DURATION, PREPARATION & MATERIAL
The programme will be completed over a period of 12 months (Parttime) through regular engagement (as outlined below) . Copies of the programme materials will be provided and delegates will receive a CPD certificate.
1. Assessment of development need (2 - 3 weeks)
This is key step in identifying the requirements for each individual and develop an overall strategy for the group. While a number of tools can be utilised for this stage of the programme, our experience has shown that an in-depth one to one structured session delivered the best outcome. ASL Global will complete a diagnostic interview with each participant. This diagnostic interview is an in-depth conversation with them to establish a baseline for our activities. It is expected to last 4 hours per participant.
2. Development Programme (6 months)
Based on the assessment of each participant a detailed plan is developed with a combination of group workshops and individual activities. Our coaches work closely with each individual during this period.
Six workshops (one day each) will be held at the beginning of every month to set the area of focus for the period. These facilitated workshops will support the personal development of the participant. These sessions will include:
• Exposure visits
• External speakers
• Group discussion
• Team building activities
• Reflection Touch Points One touch points per week to include:
• Reading for each participant to reflect on
• Cross department exposure activates • Coaching calls
