Developed by a group of neuroscientists, psychologists, psychotherapists and executive coaches, involving over 900 interviews with executive leaders, the ELEVEN leadership programme is centred on attributes instead of competencies and utilises multisensory adaptive learning specifically designed to provide real and sustained behavioural change.

It begins with a self-assessment of your thinking and learning preferences to create a personal learning pathway completely tailored to you. Delivered over 9 months, the programme architecture comprises targeted, interactive and experiential modules within the contexts of self, others and place to achieve meaningful personal and professional development.
