Leadership Development Programme

“Delta 21 identified GAC’s need to ensure it is structurally and operationally fit to meet the challenges of the 21st century. The Leadership Development Programme provides GAC managers and future leaders with powerful tools for improving performance in the real world. The course has previously been run solely in the MEA. Following the success of the course in this region and to help GAC reach the targets of Delta 21, it’s now time to roll it out on a global level to give all leaders the opportunity to achieve the strategic edge that is required in today’s world.”

Bengt Ekstrand
Group President

“The LDP is an ambitious course. The challenging nature of its three levels have resulted in great accomplishments for leaders across the regions. GAC will need to withstand challenges in this rapidly changing world. We require our leaders to steer us through with streamlined ease, with the ability to think of sometimes unorthodox solutions, to collaborate with our business partners and have an utmost awareness of every company in the business, not just the one we each sit inside. By making LDP accessible globally it will help serve GAC’s execution of Delta 21.”

Group Vice President, Human Resources

The Leadership Development Programme (LDP) provides GAC managers and future leaders with powerful tools for improving performance in the real world.   The LDP aims to build a strong leadership and performance culture in line with the GAC Group’s Delta 21 strategy. The programme comprises three levels, based on the universal competencies of a high performing GAC manager:

  1. Managing the GAC way
  2. Business strategy
  3. Commercial acumen
  4. Financial acumen
  5. Effective communication
  6. Managing high performance teams
  7. Managing individual performance

The LDP is aimed at all current and aspiring management level personnel.  Entry into Level 1 will be by invitation based on Company Manager recommendation, and approval by their Group Vice President Region (GVPR).  Participants who successfully complete Foundations of Leadership Performance (Level 1) will be invited to participate in Leading High Performance Teams (Level 2).  Successful completion of these pre-requisites will permit eligibility to undertake the advanced stage Performance Driven Leadership (Level 3) which is the capstone of the LDP.

The LDP is designed to have a degree of rigour commensurate with the leadership responsibilities of a high performing GAC Manager. Participants accepted into the LDP who demonstrate the necessary competence will be invited to participate in successive levels of the programme based on course performance outcomes.
