Improving performance by behavioural change.

The skills that a leader requires can be quite different from the skills that first got them into a leadership position in the first place. Softer skills, not technical, come more to the fore. So why do organisations rarely promote based on excellence in those skills, says IDG’s Ben Epps.read more

The opportunity for students to put theory into practice, experiment with different leadership behaviours and receive feedback from the highly experienced coaches and professional development experts from IDG will prove to be invaluable. The programme supports our employability skills agenda and ensures that Cass will continue to produce highly effective business leaders.Head of Professional Development, Cass Business School
FUSION is a change the bank programme, we have saved more money than it has cost to run this programme by a factor of 5, but we’ve also changed the culture of the bank. I’ve been on courses before FUSION which were labelled as management development type programmes and it wasn’t the kind of thing that left me buzzing. I remember going on Facebook the day after I finished FUSION and saying I’ve had a life changing experience. It was 8 years ago for me, I still feel I’m applying the learning I’ve had every day since then, and the value of FUSION just grows and grows.Global Head at a leading international bank
We had a tough and rigorous 3-days on the IDG Business Challenge. We were able to run the business in a safe situation, learn from our mistakes, recognise when we should be challenging each other especially our wider stakeholders and most of all work with others we don’t usually interact with on a daily basis. We also became very aware of our learning and development needs from a Senior Leadership Team perspective. Great activity and very stimulating. Thank you to the facilitators for their expertise in communicating finance in such a simple fashion… turning complexity into an easy learning experience.Middle East Electricity Company
IDG executed a superbly well received and thought provoking two days which asked our Graduates to consider their approach to the world of business from the view point of, firstly, being an effective follower before they consider themselves as leaders. The programme has served as a vital element to the core Graduate journey at the early stages of their career.Centrica Graduate Programme
