Teaming up with the Institute for Leadership & Management, No Guru offer the opportunity for first and middle line managers to gain ILM Level 3 and Level 5 qualifications in Leadership & Management and Levels 3 through to Level 7 Coaching & Mentoring, which are gained through evidence and application to the learner’s specific role and industry.

Alongside a recognised qualification, the programme encourages commitment and engages the individual with self-development and valuable leaderships skills. Previous learners have provided positive feedback on increased productivity and reduced conflict in the workplace.

No Guru Managing Director, John Drysdale said: “These qualifications are very flexible and we can help you choose units of learning that are most relevant to your organisation or sector. With ILM  you can almost design your own qualification for in-house programmes or send learners to our highly acclaimed ‘Open Programmes’ which we run regularly through the year.

Our aim is always to engage learners, so rather than teach we involve them in experiential learning activities, group discussions and self-guided study.  Many of our learners have never completed a formal qualification, which is why we offer all the support and guidance they need.”

More than 70,000 people register for an ILM qualification every year and with a clear focus on helping employers and training providers to develop, assess and accredit leaders with the right blend of skills, ILM is the UK’s top leadership and management qualifications specialist.

No Guru have a proven track record of delivering successful ILM training programmes to a wide range of UK organisations, spanning multiple industries. Having worked previously with Riverside Housing, Leeds Beckett University, Glendale Services and NHS Trusts to deliver ILM courses, No Guru are now offering their expertise to businesses across the city region.

John continued: “We are delighted with the response to our Autumn Coaching & Mentoring programme which was quickly, fully subscribed and we look forward to offering a rolling programme of events from early 2018.  We are leading in learning and aim to be recognised as the go-to hub for ILM activity in the region.”

Let’s be kinder to each other in 2017

There is a striking memorial in a park in Indianapolis.  It marks the spot where in April 1968, Robert Kennedy told a waiting crowd that Martin Luther King had been shot and killed, before speaking from the heart and his own personal experience, that violence is never an answer to our grievances.  His calming words quelled the rioting that other cities endured in the days after Dr King’s death and, arguably, saved some lives that night.

 

The memorial itself is an arresting work of art.  (more…)
