Course attended: In house – CMI Level 5 Leadership and Management programme
Finance manager, Punneet Grewal recently attended our CMI Level 5 Leadership and Management programme as part of Glennmont Partners in-house training programme.
In order to deliver this in house training, we worked closely with Glennmont Partners to design and adapt our CMI Level 5 Leadership and Management programme to meet their unique specifications. The programme was designed to educate managers about their roles as leaders, developing leadership skills that are crucial to their roles and building an understanding of what it takes to be a successful leader.
Read what Punneet had to say about her time on the programme…
Glennmont Partners is one of Europe’s largest fund managers focusing exclusively on investment in clean energy infrastructure. Raising long-term capital to invest in alternative power generation projects, such as wind farms, biomass power stations, solar parks and small-scale hydro power plants.
I recently attended the CMI Level 5 Leadership and Management programme and I found my time on the course to be really insightful and engaging. Attending the course has provided me with lots of new insights, knowledge and confidence that will help take my career to the next level.
James, the tutor, was highly engaging and extremely knowledgeable. He delivered an interesting course very well, despite the constraints of having to be delivered online over zoom and was very attentive to the needs of the class.
I particularly enjoyed learning about the psychology of leadership, key theories behind successful leadership and how to effectively coach in the workplace. It’s hugely beneficial that the learnings from the course can also be applied in non-professional situations and it was highly thought-provoking learning about the various theories, and how they can be practically applied in real life situations.
How has your training benefited you so far?
So that I can gain the most from my time on the leadership programme, I’m going to take time out to understand and assess the different personalities that I come into contact with on a day to day basis (as per the DISC model). From this analysis, I can then tailor my approach to leadership and resonate more with the different personality types, this will hugely facilitate with achieving the best possible outcomes. I also plan to take my new found skills and knowledge forward to support my on my journey to becoming a more authentic leader and encourage me to stay true to my beliefs and values.
The learning certainly addressed the initial objectives set out by the company. I welcomed the opportunity to attend the programme and for me it has been useful to stop and take a step back to understand how and why people, including myself behave a certain way and what to do to maximise the level of cooperation and success in an organisation. It has also given me the confidence to accept that I am also a leader.
A really insightful and engaging course, delivered by a highly knowledgeable tutor. This course will help me to take my career to the next level as it provides an in depth understanding of the psychology of leadership and what it means to be a good leader while providing practical ways to immediately start applying the theory in your day to day. Finally, the learnings from the course can also be applied in a non-professional setting which is a bonus!
