What does it deliver?

At Ivy House we believe that to become an extraordinary leader you must first know yourself deeply and take 100% ownership for who you are, the life you lead and the impact you have. For this reason, our programmes begin with the individual, then focus on how to become an extraordinary leader – because you can’t lead others until you can lead yourself.

FAQs

Are places limited?
Yes. Our performance coaches work with people who are leaders in their field – business leaders, athletes, musicians, artists, designers – so their time is valuable and scarce.
How do I choose the best delegates to attend?
The Ivy House team will work with you through every step of the process to help you select the people who will most benefit from The Programme experience.
Can delegates mix and match the dates?
No. The programme is designed so that delegates work with the same team members throughout. It is important they pick a programme in which they can attend all the dates.
What if delegates need to change the programme they are booked on?
We will do our best to help, but this will be solely dependent on spaces being available on other dates. This needs to be done 3 weeks prior to the start of the programme.
Is there work to do beforehand?
Before each Masterclass, delegates will be asked to complete some pre-work. A process of discovery, it requires both thoughtful reflection and questioning other people who know them well. Our delegates tell us it feels much more like fun than work.
What is a performance coach?
Our delegates’ relationship with a coach is like no other relationship they will ever have. The sole purpose of their coach is to help them achieve exactly what they want in life. They will listen intently, support sensitively and challenge robustly. They will not tell delegates want they want to hear but what they need to hear, and they will do it in a way that works. Throughout the programme, the coaches work with all delegates both individually and in small groups. For the individual sessions they will meet, usually virtually, to address whatever it is the delegate wants to focus on at that time.
Do you have advice for individuals applying for The Ivy House Programme?
Spend some time thinking about what you want from the programme and what you are prepared to put in… then simply be yourself. If you have a particular time that you want to do the programme, get your application form in early. If we think you are ready, we will then schedule a deeper conversation. We want to be sure that the programme is right for you right now, and we want you to be confident in your decision as well.
Are scholarships available & can my organisation contribute?
We believe that access to cutting-edge training programmes should not depend on people’s ability to pay. We have set up our scholarship fund to ensure that exceptional individuals from every background can attend our programmes. Our particular focus is currently on people from education, social impact organisations and the arts. If you would like to apply for a scholarship or would like to contribute to the scholarship fund, we would be delighted to hear from you. Get in touch.
