Leadership development

We achieve our mission through highly skilled and decisive leadership; we achieve that by attracting the best talent, then investing heavily in learning & development. When you join the leadership team of your hotel you will attend progressive training courses, some of which are detailed below.


Lead is our supervisor development programme for our team members that are new to leadership. Lead consists of nine classroom days spread over one year with structured activities to complete in between. Lead gives new leaders the skills and confidence to delight our guests and successfully lead their teams in line with Dorchester Collection mission and values.


Expand is our development experience for heads of department and high potential managers. It is a holistic and memorable three days where managers discover themselves and how they can positively impact their teams and business performance.


When you become an executive with Dorchester Collection you can look forward to attending an innovative development and reflection week, where our senior executives receive 360 feedback and personality profiles in order to discover more about who they are as a leader and to provide inspirational leadership to their teams.

At the forefront of our learning programmes is our mission, vision and values. This ensures all time spent learning is valuable to yourself and our business and has a measurable return on investment.
