Insight guide #1: What can coaching do for you?
We understand in your career, you may have already ‘been there, done that.’ This supports our belief that the most meaningful insights come from learning by doing. We organise our teaching around real-world dilemmas and business choices.
Those who work while studying for their Henley Executive MBA (EMBA) are able to give significant value back to their employers. The knowledge and skills you develop from our highly practical programme can be applied immediately in the workplace. Assessed assignments can be based on current issues, creating a valuable contribution to your organisation.
The Henley EMBA provides tangible, significant and enduring skills, knowledge and connections.
Henley prides itself on its reputation for being inclusive, friendly and supportive. Deliberately small class sizes ensure individual attention and highly interactive sessions. Henley puts the emphasis on collaboration rather than competition. The Henley EMBA is highly participative – we value both individual contributions and team-based learning. Programme members come from a range of different sectors, with diverse skills and cultural orientations, which inevitably creates challenges for teams along the way.
We coach you on teamwork, management processes, influencing skills, project management, facilitation and conflict resolution – all vital skills for you to take back to your own place of work.
At Henley, we recognise that one of your key objectives is to develop yourself as an individual. We work with your strengths to develop and hone management skills and prepare for the challenges of senior leadership. We see personal development as the backbone of our programme, not as a module to be studied separately.
During your studies, you will be coached and supported by our Personal Tutors. They work closely with you to support you in every aspect of your learning and personal development efforts, and help you progress through the programme.
Our programme combines the best in academic theory with practical, real-life projects. This means that as well as having an outstanding learning experience, you will be able to immediately apply the developed knowledge and skills when you are back in the workplace.
