(PRWEB) February 23, 2009
Henley Business School has launched its new programme of executive development courses aimed at helping organisations to develop effective leadership and the right calibre of managers to survive and thrive in today's turbulent economic times.
Henley's executive development courses (http://www.henley.reading.ac.uk/executiveeducation/cl-openedp/cl-ourprogrammes.asp ) are focused on building and enhancing leadership quality and management capability.
Evidence suggests that organisations which invest in management training and leadership development are able to operate more effectively both in the current difficult economic times as well as being better placed to take advantage when the economy returns to a period of growth.
Informed by the latest business research and ongoing feedback from clients, Henley's programmes have been strengthened and extended to provide even more relevance and applicability to those charged with delivering effective leadership. New programmes being offered include 'Profiting with Sustainability' and 'The Advanced HR Business Partner Programme'.
As part of an extensive executive education (http://www.henley.reading.ac.uk/executiveeducation/cl-home.asp ) offering, which also includes both customised and tailored qualification programmes, these management courses and leadership courses are designed to create immediate impact back in the working environment and make a real difference to an organisation.
As well as a comprehensive range of leadership programmes, Henley is able to offer an innovative and cost-effective way for organisations to share ideas on business leadership through its Thought Leadership (http://www.henley.reading.ac.uk/executiveeducation/thought-leadership/cl-thoughtleadership.asp ) Groups. These forums allow clients to explore their key issues in a confidential and pragmatic manner to develop and understand good practices with real business benefits. Linda Irwin, Executive Director, Corporate Development at Henley Business School, said: "Our agenda is driven bottom-up from clients who tell us what's keeping them awake at night. In today's environment this client intimacy allows us to provide a unique offering with significant tangible benefits to them."
In addition to their executive education and leadership development courses, Henley Business School also holds a series of invitation-only keynote addresses by top business leaders throughout the year.
