A flexible and personalised leadership course that offers modular learning and development for established leaders.
Meridian is an open leadership course for established leaders from all sectors and backgrounds.
Spanning a five month period, Meridian offers a flexible modular format that means leaders can tailor it to meet their individual needs and to match their diaries.
The course includes three full days when all of the participants gather - at the start, midpoint and end of the course. In addition, each leader chooses from over 20 events to explore a huge range of real-life challenges - based in anything from a prison to a casualty unit; a trading floor to a production plant; a small business incubator to a radio station.
The learning process facilitates constant exposure to each other, to the guest contributors and to the experience of operating in very unfamiliar situations.
"Meridian enhanced my confidence to lead even the most challenging tasks; to bite the bullet with tough decisions; to be courageous with what I believe to be the right thing to do for long term benefits; to engage stakeholders, particularly those from opposite camps; to base decisions on thorough analysis; to balance people and task issues and to stick to my core values and principles."
Meridian is for established leaders who are already experienced at delivering objectives and managing people and priorities. It is ideal for leaders who are responsible for developing partnerships, engaging with internal or external stakeholders, working across several locations, divisions or countries or who simply need to broaden their horizons.
Benefits to participants
"Hearing directly from the key leaders of different organizations their great insight and secret of success influenced the way I plan to lead in future."
Meridian participants complete a minimum of 50.5 hours of learning from around 110.5 hours of interactive learning modules. On each course day, the participants meet at a different venue within the area to give them a range of perspectives. On the three core days - at the start, mid-point and end - participants look at why, where and how they lead and at how their biases influence their leadership. Between the core days, participants select from a series of half-day modules.
Participants can choose to do some of their hours on a Meridian course in other international cities.
