Kinharvie to Facilitate 2nd Leadership Development Centre for Turning Point Scotland

By Paul Cummings, 26-Jul-2013

On 12th & 13th February 2013 Kinharvie Institute facilitated the first Gateway Development Centre for Turning Point Scotland.  This experience was the initial session in Turning Point Scotland’s Effective Strategic Leadership Development Programme. 

The Gateway Development Centre experience involved participants undertaking a series of group and individual tasks designed to elicit, assess and raise individual awareness of key leadership strengths as well as areas for development.  

Joint working with an independent organisation has added value to the programme according to Stewart Smith, head of Training and Development at Turning Point Scotland.  Participants have reported back that they really enjoyed the experience at Kinharvie and got a lot of value from the Kinharvie facilitator’s feedback.   This feedback supported and challenged them to think differently about themselves and how they managed their teams.

The first cohort of managers will be completing the development programme in August with a second cohort starting on the Programme in September.  Kinharvie Institute will, as before, be facilitating the first two days of the programme and we are very much looking forward to working with Turning Point Scotland again.
