Core Capabilities

Together with Mindful Manager and Leading Mindfully, this module forms part of the central general management core of your MBA programme. The Core Capabilities module is designed to help you to develop the skills that are vital for effective managing and leading. We focus on three things: your cognitive conduct (your ability to think critically, creatively and to consider a problem holistically), your collaborative conduct (your capacity to engage in productive dialogue and work in teams) and, most crucially, your reflectivity (reflection on one’s experiences in order to improve performance). The module provides an intense experiential learning process and continues throughout the year. Across the year, you’ll be exposed to specialist coaches and training experts in areas from creative thinking to rhetorical skills, including Charlie Atkinson, CEO of Human Factors, and our training partners Corporate Learning Solutions and Career Keystones..
