Who is the programme for?

This is designed for senior college office bearers and has attracted many future college presidents.

Programme objectives

• To support senior college and faculty office-bearers to develop their leadership skills to lead and transform their organisations in an increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) environment.
• To create a community of college and faculty leaders able to establish a supportive environment that will lead to stronger relationships and support collaboration between colleges.
• To enable dialogue with politicians and senior leaders in national bodies of strategic importance to colleges and faculties.

The FMLM approach includes:

• a process of focused support and high challenge with rich content delivered in a face-to-face format.
• research evidence, theory, pertinent leadership models and diagnostics.
• dealing with real issues in context and exposure to different perspectives.

Professor Dame Carrie MacEwen, Chair of Council, GMC
