The Ashridge Business Accelerator

For mid-level managers who want a personalized leadership development journey while grasping the latest market trends, so they can move their organization forward in times of uncertainty.


This intensive program helps mid-level managers develop personal and team resilience to face times of uncertainty, plan actions strategically to produce results, manage ‘up’ to superiors, and ‘down’ to direct reports.

Participants will use a psychometric test to help determine the personalized journey they will undertake over the course of 5 days. Based on their development needs, their specialist mentor for the program will recommend the workshops they would benefit most from. These will be centred around 5 key themes; leadership, change, digital, strategy and innovation and include highly practical exercises and take-aways.

Participants will work with their specialist mentor on their Business Accelerator Strategic Project before presenting it back to their program peers and our faculty team. They return to work with the clarity, confidence and mindset to thrive during uncertain times and put their project into action.
