Evaluating Outstanding Leadership

Thursday, 30 September 2010
09:00 - 13:00
The Work Foundation, 21 Palmer Street, London SW1H 0AD

Principal Partner Exchange Forum: Outstanding Leadership

Evaluating Outstanding Leadership

Guest Speakers:

  • Robert Pollock, head of climate change and energy, environment and transport tax, HM Treasury
  • Cathy Shovlin, head of HR and organisational development, Royal national College for the Blind

The Work Foundation has been working hard on the second phase of our ‘outstanding leadership’ research – testing the characteristics of outstanding leadership as described in the first report Exceeding Expectations: the principles of outstanding leadership.

The second phase involved designing a leadership intervention to develop outstanding leadership in a group of senior managers. We are currently evaluating its effectiveness to see what changes participants in the programme and their peers report to draw some conclusions about how ‘developable’ these outstanding leadership characteristics really are and what impact this has on the participants and their organisations.

This is an invitation-only event.  For more information, please contact Susannah Mountfort on 020 7976 3509.
