Learning set in motion, not in stone.
Whether it is classic leadership development, developing people through change, soft skills development, team learning or looking to the future with sustainable leadership, our courses / learning programmes are a testbed to create momentum for new ways of working.
Your leaders hold the key to future success, they need technical, strategic and interpersonal skills to deliver the future, and the ability to apply these in different ways for different circumstances. We’ll help people 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.

Below are examples of course templates that we might choose to use, or not for your leaders. Each is designed to support leadership development in different ways including psychological safety, intrapreneurship, agility, innovation, and collaboration. We aim to create courses that are testbeds of learning, which adapt and change to your circumstances and your people. You can find out more about our approach here. We love the custom needs of each of our clients. Let’s talk.
Developing the skills for relationship building and psychological safety in teams and organisations to improve performance, safety, engagement and innovation.
Developing how people think, act and lead for confidence and resilience during change, so they can be more agile, innovative and strategic in approach.
Developing sustainable leadership skills for the future of industry to deliver value and impact on the triple bottom line (AKA What I wish I’d known at 30).
Learning through doing; develop your people and solve a problem. You assemble a project team and problem, we’ll help them deliver and develop.

Harrison Network took the time to truly understand what we needed and reshaped the programme to meet the changing needs of our organisation. Highly recommended.
Working with Harrison Network to develop a challenging idea through to design and delivery has been excellent.
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.
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.
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 (70:20:10) Our leadership development programmes embed learning into the longer term through peer support groups, coaching and facilitation, combined with project delivering, senior level ownership, to embed real changes in people’s ways of working and immediate impact into your business.
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.
