Advanced Leadership Development Group
After 20 years of running the flagship Leadership Development Group (LDG) programme for one of the world’s leading pig genetics companies, a need was identified for a higher level programme to support the continued growth of leaders with potential within the company. The Advanced leadership Development Group (ALDG) was developed by Cedar Associates in conjunction with the company.
The course has been designed to build on Managers past experience, challenge their current leadership skill and practice, and further equip them for the new and different demands of more senior roles. The programme causes leaders with future growth ambition and potential to recognise opportunities to improve, and decide on practical steps they can personally take to enhance the performance of their team, their part of the business, and themselves.
Management Development Programme
In September 2011 Cedar Associates were asked to provide Management Development Programme for the RDPE (Rural Development Programme for England), administered by Reaseheath College.
A gap had been identified for a training programme that equipped those business or social enterprises in the agricultural, food, forestry and woodland sectors with the following skills to enable them to operate more effectively; leadership, communication, counselling, handling conflict, team management, delegation, time management, planning and negotiation.
A four module programme, spread over 3 months, covering the following topics was developed:
- Communictaing Effectively
- Managing time and influencing others
- Leading and motivating staff
- Team building
As with all our programmes the course was run in a very interactive style, providing participants the opportunity to discuss their experiences, share concerns and raise ideas.
Following a successful initial intake in November 2011, we have since been asked run a further two programmes and have just launched a tier two programme which builds on the key skills established in programme 1.
