Leadership is key to team and organisational success
People want to be led by an authentic person who understands their wider purpose and can adapt to different challenges and people. Self-awareness is the start to lead effectively in our ever-changing and complex world.
Work with us to unlock your leadership potential and revitalise your leadership performance.
We keep up-to-date with emerging leadership ideas and practices. We take a holistic approach to developing and strengthening individual leaders and organisation-wide leadership.

Customised leadership programmes
Our leadership programmes are customised to you and your organisational context. We talk your language and work with your challenges, whether it is strategy and innovation, team building, communication, or managing performance (yours and others). And we accept that these challenges don’t stay neatly in boxes.
Strategy and innovation
Thinking and planning strategically
Thinking creatively and innovating
Get focused, get organised, get results
Improving customer service
Developing emotional & social Intelligence
Leading diverse and inclusive teams
Conversations that matter
Building & maintaining relationships
Persuading & influencing others
Coaching your people
Managing difficult behaviour
As well tailoring the content of the programme to suit you, we tailor the delivery. As well as workshops and coaching, we offer other delivery tools we’ve found effective for leadership programmes:
Women's leadership development
Sticky floors, labyrinths, concrete ceilings, the double bind and bias are just some of the reasons women struggle to reach leadership positions.
Work with us to unravel the complex interplay of systems, attitudes and behaviours that create challenges for women leaders. Then work with us to develop leadership strategies for women and allow them to set their own agendas.
The key to leadership development in your organisation may come from another of our areas of expertise.
Business agility - our approach to agile can help leaders thrive in complex environments
Strengths - the CliftonStrengths model shows you how to develop your talents into leadership strengths
Diversity and inclusion - leaders who embrace diversity and foster inclusion get better results
Change - every leader has to manage change; we can help you seize the opportunities change presents
Individual & team assessments - we’re accredited in a range of assessments that help identify areas for development
An assessment can stand alone or be part of a programme. They’re effective for giving individual feedback, a chance to reflect and then move forward.
Leaders need to be nurtured and replenished. One-on-one coaching allows leaders to explore their issues, work through challenges and take action to move forward.
Coaching helps emerging leaders recognise the barriers to progress. Coaching helps established leaders continue to grow. Coaching helps burnt-out leaders reclaim their sense of purpose.
Our coaching is challenging, relevant and brings about shifts in thinking and behaviour.
Work with us to develop an organisation-wide leadership framework. This can include behaviours, competencies and development pathways.
