Cranfield’s High Performance Leadership Programme explores aspects of yourself using a blended and networked learning approach so that you can become the best leader you can be. Read more Read less

The climate of uncertainty, potential for economic protectionism, and more complex organisation dynamics are contributing to a more turbulent environment and new normals for leaders.

High Performance Leadership is designed to help senior executives and those in leadership positions who need to define their ideal leadership self, influence and negotiate with others, and unite and inspire people to achieve results. It helps you tackle real-world challenges by embedding new leadership practices, utilising the latest learning design and technological advances to provide a fully immersive programme to ensure your immediate and long term success.

Built on 25 years of continuous development, Cranfield’s High Performance Leadership programme has helped underpin Cranfield’s approach in developing world class leaders. The programme’s constant evolution has supported the methods behind Cranfield’s global top ten Financial Times ranking position (2016), as well as informed our EFMD award-winning programmes.

“The first person to hold belief in a leader must be the leader.”
Andy Logan, Programme Director

What you will learn

High Performance Leadership helps leaders discover how they most effectively influence others, while navigating within what are increasingly complex ‘matrix’ ecosystems, all the time juggling multiple and often unclear responsibilities.

Completing this four-month programme will enable you to:

  • Develop a richer in-depth understanding of your unique leadership ‘core’
  • Understand how your unique leadership ‘core’ can be developed in a practical way
  • Develop the confidence to negotiate through uncertainty while inspiring the people you lead
  • Achieve a greater clarity of purpose and direction
  • Be more capable of delivering results in a resource constrained environment

Core content

Evidence and experience tells us that leadership development cannot happen in the classroom alone. This is why The Praxis Centre for Leadership Development utilises a blended learning approach.

There are three modules:

  1. The calling to leadership
  2. The leadership journey
  3. Galvanise leadership growth
