MISSION leaders embark on Executive Leaders Programme to promote mindful leadership


MISSION leaders convened at the Mount Somerset Hotel in Taunton in October to take part in a strategic leaders programme focused on bolstering critical thinking and mindful leadership within the Group.

Ten senior team members came together to participate in the two-day training course, which featured a variety of sessions including ‘EQI trait spotting’ and ‘leaders as coaches, gurus and mentors’.

Focusing on building a positive and collaborative culture, the sessions gave MISSION leaders the tools to continue building relationships that engage and empower staff to be more productive and efficient, while allowing them to share knowledge with like-minded peers within the Group.

Described as “an inspiring couple of days” by one participant, the course proved to be a great success, receiving a 4.4 feedback rating overall and 3,260 views on LinkedIn

Kate Cox, Bray Leino CEO and one of the course attendees, said: “Two days of highly effective (and enjoyable) individual and group learning; a perfect blend of theoretical and practical content, to drive more emotionally intelligent, coaching based leadership.

Importantly, it gave us time to take step away from the day to day and be truly self-reflective. Everyone on the course, gave their whole self - so we now have a new community of colleagues who trust each other, will openly share challenges and support each other, as together, we build an even better MISSION.”

Dan Burman, CEO of Chapter reported “The Exec Leaders Programme is a great example of why being a part of MISSION is so special. Bringing together entrepreneurial business leaders, helping develop their strategic and leadership skills through structured coaching and group activities, whilst also encouraging knowledge sharing and learning from within each of those businesses, was truly inspiring. We all left energised, stimulated and with all sorts of actionable learnings to take back to our businesses. Plus some strong new friendships from across MISSION to draw on.”

James Clifton, MISSION Group Chief Executive, summed up: “The MISSION Executive Leaders Programme is an example of our continued commitment to development within the Group. We strive to give our leaders all the resources and support they need to continue driving their Agencies forward, while ensuring that they are equipped to build the best possible environment for their employees to thrive in. Bringing like-minded leaders together is a key part of this development and will help in our drive for further collaboration across the Group.”
