Unlocking Your Leadership Growth Potential | Escentia Empowering Leaders

At Escentia, we believe that great leadership only happens by design.

Unlocking Your Leadership Growth Potential is our unique new, 8-month leadership development programme, which is designed for a small group of talented senior leaders who are seeking a leadership journey with a lasting impact. The programme has been accredited by the Institute of Leadership (IoL), which means that all delegates become a fellow of the IoL and will have access to all IoL materials and online offers after finishing the programme.

The annual programme has been developed by former senior VP at Pfizer, Paula Tully, whose intention and passion is to bring everything that she’d wished somebody had taught her, when on her own leadership journey.

This group journey is delivered by an incredible multi-disciplinary panel of highly experienced Executive coaches and highly regarded guest speakers. The programme is also designed to take classroom learnings to the outdoors, so individuals can experience leadership in a different way, and through practical application.

To enable deep reflection and to highlight areas for further growth, all delegates will also complete the Escentia 6C Assessment at the start and end of the programme. This is a 360 development-oriented, quantitative and qualitative assessment, which measures leaders against our 6 critical ingredients for success: clarity, courage, congruence, connection, coherence and compassion.


2024 Programme Structure

The 2024 Programme will be delivered in 3 in-person modules (May, October and November) and with 2 virtual sessions in April, to kick start the journey, connect and orientate the group.

There are also four 1:1 coaching calls throughout the journey, with Executive coaches who have a wide range of expertise across leadership, business and resilience.
