About the programme
The day-long programme is designed in partnership with the council and focuses on the key leadership issues identified. The programme is delivered by a team of skilled LGA Advisers/Associates, an accredited peer, or other co-facilitators as appropriate.

The programme is designed for the council's leader and cabinet, however If the requirement is for joint development of the top political and management teams the chief executive and senior management team would also be involved in a joint event to explore the key issues together.

Depending upon the development need the programme might cover:

  • Roles and relationships
  • Team building (using the MBTI, TMS or Belbin Team Role tool if appropriate)
  • Leadership styles
  • Budgeting and financial monitoring
  • Performance management
  • Communication
  • Visioning.

Who is it for?
If you would like to discuss whether this programme is right for your council, initial enquiries should be made to your regional Principal Adviser.
