The work of The Praxis Centre has been part of the School of Management for over 35 years, we are dedicated to leadership and management development by focusing on an individual's (or groups of individuals) personal development. Our focus has always been on the more advanced aspects of leadership development: what comes after the learning of general management and business function skills and knowledge fundamentals. Placing organisational awareness personal insight over knowledge transfer, our inspirational ground-breaking person-centred approach to learning has earned us a global reputation for impact by using experiential and innovative learning techniques.

Our distinctive approach to leadership development is carefully designed to complement other programmes in our portfolio. We build upon general management or specialist skills, elevating individuals or groups of individuals to their next level of development. Building on the knowledge and experience they have already acquired. This could be the final ‘polish’ ahead of, or just after, a promotion. Or it could be elevating a particular aspect of leading themselves or others. Or it may just be in the realm of enhancing their impact as a leader through the way they conduct themselves or manage their, increasingly virtual and media dependent, leadership presence.
