Building agile leadership

Leadership Development

Creative Metier delivers innovative Leadership Development Programmes within institutions, across networks and multi-country institutions to bring about a step change in the development of senior leadership.

Our programmes often integrate bespoke tools such as the 360º Feedback Survey and the HR Diagnostic alongside follow-on Executive Coaching for effective achievement of institutional and individual objectives.

Building agile leadership

Agile leaders constantly manage the dynamic interface between the institution’s external and internal operating environments to deliver their institution’s purpose and strategy. The agile leader delivers above and beyond expectations, developing their staff and their institution as an exciting and responsive context in which to grow and learn. Deeply integrated into the working environment, Creative Metier’s programmes are designed to meet the specific needs of its clients. Highly practical, engaging and interactive, they draw on the actual challenges that participants are facing. The Executive Coaching that follows many of our leadership workshops enables participants to apply what they have learned to achieve and exceed their objectives.

Capacity building and succession planning

Creative Metier has developed a systematic way to identify the type of role in which an individual can make their best contribution towards the success of the institution. Our Career Development Diagnostic clarifies the types of decisions that the individual is comfortable making, and hence their current and potential ability to perform roles at different levels in the institution as it grows and develops. The process seeks feedback from their managers and gives the institution sight of staff potential and their development needs. The process is entirely supportive of the individual and supports systematic career development, capacity building and succession planning.

Leadership Development Programmes

Leadership programmes are a key element of our leadership development work. Programmes are designed to meet the specific needs of the participants and their operating context and often include longer term support such as Executive Coaching. They may also make use of our suite of tools including the 360º Feedback Survey.

A typical workshop programme might include understanding the strategic context, stakeholder mapping, understanding and addressing institutional vulnerabilities, understanding and developing the senior leadership team, developing a performance culture, managing performance, and delivering impact through participants’ own leadership roles.
