The Insurance Institute of South Africa (IISA) has partnered with the Insurance Sector Education and Training Authority (INSETA) to host an executive management development programme. The programme will be delivered by the African Leadership University (ALU) and it is designed for senior managers as well as executive managers in the insurance industry.

This programme is aimed at nurturing and elevating business and leadership skills. It will also assist managers in keeping abreast of developing technologies and business strategies. Through this programme the IISA and INSETA aim to create a pool of skilled executive managers thereby assisting the industry in mitigating the risk of shortage of skills at executive management level.

Through the AL Group’s research-based, leadership transformation model, the programme is uniquely designed to transform managers into high impact leaders.


The six–month programme focuses on four leadership competencies:
