Leadership development is a never ending story.

Our courses / learning programmes are a testbed to create momentum for new ways of working. We believe learning should be set in motion, not in stone.

Leadership is the key to future success, with humanity at its heart. We work with your leaders to develop the skills and confidence to approach complex change, the mindset to embrace it and the practice to embed it.

These are not standard leadership development courses. We focus on developing soft skills for hard business results, applying them in the real world, and building momentum to shift your organisational culture.

FAQs

How are your courses delivered?

Each course or leadership development programme is delivered flexibly, blending on- and off-line delivery. We have worked hard to deliver experiential and fun applied learning through online media during 2020, with great success. However we still prefer to get in front of people or take them off site. See case studies for more information.

I want a roll-out of quick courses to fill the training gap, can you do that?

We don’t offer a quick fix to difficult challenges such as leadership, relationships, collaboration and agility. Just as with driving, learning a new skill and applying it well in different circumstances takes time. Our leadership development courses will keep you moving on the never ending journey of developing self-awareness, mindset and emotional intelligence.

How do you embed the learning?

We believe that whilst learning through teaching has its place, learning through experience then applying that learning in the real world through practise is even better. Our leadership development programmes embed learning into the longer term through peer support groups, coaching and facilitation, combined with senior level ownership, combines to embed real changes in people’s ways of working.

How do you measure impact?

We use a range of qualitative and quantitative measures to assess impact of the learning. As with most soft skills though, it’s not always easy to measure direct course impact. We ask people to self assess against a range of measures, use culture surveys and existing organisational KPIs depending on the course. People report areas in free text response such as an increase in taking on of new responsibilities, career development, confidence and wellbeing.

Sometimes though, we see the opposite of what you might expect. For example an increase in psychological safety might see an increase in reporting of near misses for example, as people feel more able to speak up.
