The High Performance Organisation Programme
It's a big step for future general managers to make the step from management and leadership of technical functions to wider cross-functional responsibility, managing and leading through others. Unlock their potential and accelerate their success with our signature programme, which equips delegates to:
- Set clear direction for a winning strategy
- Build high-performance teams to deliver results
- Motivate and inspire others to be part of the journey
Building the High-Performance Organisation (HPO) will prepare your managers for senior leadership roles. Our 10-day programme takes place over 3 modules blended with online materials. Key elements of the programme are:
- Diagnostic tools to increase awareness of self and improve interactions with others
- Practical skills including communicating with impact, critical thinking and innovation
- Guidance in developing a personal leadership philosophy
- Team projects to address a current strategic business challenge
- A focus on peer feedback and personal reflection to accelerate development
- One on one coaching to support progress towards goals
The HPO programme will be tailored to align with your organisation’s existing development and competency frameworks.
At the end of the programme your leaders will have:
- Increased self-awareness to help navigate the challenges they face
- The ability to build teams which drive business performance in a complex world
- Confidence in their personal leadership style and the ability to bring others on the journey
- Positive ownership of their personal development goals
- A strong network to call on from across the organisation
NATO’s Communications and Information Agency approached Mission Excellence to provide a development programme for their high-potential managers and project leaders. The challenge they faced was a common one - a complex, multinational organisation formed by several mergers that needed to equip highly intelligent, technical project managers with the competencies to lead at a strategic level.
Alongside NATO, we developed a 10-day programme over 3 modules aligned with their existing leadership framework, and delivered 6 programmes over 3 years. The programme was a great success with 98% of delegates who attended the programme recommending it to other managers. Read more in our case study.
