More about this training


Why is leadership development important?

Research shows that an organisation’s “climate” is a reflection of the style of its leadership. In turn, that climate strongly influences the organisation’s performance.

Often overlooked in favour of more practical management skills, refining your leadership style is an essential part of improving your organisation’s climate. The ability to use emotional intelligence and adapt your approach to different situations and team members will pay dividends. You will achieve improved engagement and performance, both for yourself and your team.

Beyond this, specific skills and techniques will enhance your leadership capabilities on a more practical level. This might include:

  • Strategic thinking
  • Performance conversations
  • Coaching
  • Managing remote or hybrid teams
  • Decision making
  • Fostering positive engagement
  • Management communications

Who is this for?

Our development programmes can be tailored to the needs of established senior leaders, new managers or to prepare other members of your team for future managerial roles.

What is included?

Our training is developed to specifically serve your organisation’s situation and objectives. We will carry out thorough research and needs analysis to ensure that we deliver the right solutions for your business.

By way of illustration, a typical leadership development programme might include:

  • Preparatory work to consider the status quo and gather feedback from team members.
  • Review of different leadership styles and their effects on the organisation’s performance.
  • Individual personality assessments, for example using Insights Discovery or MBTI.
  • Correlation of the assessment outcomes with your preferred leadership styles and identification of personal development plans and opportunities.
  • Evaluation of specific leadership skills and techniques, reflecting on how each participant might benefit from adopting them.
  • Opportunity to practice the skills, for example through theatre-based training.
  • Creation of a personal plan of action with each participant, detailing how their newly acquired insights and skills will be applied in the workplace.
  • Individual or group coaching approaches (Learning Sets) to further boost their development.
  • Agreement to a development review a number of months after the training, to reflect on changes in approach and what still needs to be done.

We can also incorporate elements of our effective communication training. And we offer one to one executive coaching to support more personal leadership style development.

Example training outlines:

If required, your training programmes can be developed for accreditation by ILM, providing trainees with a professional qualification.
