"The Strategic Leadership course is a journey of self discovery made with a group of strangers who become good friends. The key learnings I have gained from this course will have a major impact on my leadership effectiveness. I heartily endorse this course to other leaders who want to take the step up."

"If you are smart enough, and brave enough, to want to take a good look at yourself as a leader, at your strengths and your weaknesses, and how you influence and impact on the performance and attitudes of others, for both the good and bad, then the ISL Strategic Leadership Programme is for you.
The week at Millbrook was exhausting, but exhilarating and enlightening. It showed me in the clearest terms, how I function, how others function, how I can change for the better if I want to and how my actions (intentional and unintentional) can impact on those I am lucky enough to lead. Do the programme; you’ll get what I mean."

"Not often do you get the opportunity to truly reflect on where you’re at, professionally and personally, learn to read how you and different groups are ‘wired’, be inspired by some truly outstanding people, and discover what it takes to become a world-class strategic leader.
The Strategic Leadership Programme delivers all this in a very powerful and memorable way, by combining the skills and experience of professional and lifestyle coaches, with the unique perspective of those you work closest with. I can absolutely recommend this course to anyone interested in accelerating their leadership capability and effectiveness to a new level."

"The Strategic leadership Programme at Millbrook gave me a rare opportunity to step back from everyday life and reflect on what I want to achieve in the future and how I can become a more effective leader.
What I valued most was that the course was focused much more on "learning by doing" than theory. What made this approach so unique and valuable was the opportunity to learn from a range of very talented colleagues on the course from both the private and public sector.
Millbrook was also the perfect setting for reflection!"
