Programme Overview

In an industry characterized by a combination of pre-existing conditions, strategic challenges ensuing from the current crisis, and the uncertainty of development for the foreseeable future, this calls for a response by individual airlines that not only focuses on the short-term changes ahead, but that also considers mid- and long-term disruptions.
Join us in #Barbados from 5th - 8th September 2023 as The Sagicor Cave Hill School of Business and Management along with the Barbados Aircraft and Aviation Services Company Ltd join forces to deliver a one of a kind programme designed to enable aviation executives within organisations across various sub-sectors throughout the aviation value chain to focus on key elements of leaders and to promote strategic growth and development within their organisations during these turbulent times.
Programme Goals

The goals of the programme are to:
  • Develop emerging leaders in the aviation industry as well as provide continued improvement for experienced industry veterans.
  • Enable aviation teams to build exceptional levels of strategic, high-performance, and self-aware leadership skills.
  • Empower delegates to confidently lead organisations in the face of the exponential disruptions in the aviation industry.

Learning Objectives

On successful completion of the course, delegates will be able to:
  • Develop an enhanced leadership self-awareness and a leadership philosophy.
  • Discuss the core concepts, principles and practices associated with strategy formulation, evaluation, and execution.
