BUD Leadership Development Programme - Line Manager Information

I appreciate your support in getting the BUD Leadership Development Programme to this point.


Your people will be getting a welcome page like this soon, which will let them know what to expect from the programme, how to prepare to get the most from it and what to expect after each workshop.


I wanted to share this information with you so you can help the whole experience have the maximum impact possible. We know that the interest and support of the line manager plays a vital role in the amount of learning that is transferred back to the workplace from programmes like this.


How you can help the programme have maximum impact


We are asking each participant to identify a business challenge or opportunity that, if this programme helped to solve or progress, will add significant value to their business unit. If you can check that your BUDs have done this ahead of the session, that would really help the process.


Each BUD should give you an update in the BUR after each workshop. This update should include key insights and ideas they plan to implement and the implications of their learning. It will make a huge difference if you can follow up to ensure that they do this.


On the last day of the programme, the participants will present to the group, and the presentation will be recorded. Here is the full brief I have given them.


"On the last day of the programme, you will present to your fellow participants. This presentation will be recorded and shared with your line manager so you can review it together.


The presentation will include:


  • How this programme has helped you develop as a leader

  • How will it help your business unit be even stronger?

  • What impact will it have on your people, how engaged they are and their performance

  • How has your participation in the programme impacted on your identified business challenge or opportunity?"


Reviewing this video and debriefing it with your BUDs will help cement their key insights and ensure this programme has a long-lasting positive impact on their ability to lead their business units.


If there is anything else I can do to help you support them during and after the programme, please get in touch via richard@twentyoneleadership.com. I want to do everything I can to ensure that the investment that you and they are making in the programme has a significant impact.


The rest of this page is a duplicate of what the participants will receive ahead of the first workshop.


What to expect from the experience




How to prepare to get the most from the programme


I appreciate how busy you are, and it is vital to me that you feel that this programme is a highly valuable use of your time.


The sessions will be immersive, so it is really important that you do everything you can to fully focus on your learning during the workshops.


I would also highly recommend that you allocate some focused time in the two to three weeks after each face-to-face workshop to review your learning and ensure that you are applying your key insights from the programme.


To help you hit the ground running, I would also like you to reflect on the following and bring your thoughts to the first workshop:


  • What are your outcomes from the leadership workshops? If the experience helps you to be an even better leader, how will you know?

  • In your view, what is the distinction between leading and managing?

  • What key business issue or opportunity do you face that, if this programme helped to solve or progress, will add significant value to your business?


We will focus on the first two points during the programme's first session. The third, we will revisit throughout the experience to ensure we are creating real value in your business.


How will we measure the success of the programme?


The success of a programme like this lies in how much learning is transferred into your day-to-day work. To support this, we will ask you to complete a number of additional tasks.


Firstly, we will encourage you to keep a live learning journal. This should capture key insights from the programme and how you have used them in your business unit. The learning journal can be written, voice notes or video snapshots.


This learning will help with the next learning transfer task, which is to include a session in the BU review following each workshop to update what your key insights have been, what ideas you will implement, what the implications are and what will inhibit you from applying your insights.


Finally, on the last day of the programme, you will present to your fellow participants. This presentation will be recorded and shared with your line manager so you can review it together.


The presentation will include:


  • How this programme has helped you develop as a leader

  • How will it help your business unit be even stronger?

  • What impact will it have on your people, how engaged they are and their performance

  • How has your participation in the programme impacted on your identified business challenge or opportunity


Together, these will help us all to clearly understand the impact of the leadership programme.

One final note. I want this experience to be outstandingly valuable, regardless of whether it is your first leadership development programme or the latest of many. If there is anything that I can do ahead of the session to ensure that is the case, please get in touch via richard@twentyoneleadership.com.
