The program is delivered via a sophisticated mix of synchronous and asynchronous online learning enabling pioneering collaboration across systems, regions and countries. During the program participants co-construct their learning, shaping their direction through guided exploration and meaningful peer level interaction:

ELP empowers participants through a journey of transformation within a global context. It does this by creating an online Community of Inquiry where participants are ‘active deliberators in action’ and facilitators of change in a global educational setting.

The ELP is designed for high performing leaders. It will offer a deep dive into trends, themes and research in global education and provide participants with strategy, innovation, social capital, ethics, networking, and diversity in which to co-construct their skills and understandings. 

In a collaborative facilitated online environment participants can navigate the complexities of acting local while thinking global with colleagues to bring about transformation in themselves, their work and their environments.

The International Executive Leaders Program (ELP) is a new, exciting and innovative collaboration between the International Confederation of Principals (ICP) and NESLI. 

OVERVIEW

 

Core content is accessible via NESLI’s learning management system (LMS) allowing participants to engage with it at any time from any device. Content includes high quality video tutorials, live participant discussion boards, ‘best practice’ globally curated leadership literature, discussion-driven task-work and reflective tasks. Participants are also able to connect with one another 24/7 through the LMS enabling them to collaborate on individual tasks and discuss ‘top of mind’ issues.

Participants undertake a rigorous industry-standard Psychometric Assessment which provides meaningful insight into their personality, characteristics, values, strengths and derailers. They will develop an awareness of how the information from the psychometric testing can empower or enhance their leadership development.

Coaching sessions unpack the results of the Psychometric Assessment and offer detailed information regarding the characteristics, competencies, and values that underlie how each participant approaches their role and responsibilities.

The Transformative Leadership Initiative (TLI) is the co-constructed leading change initiative designed to have a positive impact in the participant’s organisation. It is a robust evidence-driven multi-phased process which provides participants the opportunity to customise leading change in their context. The TLI aligns with and expands on the participant’s global strategic thinking.
