New frontiers for development

An action-learning journey for organisational and personal development

Developed and delivered with IMA International, this learning programme is for managers and leaders within international development who want to understand and experience our approach to making connections reflectively, and turn this into practice. The learning takes place over a period of 8-12 months, with three face-to-face modules and linked remote work. It is an opportunity for personal growth and development as well as a way of cultivating resilience and critical thinking for dealing with rapidly complex change processes. For more details, click here

Module 1: Macroeconomic challenges: Introduces participants to new economic thinking in relation to key economic issues and provides techniques to critically review these issues.

Module 2: Effective organisations in the face of macro level challenges: Uncovers the assumptions, both personal and organisational, which lie behind every intervention in development and opens a debate on how to deal with complexity from an organisational leadership perspective.

Module 3: Effective leaders in a complex world: An opportunity to learn and experience the process of becoming an effective leader within your organisation in the face of macro level challenges.
