The Ardmac Emerging Leaders and Future Leaders Programme in conjunction with Trinity college Dublin was a five day management learning experience which featured a selection of executive and emerging leadership disciplinary areas.
The programme was an investment in the retention and development of current and future leaders in Ardmac. The aim of the programme was to develop the skills in both management and leadership to ensure that Ardmac has a bench of successors for key roles in its future leadership team.
Participants were supported to understand their role as a leader and to consider their leadership style. Focus was also given on effective management and strategic development of participant’s functional areas. Time was spent on the development of emotional intelligence, client and stakeholder management and very importantly resilience in a changing world.
This is the second programme Ardmac developed and coordinated with Trinity Business School, it has proved to be an effective partnership and was a great opportunity to learn in an – off site environment and for participants to meet with and hear from some great thought leaders from the Trinity Business faculty.
The added bonus was it also gave the participants the opportunity to meet and network face to face with colleagues as many of our European and UK employees travelling to Trinity for the programme.
Ardmac’s continued investment in people and development is in support of their vision to be workplace of choice for great people.
