Lancaster Advanced Leadership Programme
Building on the success of the Global ALP, Lancaster has now developed an intensive version of the ALP concept, based on a single residential workshop and designed specifically for UK clients. In a radical departure from the traditions of MBAs and other senior leadership programmes the Lancaster ALP is designed to prompt senior leaders to:
- Reflect on their own experience as a key resource for future development, drawing on but not constrained by the contributions of leading thinkers in the field;
- Draw on the expertise of other programme participants as ‘friendly consultants’, bringing their knowledge and experience to bear on key issues;
- Work through a number of ‘mindsets’ or phases to gain new perspectives on strategic issues and their own leadership capabilities; and
- Work on ‘live’ challenges or issues they have brought to the programme, which are shared and developed during the course of the workshop.
This is a programme for leadership development, embedded in a process of organisational change.
It is designed to extend the capabilities of senior leaders, challenging them with new perspectives while they share and advance an issue of central concern to their organisation or sector.
“ALP was nothing short of fantastic in helping us work on what really mattered in the company. I cannot think of a better way to accelerate individual learning AND progress on fundamental company issues.”
