Enterprise Ireland’s Leadership 4 Growth Programme develops world-class business leaders equipped with the necessary visionary, strategic and innovative capabilities required to scale sustainable companies on the global stage.  Leadership 4 Growth is delivered in partnership with IESE Business School, in association with Learning Partnership

Leadership 4 Growth supports CEO's to:

  • Identify their own personal leadership potential and capability through development of leadership style, ambition and confidence;
  • Strategically analyse and evaluate their own business to make strategic choices for rapid growth;
  • Create a Strategic Growth Action Plan and robust strategic management / deployment framework for rapid growth and sustainability;
  • Identify and grow personal leadership with C-Suite and Board to grow a strong effective team to execute and implement step changes arising from the Growth Plan;
  • Understand the behaviours required to operate a culture of coaching / learning for continuous transformation and employee engagement.

The Programme comprises of three overseas week-long residential modules which cover:

  1. Dynamic Business Strategy
  2. High Performance Leadership
  3. Sustainable Growth 

Each participant will be assigned a Business Adviser/Coach who will encourage, challenge and assist them in implementing strategic frameworks and applying core leadership concepts to their companies. Each module is followed by a one-day Ireland-based Insights Session involving the participant’s senior leadership team. Insights Sessions aim to affect sustainable change within participating companies.  Customised one-day Masterclasses for CFOs and CHROs are a new additional element to the programme.
