Leadership development

Bespoke programmes designed to support your business strategy.

Do you have the leadership skills in-house to deliver on your business strategy? Are you doing enough to support the development of your leaders? Having effective leaders at all levels is something that sets apart the best organisations from the rest. But this doesn’t just happen on its own – you need the right leadership development strategy and we can help. After first gaining a good understanding of your business context and particular leadership challenges, we create tailored programmes to fit the specific development needs of your leaders. Our experienced team can design, deliver and evaluate a wide range of interventions to help your leaders raise their game.

Tackling your leadership challenges

Your leaders are facing an increasing number of challenges arising from a rapidly-evolving workplace. Identifying and successfully addressing your leaders’ top development priorities will have a huge bearing on your bottom line, resulting in as much as a 23 percent increase in organisational performance. Here are some of the leadership development challenges we are most frequently being asked for support with:

  • Identifying and developing future leaders
  • Preparing for leadership transitions
  • Giving feedback effectively
  • Building resilience, confidence or emotional intelligence
  • Developing influencing skills
  • Having development conversations.

We recognise that today’s leaders are facing all manner of challenges in an ever-changing workplace, and that leadership development priorities will differ from one organisation to the next. That’s why our approach reflects this fluidity and flexibility, with programmes designed around your leaders’ specific needs.

Our solutions for different leaders

Differing leadership challenges, organisational cultures and contexts mean that a one-size-fits-all approach has major drawbacks. Instead we work with you in a flexible way making recommendations about the best delivery, content, methods, techniques or tools depending on the level and priorities for your leaders. Our experience has seen us devise programmes for executives and senior leadership right through to first line managers and emerging leader populations. We’ve outlined below just some of the delivery options, tools and techniques we offer:

  • 1:1 executive coaching
  • Top-team development
  • Actor simulations including real play and forum theatre
  • 360 degree feedback / psychometric evaluations
  • Workshops
  • Development centres / leadership clinics
  • Action learning sets
  • Workplace shadowing
