Executive Leadership Programme

The GELI Executive Leadership Programme is a 12-month learning journey, with a focus on personal leadership, leadership in teams, and leading into the future. The programme includes three, five-day residencies complemented by virtual learning and executive coaching opportunities between each residency. The content is centred on specific leadership topics, identified through extensive consultations and informed by emerging research applicable to the humanitarian/development sector and beyond. Cross-cutting themes are introduced and carried across the interactive and experiential curriculum, such as contextual intelligence, systems leadership, and responsible negotiation. The course is grounded in the principle that learning must be practical and applicable to real-life operational complexities.
