The Leader’s Map is a 12 month blended leadership programme. 

Your leaders complete 8 modules backed by leading research that focus on a key topic or skill of leadership . Each module contains a number of lessons, covering key aspects of that module topic or skill.  

Before the programme begins, a Kickstart session brings all participants and other relevant stakeholders within your organisation together to learn about and launch the course.

Halfway through each module, participants meet in Peer Cohort Sessions  to share knowledge, and put learnings into practice.

At the end of each module an End of Module Group Coaching Session is held. All Participants meet to discuss learnings and support each other in their leadership journey. 

At the end of the programme we have graduation where leaders are recognised for completing the programme.

We selected Suzi’s Leadership programme after robust market review - and have never looked back. The modules are easy to digest, well paced, loaded with content, relevant and the learnings are easily applied to everyday leadership. Suzi also supports the programme facilitator with bespoke coaching and guidance, from agenda format to running the exercises, so you can be confident running the closing workshops.

I really liked the youtube video showing the coaching. It used a very relatable example! I also liked you describing the GROW model as being like a map so I could picture it easier.

The GETSET model is a great tool to utilize in preparation for managing performance. The golden rule still remains the same "Place yourself in your staff’s shoes."

The giving and receiving feedback module was very relevant to me - and was confronting in a good way! The articles were really good.

Really appreciated the small group work as it made people more comfortable expressing their opinion and thoughts.

Keep on doing what you are doing currently - whole course was great!
