Executive Development at Henley
At the core of Henley’s philosophy is the belief that we need to develop managers and leaders for the future. We believe the challenge facing future leaders is the need to solve dilemmas through making choices. We work with both individuals and organisations to create the appropriate learning environment to facilitate the critical thinking skills to prepare for the future.
Our certificate programmes are aimed at managers requiring development across a broad number of disciplines in a single programme.
Executive Education Short Courses
A range of 2-day short courses critical to leadership in the current business and economic climate will be offered.
Corporate Learning Programmes
Henley Business School has recognized how the complexity of change has required a strongly focused value-adding approach. To achieve this we provide the following:
Firstly, a highly focused partnership approach that optimizes return on investment through delivering tailored interventions that reflect the culture and strategic imperative of the client organisation. This philosophy, which is supported by a substantial track record of success, has led to the creation of many successful and lasting alliances with client companies.
Secondly, we can offer a wide portfolio of integrated services ranging from delivering programmes through to advice and where appropriate conducting training needs assessments. This is further supported by other activities such as Centres for Excellence, Executive Qualification Programmes and Learning Resources.
Thirdly, we have access to a wide range of experts who have the necessary commercial and specialist experience that enables us to meet virtually any combination of client requirements on a highly practical and relevant basis.
A philosophy of partnership
Our philosophy is based upon complete partnership with you, our clients. We work to help you develop and retain talent, as well as create competitive advantage. Programmes are customised to fit tightly with the learning culture of your organisation. We can run programmes at your site, Henley Business School or a location of your choice. We can blend face-to-face teaching with online e-Learning, to reinforce a learning experience that involves the minimum amount of disruption to your business.
Henley’s programme directors foster and maintain close links with the key learning stakeholders in your organisation, that is, the managers responsible for sponsoring the programme internally (plus appropriate senior and line management). We undertake to understand your organisation, its people, culture and business issues, to ensure that the programme we design meets your objectives.
An interactive, practical approach
Henley’s programmes are highly interactive. They inspire participants to become actively involved in their own development, both as individuals and teams. The emphasis is placed on applying learning in a practical and innovative way that can be applied in the workplace. To ensure that programme participants gain access to the latest thinking and remain stimulated throughout the programme, we tailor a solution that draws on Henley faculty, external consultants, practitioners and academic experts.
