NextGen Leadership Programme at Darling Associates
NextGen Leadership comes with strategising, innovation and an understanding of client requirements along with personal development. It’s essential for business growth. At Darling Associates, input from the team and working collaboratively is what we do best.
We are delighted to share that we have embarked on an exciting comprehensive leadership programme for our Project Directors and Associates. They are learning the tools to enhance their skills of cross-team working practices, strengthen their business acumen and be able to identify further key initiatives to drive our architecture firm to the next level.
The programme also integrates their own personal development plans and gain a deeper understanding of their strengths so that they can subsequently pass on this knowledge to the wider team.
Melissa D’Souza, MCIPD, HR Director, says
“Investing in the Developing Leaders programme which has been tailor-made to our business, is all part of our structured plan for growth and securing the long-term success of our business. Our Senior Leadership Team are committed to mentoring and helping prepare our Project Directors and Associates as they progress to the next step in their careers.
As part of their course, the participants are encouraged to research their own particular areas of interest and explore ways to develop this to form part of our overall business strategy, with support from their mentor. Lots of exciting initiatives and ideas have been discussed, and I am proud of the commitment and enthusiasm shown by the current cohort and I can’t wait to see how their projects all develop over the next year”
