap and really develop new capabilities through the selection of key areas for development and regular feedback and practice
  • Become a more reflective leader and increase your ability to keep learning in the future – your best competitive asset in a fast-changing world
