Leadership Development Programme


Delivering organisational excellence through inspirational leadership

Our Leadership Development Programme focuses on three core elements:

 

Who I Am – explores personality types and differences using tools such as Myers-Briggs, Emotional Intelligence and Colourworks. We examine how delegates speak, listen and the impact this has on others. We encourage delegates to consider time management and their own self-development.

My Team – focuses on coaching and change management as key skills of an inspiring leader. We use Situational Leadership (Blanchard) to understand how leaders adapt their style to match the development needs of their team. We consider learning styles and how they impact training and facilitation.

What I Do – examines what leaders are expected to deliver both in terms of results, desired culture and ideal behaviours. We consider essential organisational processes and standards. We promote leader standard work to develop a sustainable culture of improvement.

“The leadership coaching activity enabled the management groups to develop their personal resilience when dealing with challenging situations and ‘historical, old groove’ conversations. Through the coaching programme, leaders and managers developed a greater sensitivity to the situations where defined conversations were necessary and consciously employed a greater skill in delivering these conversations.”
