Programme description

The aim of this programme is for participants to integrate the leadership model that the Air Force wants to implement; in other words, at the end of the programme, in addition to learning and sharing the proposed leadership model, they will have put it into practice and integrated it into their daily lives, being the best example of what this model wants to develop. The programme is structured in 5 modules of 2 days each, with 2 weeks between modules, in order to keep the participants focused on the practice and integration of the model.

Programme structure

In this module, in addition to setting the context of the programme, we will work from Emotional Intelligence, identifying what kind of leader I am at the moment and what kind of leader I would like to be, integrating the proposed model; what helps me and what hinders me in this process; and we will lay the foundations for the work to be carried out throughout the programme for the integration of the leadership model.

This module is based on relational intelligence as the basis for the generation of relationships and the impact this has on leadership. We will work on the different factors that facilitate or hinder the generation of relationships such as listening, awareness, empathy, influence and impact.

This module works from Collaborative Intelligence and how the leader creates from the whole and with everyone, generating vision, defining strategy, making decisions, fostering creativity and intuition, detecting and activating talent in the organisation.

This module will put into practice the knowledge learned through an outdoor experience where participants will be able to identify and improve their leadership skills in real situations.

This module is the closing of the shared experience and learning. We will close the process on two levels: a personal level, becoming aware of the change made and the impact that can be achieved when leading from the awareness and integration of the model; and the second will be a team level, through an experience that allows us to share the learning, making the participants the best ambassadors of the Air Force leadership model.
