This program is designed for leaders of leaders and leaders of teams, in particular:
Senior leaders with direct reporting responsibility to the CEO

Benefits of a consortium structure
The SLP is constructed as a consortium, with each participating organisation enrolling several members. A consortium structure combines the value that open enrolment programs bring by generating a diversity of participants together with the benefits that in-house programs have for effectively socialising new ideas.
Having several members from an organisation in a consortium structure leverages their shared knowledge, which in turn embeds new learning. In addition, several members returning to the workplace counteracts the natural resistance by others to new ideas. A key component of the SLP curriculum is social influence (leadership), which will help participants to overcome the natural uptake from colleagues who did not attend the program.
Ideally each organisation might enrol a minimum of 3 participants to achieve the maximum organisational value. The cohort size is capped at 20 participants.
