Read the evaluation of the LEAD programme
Leading Enterprise and Development (LEAD ®) is a ten month intensive leadership and management programme, specifically designed for owner-managers, MDs and senior managers of small to medium sized businesses that are growing or have the potential to grow.
The programme concentrates on two areas – the personal development of the owner - manager and the business itself, providing a framework for the leader to innovate, grow the business and increase profitability and productivity.
LEAD delegates tackle real-life issues within their businesses within a supportive peer group environment to find practical solutions. Since 2004, LEAD has been successfully delivered to over 2000 SMEs across England and Wales, who have, on average, seen an increase in turnover (55%), increase in productivity (65%) and increase in profitability (70%).
LEAD is launching in London on 25th September, 2013. To find out more, contact LEAD London here. Follow LEAD London on Twitter @LEADLondon.
LEAD is an evidence - based programme developed by The Lancaster University Management School. It is based on rigorous academic research and extensive practical experience of working with SMEs.
This is an SME leadership programme that has been independently evaluated and proven to develop outstanding leadership skills in business leaders while producing tangible benefits for the businesses.
LEAD is aimed at business owners who are committed to their personal development and the growth of their businesses. The ten month programme requires time, a willingness to engage with peers and contribute to sharing learning experiences.
Seven diverse elements of learning and support are delivered through the programme. Each of these elements provoke business leaders to think critically and apply their learning within their individual business context.
