GMBA Personal leadership journey

Maximise your leadership potential

The Personal Leadership Journey is a structured approach to cultivating and enhancing leadership potential.

You will be supported to better harness your strengths as an individual, team member or leader, and take concrete action to address areas that could benefit from professional development, resulting in truer self-direction, and an enhanced ability to lead others and organisations.

Through the Personal Leadership Journey, you will network with alumni and fellow students in the sectors that most interest you. You will learn how to develop and market your personal brand and optimize your promotion and employment prospects.

Working together with a dedicated careers coach to cover any career-related issue, from helping you define your career strategy, self-awareness activities and mock interview practice, to negotiating offers and your current salary. Your coach can also help you develop solutions for any leadership or personal development issues you may have. You may also choose to work with your coach on more self-reflection and self-awareness activity.

The Personal Leadership Journey emphasises three main and interconnected elements


Supported by an expert careers coach, you will undertake psychometric assessments and reflective exercises designed to pinpoint your strengths and highlight areas for professional development, both as a leader and in terms of your wider professional effectiveness.

Professional development

With your careers coach, you will create and execute a plan for your personal development based on the feedback you receive from your reflective exercises. Once you identify areas for development, you will be able to utilise online Career workshops and resources to build your development skills.

Leadership development

The Personal Leadership Journey will help you accelerate your career. Depending on your ambition, you will be given structured support to transition to a new role or sector, nurture your entrepreneurial ambitions or take the next big step in your career trajectory. We will help you to achieve your career, personal and leadership objectives for the duration of your MBA and beyond

"The Personal Leadership Journey has given me an insight into my current strengths and weaknesses, and areas of my personal development to focus on.
