Being a Chief Executive is a unique opportunity to make a real difference to our communities and society. As a senior leader, your leadership helps to inspire and galvanise people across your organisation to contribute to social change. However, being a CEO can sometimes feel quite isolated and all-consuming.
Delivered with an interactive approach, you will work with and learn from peers to explore a range of practical concepts and approaches that support you as a strategic leader. The programme focuses very much on the practice of leadership at a senior level, helping you to gain greater personal insight, different perspectives and awareness.
"The single most important determinant of the success of any organisation is the quality of its leadership.” Scottish Government’s Social Enterprise Strategy.
