Our senior management development programme is specifically designed by CMD Group with today’s senior managers in mind and is at the forefront of leadership development training.
This coaching and training programme offers a unique management development journey of deeper learning and long-term behaviour change. It is especially designed for management teams who want to take their emotional intelligence, people management, business acumen, organisational change and leadership skills to a higher level:
Only when we know ourselves, individually and as a team, can we successfully lead others. Senior managers, are at the helm of the company and should be responsible for driving success and business growth forward through business processes, personal development and people management – creating a culture of high performance, accountability and engagement.
Functional management teams make higher quality decisions, problem solve efficiently and accomplish more in less time, with less distraction and frustration. Working effectively together, understanding how each member operates, breaking down and eliminating obstacles along the way, rewards in continued success and growth on a personal and professional level.
Our Unique Programme Consists of Two Phases:
Phase One – ParadoxTM Coaching for Each Manager

- Running and interpretation of key reports by CMD Group
- 4 coaching & development sessions per senior manager (1hr 1-1 / two-week periods plus action assignments).
Phase Two – Final Senior Management Team Development Day – Bringing it all Together
Following the individual development sessions, as a group the team will now explore all strengths and development areas and work together to develop actions going forward in order for the team to work more effectively and efficiently for the growth of the business.
