“My one regret was not taking time out at Millbrook before I began the Programme to clear my mind of all the normal work clutter and stress so my brain was free to absorb the course from the beginning. By Day 3 – when I had finally parked work and switched off the blackberry -- I wanted to go back and start the Programme over again so as not to miss one precious moment!

This is not just another leadership course. This is an experience. The ISL leadership team have developed and fine tuned a programme that combines group, syndicate, and one-on-one sessions with individual reflection to virtually guarantee that the messages stick – not just for a few weeks of “high, but for a lifetime of work and family life.

When your career clock ticks over for forty years in education you might think that you have either been to or heard of all the various combinations of approaches to training and development that are possible. The Strategic Leadership programme run in the remarkable setting of the Millbrook Resort by the Institute for Strategic Leadership proved that I was mistaken.
With its unique and innovative combination of self-reflection, informed appraisal, testing and reporting, syndicate activity and excellent presentations over six days I was gently and, at times, not so gently led to a point where I understood with clarity the need for change in the way I worked. Using the tools I was introduced to by the programme I developed a strategic approach to making changes and return to work with a plan of action which was implemented by with the help of my team.
The results are already evident. I am continuing the coaching started on the programme – there must be no sliding back!
