  • Module 3: “Manager coach”
  • Module 4: “Manager leader”
  • Module 5: “Manager leader coach”

The programme concluded with participants presenting casestudies on how implemented and applied the learning in the role as leaders within the organization. On completion of each participant gained certification as recognition of achievement.

“In the sixth edition of the Stevie Awards for Great Employers, the judges were impressed by all of the nominees, who – during the crises we’ve confronted this year and last – continue to dedicate each day to making the lives of their employees and teams better through training, software, work-from-home plans, and more. We look forward to celebrating the Stevie winners’ achievements during our November 17 virtual awards ceremony,” said Maggie Gallagher, president of the Stevie Awards.

Cyril Bizot- Director at The Oxford Group said “The participants have been encouraged to immediately put their learning into practice, with 200 leaders across the organization doing this at the same time this has resulted in notable impact on leadership culture. This coupled with the incentive of working towards certification/qualification on completion of the programme created a highly engaged learning environment”.
