About this Event

What is The BLC?

Accredited by the Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity, the Business Leadership Course - widely known as 'The BLC' - is HorizonSport’s flagship programme for senior leaders in the sport and physical activity sector. Over four weeks, a select cohort of ten leaders achieve breakthroughs in personal impact and effectiveness. They embed fresh ways of thinking and innovative techniques into their day-to-day business leadership.

What does my investment include?

  1. Workshop days – 09.00 - 16.45 on 4 Feb & 3 Mar 2020 in central London
  2. Evening sessions – 19.00 - 21.00 on 18 & 25 Feb 2020
  3. 1:1 executive coaching
  4. Networking breakfast and lunch will be provided on both workshop days
  5. Accountability forum

What will I learn?

Each module in the BLC curriculum includes very practical, action-oriented leadership theory, and participants apply new mindsets and techniques to current business issues:

  • Study techniques to create and sell a vision that aligns and inspires people, even in the face of uncertainty and cynicism. Build shared commitment and a sense of ownership.
  • Discover how to stay poised and present whatever happens, speak with credibility, and impact. Identify 'panic button moments' and how to stay in control.
  • Clear the clutter for effective, effortless and enjoyable business planning. Prioritise and de-prioritise. Master how to say no. Reduce frustration and procrastination.
  • Learn an efficient and highly structured process to solve problems and make decisions in senior teams and boards. Apply to a live business problem for immediate impact.
  • Build motivation and performance in teams – dysfunctional or storming! Explore the power of seeing feedback as a gift. Influence the behaviour of both difficult people and top performers.
  • Create a powerful senior network, by challenging and providing new perspectives, wisdom and guidance for each other in the cohort.
