About the Course
Relief International, in partnership with Leadership for Humanitarians, provides this training through the UK Aid funded global Talent Development Project. The overall goal of Talent Development is to support ‘localised’ humanitarian leadership and provide capacity building to current local staff, including leaders, in the humanitarian sector.
The Leadership for Humanitarians Signature Programme is intended for humanitarian leaders who want to become change masters within their organisation. This 3-month programme combines self-leadership with group leadership and provides you with the framework to be a leader of leaders. At the end of the programme, you will have everything you need to be able to sustain high performance, in both yourself and your team. You will leave with a deeper understanding of yourself, an appreciation of the role that others play in achieving your goals, and the ability to effectively match your needs with theirs. Discover how to inspire trust. Learn how to communicate a clear and compelling purpose. Understand how to align systems. And gain the secret to unleashing talent in your team.
The Leadership for Humanitarians Signature Programme is aiming to transform the way you work.

-Two 360 degree assessments
-A face-to-face 5-day workshop in Dhaka, Bangladesh
-Two webinars with your workshop facilitators

Participants are expected to be actively supported by their organisation and line manager throughout the programme and will take ownership of their learning process.
