Leadership Programme

The scale of ambition in Greater Manchester will require a shift in the behaviours and expectations of leaders. Leading GM is a collective effort to mobilise a community of leaders from across all sectors of GM. It is part of a programme of activities that will support GM leaders to achieve their Stronger Together ambition. Its success will be in the engagement of individuals, organisations, systems and places and the sharing of ideas, insights and practice.

To support Leading GM we are running a programme for leaders across GM. This is not a traditional leadership programme to build leadership skills but fundamentally about connecting with people, creating impactful relationships and innovating. It is about working in a different way to deliver the GM ambitions and support GM to thrive.

Hear from some of our delegates and guest speakers who attended the Reunion and Reflection event for the first Leadership Programme cohort on 25 April:


The Leading GM programme will take four groups of 100 leaders from across the GM system and focus their energies and talents on improving the lives of the people in GM.

Leadership Programme 4 phases

Our first cohort has now concluded their formal leadership programme, and the second cohort is in the middle of their six month programme. See the Blog for updates on programme events as they happen, with future events also available on the Upcoming Events page.
