Leadership Programmes

Leadership in a changing landscape requires leaders to shift away from a position of being the “problem solvers” who deal with the challenges. Instead, leaders must move towards a position where they display higher levels of agility and interpersonal capability, and enable others to anticipate, engage and make progress in a dynamic world.

Leaders must understand and be accountable for being ‘learner role models’, embedding these habits and behaviours in their own leadership style, whilst inspiring their teams and networks to do the same.

As part of their commitment to your future, RS Components are offering you the chance to enrol on Discovery’s apprenticeship programmes, designed to develop leadership skills.

I was very excited about the course, I was really interested to learn more about myself and behaviours of others, what I didn’t expect was to come away and truly be looking at myself and how I can be much better in such a thoughtful and self-challenging way. I will be doing everything I can to keep myself in this space as I believe it will really help me develop as a leader and as an individual.
