Create an environment of empowerment and resourcefulness.

“A leader takes people where they want to go. A great leader takes people where they don’t necessarily want to go, but ought to be.”

Rosalyn Carter


In-depth, practical and effective in-house development programmes for you and your leaders and managers, men and women. Designed to have maximum impact, all our programmes include the essential three key elements from our proprietary Leadership Framework: 

WHO the leader is

How they show up and the impact they have.


WHAT to do

Taking out the guesswork and providing the exact methodology, steps and processes that work.

HOW to go about it

The essential skills to learn, practice and apply, focussing on quality of conversations.

Too many programmes address one or maybe two of these elements.
The truth is without all three you are wasting your investment. 

Leadership – driving individual performance

Delivered in modules or as an integrated bespoke leadership programme:

Motivating & Engaging Your People

For team leaders – new and experienced at any level in the organisation who need their people to step up a gear and improve performance and results.

Recognise any of these challenges?

  • Exhausted having to do all the work yourself
  • Not able to play to your strengths or do what you need to
  • Think you’re doing it right, but it’s making things worse not better
  • Things aren’t progressing as you want, despite a huge amount of effort on your part
  • People are underperforming and I don’t know what to do or say for fear of making it worse
  • Deadlines and opportunities missed, people not doing what they should be and they could do it so much better or faster

Your leaders will be equipped to :

  • Develop and grow their people
  • Drive shifts in mindset, attitude and behaviours
  • Improve performance in their teams
  • Engage and collaborate across teams
  • Raise and resolve difficult people issues
  • Manage poor performers, resisters and square pegs in round holes with ease

I believe I have the knowledge and tools to be able to engage fully with my team to enable them to explore the possibilities and develop solutions, making them much less reliant on my input. I can now free up more of my time be more strategic and add value to the organisation… In just one conversation, I was able to avoid a key player leaving the organisation, saving the business £1000s!”
Anne Watson, HR Director, McAvoy Construction

Developing & Coaching Your People

Ideal for leaders that want to shift their culture towards personal responsibility and empowerment.  For all those who are in leadership and management roles as well as those who require excellent interpersonal and influencing skills in their role. 

Participants learn how to work with their colleagues to craft an inspiring vision, clarify goals, create partnerships, build personal enthusiasm and commitment, and take bold action. Participants acquire the core people skills around listening and empathy and learn how to shift their style to be more collaborative and inclusive.

Does any of this resonate?

  • I shoulder most of the load and end up working way too hard. I can’t keep it up much longer.
  • They won’t do things the way I want them to and I’m having to do it all myself.
  • They come to me with all their problems, I have to come up with all the answers.
  • They just wait around waiting to be told what to do next.
  • They just don’t seem to care, they don’t complete things, keep their heads down and just keep doing things the same old way.

Participants acquire the core people skills around listening and empathy and learn how to shift their style to be more collaborative and inclusive.

Results you can expect:

  • Create a clear, focused and inspiring vision (which inspires others).
  • Build personal enthusiam and commitment.
  • Become more purposeful and influential.
  • Grow leadership capacity and qualities (theirs and others).
  • Develop Emotional Intellligence.
  • Develop powerful partnerships, lead and take responsibility.
  • Inspire others to be creative, collaborative and committed leaders, whatever their position.

  • Things aren’t progressing as you want, despite a huge amount of effort on your part

Then it’s time to find out the sure-fire and simple methodology to engage your people and get them on board with the change effort you are leading.

Results you can expect:

  • Get 80% of your people behind your initiatives!
  • Align people behind one agenda, including those you don’t directly manage
  • Break down silos across the organisation
  • Handle resistence and difficult people with confidence
  • Achieve the results you intend
