The curriculum and learning outcomes have been provided by the Club Managers Association of Europe and this training course is endorsed by the Club Managers Association of America as part of the educational pathway to the Certified Club Manager (CCM) qualification.

MDP 3 Strategy and Leadership is aimed at those managers who wish to learn how to enhance their management style and tap into their leadership potential in order to operate the club as a business.

Delegates will understand the responsibilities and characteristics required to exert the appropriate levels of power and influence so that their club can develop its creativity while focusing its strategic aims in line with its established culture and traditions.

Particular attention will be paid to establishing and enhancing an effective working relationship with the Committee, whilst mentoring, developing and leading the staff team. Delegates will also be invited to review their knowledge in all competency areas required to achieve success at their club and in their career.

One key component included within the week’s learning is the Lumina Traits and Leadership Assessment. “Lumina Learning” maintains a global network of practitioners who specialise in helping individuals to identify areas of underlying strengths, and make personal development plans to improve their performance and relationships in and out of the workplace. Club Managers across the globe have evaluated the Lumina Portrait as one of the most illuminating sessions within the MDP curriculum.
