Leadership is a challenging business from which an unending stream of complications crop up. The Timoney Leadership Institute Advanced Leadership Programme has been designed to train leaders to grow and develop as they learn how to rise to these challenges.
The ALP programme will achieve this through insights and discussions with world-class professors from Harvard Business School, the IESE Business School, (ranked number one in the world in 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 by the Financial Times for executive education) and several other leading business schools from across the world.
Mark continues to work on his own self-development and has been accepted onto a prestigious leadership and self-development programme at the Timoney Leadership Institute in Dublin. The Advanced Leadership Programme is delivered over a five month period and is designed to equip participants to better manage situations, create leaders and develop the entrepreneurial mindset. The Timoney Institute works in partnership with Harvard and IESE Business School, which was ranked number one in the world in 2018.
Our official Launch of our WellBeing Workshop with over 120 students in Co. Mayo. Mark Mc Cormack (Founder & Mentor) & Simon Ryan (Creative Arts & Mentor).
An inspirational group of young people we worked alongside. The aim of our “Wellbeing” workshops are to explore individuals and group understanding of the topic. Through peer support and teamwork individuals will learn inter-personal skills such as empathy and active listening enhance their communication, collaboration and creativity skills thus developing critical thinking for future leaders in school, community and employers.
Ms Walburg Ruane (Guidance Counsellor) was present at all of the workshops along with youth leaders who welcomed us each day.
