Self-Managing Leadership® (SML) Programme

The SELF-MANAGING LEADERSHIP Programme (SML®) is one of the world's most successful leadership development programmes, with over 900,000 participants to date. The programme addresses and develops the character of a leader through a process of self-discovery and action planning. The SML programme provides leaders with the tools they need to manage themselves first, as a springboard to aligning and guiding their people.
Turbulent times call for extraordinary leadership
Effective leaders know that times of uncertainty can be opportunities to steer themselves, their organisations and their teams, in clear and constructive new direction. A lack of personal and strategic focus makes this process more challenging. Effective leadership is not simply about strategy; it is also about character and the relationship between the leader and the team. These relationships are fundamentally built upon having the right conversations, with the right people, at the right time.
Programme Overview
Through careful introspection and guided facilitation, you will:

    Oxford Leadership's Self-Managing Leadership programme was by far the most powerful and moving course I have ever attended in my entire professional career. Brian's vision and foresight has helped me deal with many difficult situations both personally and professionally.
