ILM Level 7 Diploma in Strategic Leadership



The Diploma builds and broadens the skills and knowledge gained in the Award (please note candidates may join the Certificate directly and are not required to undertake the Award as a prerequisite). In the second mandatory unit at this level, ‘Developing the executive manager’, participants collect and analyse feedback on their personal management practice and effectiveness. This information is then evaluated against significant management theories/models and schools/trends in management thinking. Finally, participants identify strengths in their own management practice and prepare an action plan to address areas for improvement.
