What is the event?
You and five other lucky participants will be hosted by The Lovat, Loch Ness, Scotland and Judgement Index for a Leadership development day like no other. The day will begin with an in-depth analysis of your leadership capacity and values-based behaviours using the scientifically proven Judgement Index assessment. This will lead on to a cutting-edge leadership workshop designed to utilise the genius in you and raise awareness to specific barriers to performance you may have. The day will end with you learning how to develop strategies to take your leadership to the next level and create a high performing culture within your team back home.

But that’s not all – the day will be followed by a 5-course dining experience at the award-winning Station Road restaurant, where Sean Kelly will push the boundaries and your imagination with his truly remarkable men. Check out the Instagram @stationroadlochness to see what a treat will be in store for you.

Spend the night in your own room with views over the spectacular hills and enjoy a delicious breakfast before heading home to unleash your new skills on your team. Or why not enjoy a hike around Loch Ness first?

Please note – Event will begin in the afternoon on Monday 4th March to allow for travel and accommodation will be provided that evening. Anyone wishing to stay the evening before can book via The Lovat website for an additional charge. The event includes refreshments and lunch during the workshop, a 5 course meal, accommodation at The Lovat and transport to and from Inverness, but does not include any alcohol or other travel. As an example, there are flights from London Gatwick to Inverness flying out on Monday morning and returning Tuesday morning for £40 return.

What is the Judgement Index?
Judgement Index UK are a company who specialise in leadership development, working with organisations to build high performing teams with outstanding culture and values. They’ve spent many years developing best practices from a variety of environments including sport, military, academic and business and have worked with some incredible organisations including the Yale Institute of Excellence, the Mayo Clinic, Loughborough University, Lloyds of London, Holiday Inn, Sony; Siemens, UK Military, HSBC and Red Bull Extreme Athletes.

The Judgement Index assessment will be taken by the participants and used as part of the workshop and this offers a track record like no other assessment in the world for measuring capacity for good judgement. It’s got 45 years of research and Nobel Prize nomination behind it and will help the participants gain the deepest review possible of their own leadership capacity, potential for risk and how to focus on the fine margin action that will take them and their team from good to outstanding.

This is a truly unique opportunity for chefs looking to take their leadership to the next level, so whether you’re looking for that Michelin star or trying to build a team of superstars then don’t miss your chance to apply.
