Leadership Development Programme
Our Leadership Development Programme focuses on three core elements:
Who I Am – within this element of the programme we carry out a series of training workshops, one to ones, psychometric tests and group sessions. We create individual self awareness, an understanding of personal motivation and improve skills around speaking and listening. Development plans are created and coaching time is agreed, enabling individuals to fulfill their potential as a leader.
My Team – within this element of the programme we carry out a series of training workshops and group sessions to help leaders understand how to manage their teams. We look at group learning styles, development needs, leadership and support approaches. Further work is completed on how to communicate, train, coach and mentor. The learning and improvement opportunities identified during these sessions are added to the individual coaching and development plan.
What I Do – within this element of the programme we start to look at what work needs to completed, We run a series of training workshops around managing customers, creating improvement systems, maintaining standards, developing behaviours. Individuals gain an understanding of the essential elements required to create effective leadership. The learning and improvement opportunities identified during these sessions are added to the individual coaching and development plan.

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.”
