Cultural Relations Leadership

Having worked for many years in partnership with British Council, to design and deliver high impact programmes of leadership and change, MiDDLEGROUND is bringing its unique approach to leadership inside the British Council through the Cultural Relations Leadership programme (CRL). It forms one of three key leadership programmes for top level leaders in the Council and is focused on country directors and heads of functions.

CRL supports participants moving into upper levels of leadership in British Council, to understand and adjust to what it means to be working in a cultural relations way. The distinctive focus of CRL is ‘Cultural Relations’ plus ‘Leadership’, and it is rooted in the practice of participants’ real work, supported by theory. It is a ‘workshop journey’ in which participants actively take their next steps in Cultural Relations and in Leadership, under the guidance of the facilitator team. The programme starts with pre-work, and brings in internal and external voices.

The programme has been run with global leaders as well as specifically for leaders in the EU region.

Strategic Leader’s Programme in partnership with the British Council

Strategic Leaders’ Programme (SLP) is a unique and highly innovative programme. It offers established leaders from the public, private and voluntary sectors who are at or near the CEO level, an opportunity to transform what they and their organisations do for the betterment of society and the world.

The MiDDLEGROUND Leadership team, in partnership with the British Council, were key to the design and delivery of this programme. It uses transformational leadership theory and experiential learning techniques to enable cross-cultural conversations, mutual learning and the application of theory into practice. MiDDLEGROUND delivered the programme in Africa, Asia, Mexico and Europe. Through its engagement with the SLP and earlier programmes in this series, MiDDLEGROUND Leadership has access to a network of leaders from around the world committed to meeting today’s global challenges.
