Advanced Leadership Programme

Advanced Leadership Programme

Updating leadership skillsets is a fundamental requirement for senior managers in today’s dynamic business environment. EADA has tailored a course for alumni to meet these requirements.

This 16 hour intensive executive boot camp provides a deep dive into how you, as individuals, can develop skills to make better decisions to positively impact the teams you lead. By connecting critical thinking with system thinking you will understand the importance, and develop the competencies, to "unlearn" what you know, which might be redundant, and replace it with new learnings, which is required for changing and complex contexts.

Be able to recognise patterns, seemingly tangled and contradictory, in order to "unpick" and unlock systems within the organisation
