Senior Management Team Network

CO3 Logo

As part of CO3’s commitment to succession planning, CO3 is facilitating an action learning network for members of Senior Management Teams (SMT). Last year we ran a pilot SMT group when CO3 brought together a group of senior managers together with an expert facilitator, Roger Courtney, to manage the sessions.  The pilot programme was extremely successful as testified by some of the feedback we received:

  • Having an open conversation & gleaning info that I can follow up with further networking opportunity.
  • Great networking & making links with other senior managers
  • The support information and advice through the group has been invaluable

To be eligible to participate in the SMT Network you must be a member of your organisation’s SMT and report directly to your Chief Officer. If you fit these criteria then we would be delighted if you would like to participate. The action learning group will consist of a total of 4 monthly sessions held September – December 2011.

The first session will have the following aims:

  • Begin to form a peer network at SMT level with a view to sharing support, experience, issues and best practice
  • Agree a 4 session lunchtime seminar programme – content of which would be agreed by group at initial meeting

We are keen to begin the learning and skills exchange as quickly as we can and so we would like participating senior managers to make a suggestion for the content of the first meeting. Are you dealing with a complex issue at present that, under Chatham House rules, you would be willing to share with the group and the facilitator and the group would work together to suggest possible ways forward? If so, perhaps you could contact CO3 with your suggestion. For the first meeting we will select an issue that we feel could have a strong learning and development outcome for the members of the group and set the agenda accordingly.

Date of first meeting: Tues 6th September 2011
Time: 12.30 – 2.30pm (lunch included)
Venue: 34 Shaftesbury Square, Belfast
Cost for 4 sessions (incl. lunch): £100 for CO3 Associate Members or £160 for Non–members.*
*This price includes CO3 Associate membership for the year.

If you would like to participate on this action learning group, please confirm your attendance with jacqueline@co3.bz

Three further dates have been set for 11th October 2011, 15th November 2011, and 13th December 2011 at the same time 12.30pm - 2.30pm, so please add them to your diary!

N.B. Experience has shown us that the group works best if the same people attend and so we would ask all participants to commit to all 4 dates. Places will be limited to the first 15.
