Event description


Leeds Progress School

Providing high quality, self directed and self managed learning for anyone who is looking to make progress in or around Leeds.


There are two time slots, one during the day and one after work. Please pick the time slot which works best for you.

Sessions will be held monthly.

The first meeting will be on 23rd January. Subsequent meetings will be held every month. Most people come as much or as little as they want. It is certainly not a course where you have to attend every month! Although experienced Progress Schoolers say you get more from regular attendance...

February 20th: Click link to register Hyde Park Book Club

March 23rd: Click link to register Playlab Leeds in the St Johns Shopping Centre


The Swarthmore Centre near the LGI Clarenden Wing are our first host for 2020.


The focus of the sessions will be on building a powerful group, each member of whom is committed to their own development and to supporting the development of other group members. The emphasis will be on ‘learning’ rather than teaching and training – clarifying learning agendas and developing experiments that will help us to adopt new and more powerful behaviours in our pursuit of progress. The group will be using a structured, proven and tested framework developed by Richard Boyatzis and colleagues – called self directed leadership learning.


We want Progress School to be accessible and affordable to all – as we believe the more diverse the group, the more powerful the learning. So prices will start from FREE. However we will ask you to pay what feel you can afford. If you are able to make a donation then this will be taken online or by invoice if you prefer.

Progress school takes no funding from anyone – apart from its members. No public funding means we can stay fast, flexible and fun! It also means we can never be threatened by ‘funding’ being withdrawn. We will be beholden to no-one apart from other members of the School.

Who will be in Progress School?

Applications for Progress School will be welcomed from anyone. Members will be chosen to provide a diverse and interesting group. Commitment to the group will also be a factor. If you attend regularly you are more likely to get a place at future events.

Ability to pay will not be a defining issue. There will be a number of free places. However we do need to get to a point where we can cover our costs – so we are also hoping to find people prepared to donate what they can afford.

Our aim is to establish a cohort of perhaps 40 or so people who will share in supporting each others progress.

Commitment Required

To attend as regularly as you can, for as long as Progress School and its members remain useful to you. And to support the development of other Progress School members in any way that you can. That is it.


Then get your ticket now - and donate what you can afford. FREE IS FINE!
