Course content

"This programme has had the most significant impact on my reflective practice. I thought I was reflective before, but attending this marked a pivotal point in my leadership journey and I am now more acutely self-aware and observant of my impact on others." Georgia, Group Captain, Royal Air Force.

At the Bristol Business School, our portfolio of Open Programmes offers you and your business a flexible learning solution.

Professional Practice in Self Leadership (formerly Personal Mastery in Leadership) is a unique, reflective programme that explores the concepts of self-leadership and identity in the workplace. It is designed to help you develop greater self-awareness and knowledge around your personal identity, values, beliefs, aspirations and well-being, and how these factors contribute to your personal and professional effectiveness.

This programme further facilitates a critical understanding of impression management and the impact you may have on others with a view to helping you enhance your professional practice and your ability to lead yourself and others.

Programmes in our Open Programme portfolio can also be taken as part of a full programme qualification. For example, successful completion of this programme, enables you to achieve 15 credits towards the attainment of a PG Certificate in Leadership and Management.

To obtain the full PG Certificate in Leadership and Management, you will also need to attend and complete the assessment for Leading Change Programme (15 credits) and the Strategic Leaders Programme (ILM Level 7) (30 credits). The latter also provides you with an ILM Level 7 qualification.
