Experiences from our Future Leaders of 2016 

Don't take our word for it! Here are a couple of blog posts by graduates of the 2016 Future Leaders Programme:

The Long-Term Benefits of a Leadership Approach

The ukactive Future Leaders course really opened up my eyes to new ways of learning and a great network of individuals from across the UK and Europe. 

The course was based within an excellent learning environment at IESE campus in Barcelona, which is tailored specifically for executive development in a cutting-edge environment. The carefully selected course material and lectures ensured balance between theoretical learning alongside practical industry-based discussion.

The experience has helped me to refocus on leadership and the longer term benefits of applying a leadership approach, rather than just a functional management focus. The classroom environment throughout the course challenged your thinking and helped shape your approach to difficult questioning and decision-making scenarios.

Why investing in our Future Leaders puts us on the path to prosperity

Clear career progression, regular sharpening of skills and targeted talent development are the bedrock of many industries. Whereas in the physical activity sector, we often rely more on the natural drive and passion of our people to achieve success in our fast-paced workplaces. But is that enough?

Having experienced first-hand the ukactive Future Leaders learning programme at the world class IESE business school in Barcelona this summer, I can now clearly see that it is time for a new approach. The nature of our service driven environments make it a challenge to step back from the day-to-day business, but this is essential to assess where we are going. Only through regular reassessment can we identify the real change that will lead to business growth and development in our sector.
