Graduate Development Taster Programme at Sandhurst
A 2-day complimentary programme exploring the progression to Senior Leadership & the challenge of ‘leading through others’ at the strategic level, to take place at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst
Who is this for?
You want to increase the leadership capability of your organisation.
You are an executive, senior HR person, or similar organisational decision maker.
As well as developing established employees, part of our skillset is creating programmes for early career development. Whether it be “bootcamps” for hundreds of starters at Sandhurst, large scale induction events at the clients premises, or bespoke content to sit along an established curriculum, this year alone we have helped welcome over 500 new starters for various clients.
The Taster Programme in December will go into more detail about how we can help attract the top talent by creating an induction programme that is truly unique and rewarding. If this is of interest to you, a colleague or a friend, then you can find out more and sign up for the complimentary programme HERE.
What is the aim of the programme and what will be covered?
As well as stimulating thought and debate on issues of importance to an aspiring senior leader, the programme is designed to give participants (and through them, yourself) a feel for IDG’s style and the development methodologies it employs so that we can showcase our services to you in the hope that we may be able to assist you with any learning and development in the future.
We will be exploring areas such as the implicit theories of leadership, followership, strategic team decision making, personal challenges of leadership, a look at Sandhurst’s leadership lessons, many of which are transferable into business along with a range of practical activities to draw out key messages as well as covering the psychology around change and influence and finally some personal commitments.
Overview and Aim
This programme will provide high potential Leaders with a developmental experience designed to enhance their strategic thinking and practice around:
- Developing how they see themselves as individual leaders with strategic responsibilities
- How they see themselves as part of a collective leadership – that runs as a thread throughout the business and encourages every member of a company to feel responsible for achieving some or all of “The Plan”
- Understanding, shaping and cascading the business’s strategic plans and policies and the role of leadership – at all levels – in that process
Key Learning and Development Objectives:
- An enhanced understanding of their personal and professional development issues

- Rethinking Leadership as a ‘meaning maker’ – exploring the role of the leader as an agent for change, thought leader and role model
- Setting Organisational Context – “What am I doing here and Why?”
