The Leadership Trust Foundation and Concern Universal are delighted to announce a new, exciting and innovative leadership development opportunity.

In 2013, new leadership development courses, building on The Leadership Trust’s renowned Leadership in Management and Leading with Impact courses, will be run for the first time in Malawi, southeast Africa.

Leadership Horizons combines ‘active learning’ -  learning by practice and experiment - with a more reflective, learner-led style, co-coaching style of leadership development. With a 39 year track-record in accelerating leader's performance, The Leadership Trust will concentrate on the areas of: how to engage teams in new ways, how to communicate better, build empathy and rapport with colleagues, how to give and receive feedback, how to develop personal resilience, how to listen…or put another way – how to be better at leading.

The course duration will be 4 days and delegates will have the opportunity to spend time visiting thecapacity building  work carried out by Concern Universal and developing a deeper understanding of the people and environment of Malawi.

The concept of Leadership Horizons is to take people from UK or western organisations and enable them to take part in a leadership development journey with people from Malawi. Those from Malawi will be from Concern Universal's staff in-country, along with staff from other NGOs, and Malawian Government personnel from national and district level positions of responsibility.

In today’s world, organisations need to take a more global, inclusive approach, considering the impact they have and how they affect others, wherever they live. Leadership Horizons enables delegates to gain meaningful insights and understanding of other cultures and what can be learned from those who have to achieve under some of the most challenging circumstances.

You will go home tired, but it will be that brilliant done-loads-learned-loads and seen-loads kind of tired.
