DLiPTM is a four-month development programme. Through workshops, case studies, peer learning, self-reflection, personal assessments, and one-on-one coaching, participants will learn the essential skills, capabilities and behaviours required to be a commercially confident partner in the digital age. The development programme structure allows participants the time and space to focus, reflect, and practise while they perform their daily duties.
DLiPTM gives delegates the unique opportunity to be coached by an experienced practice leader. Our coaches have been selected for their extensive experience, leadership capability and commitment to people development.
- Duration: Four months
- Location: The development programme takes place in person at Chartered Accountants’ Hall, London
- Start date: DLiP™ Autumn - 7 September
Participants are typically less than 18 months into their first partner role or are one or two career stages away.
MBTI (Myers-Briggs Personality Type Indicator)
Participants will complete the MBTI assessment and gain deep, constructive insight into themselves: how they take in information; make decisions; adapt their behaviour in different environments - and how they can use the results to maximise performance.
DLiP™ workshops simulate the core challenges Partner’s face – enabling participants to prepare and practise in a consequence free environment.
There are four workshops:
- Ready for partnership
- You, as a leader
- In service to clients
- A sustainable future
- Ready for partnership
Participants form their 180-day plan before starting the development programme and continuously add new elements during the programme. The plan aims to identify specific activities, behaviours and priorities participants want to address during the programme. After the development programme is complete participants will then present their 180-day plan to their sponsors.
Learning from peers
Throughout the programme, participants will share the challenges they are experiencing with developing leadership skills in a confidential, supportive environment with peers. Peers provide participants with insightful, objective viewpoints that will allow them to tackle the problem from a different perspective.
Personal one to one guidance from a professional coach
Throughout the development programme participants will have four one-hour sessions, booked around their schedule with an experienced coach.
Coaches are there to impart their invaluable wisdom and help participants navigate current and future work challenges.
