Leadership Course

The Institute of Agricultural Management Leadership Development Course

The Institute of Agricultural Management (IAgrM) Leadership Course (LDC) is a three-week residential course and is held biennially.  The next course will be held in February, March and April 2020.  Please CLICK HERE for the latest information on the next course.

This course is aimed at the more experienced candidate who is already in a management role within their business and who has aspirations to challenge themselves in their development and in their career path.  Delegates are exposed to a complete self-assessment before exploring managing others and understanding how policy is developed and decisions are made.  Leadership styles are investigated throughout the three-week residential course which provides direction to delegates as to the type of leader they aspire to be.  The relationships forged between the delegates provides a life-long network of opportunities which is enhanced by the active alumni.

As in previous years, twelve delegates will spend time in Cirencester, Brussels and London when the two objectives of developing the individual and debating with policy makers will be undertaken.  

Research conducted with the alumni of the course has shown that the delegates gained the following from the course;

Networking; Career development; Camaraderie; Self-confidence; Ability to do more things; Happier; Encouraged to change; Access to Leaders; Improvement in thought processes; Raising profile; New management skills; People skills.

There are many leadership theories that try to define successful leadership and many of these such as trait, transformational, participatory, contingency and visionary are referred to during the programme.

The delegates will share their experiences and learn from each other.  This learning journey forges strong links between the delegates themselves as many course attendees stay in contact long after the conclusion of the course.
