Leadership Development

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.

Rosalynn Carter, former First Lady of the USA

Leadership Development

Investing in your leaders is one of the most important things you can do for your business. Strong leadership improves employee engagement, confidence and retention and strengthens organisational performance to deliver on your strategic objectives. 

For successful professional development, you need interventions that:

  • Aim to change behaviours and habits;

  • Provide a clear link to the day to day role, with a work-based element;

  • Look at the whole person and their "inner game"; and

  • Don't just focus on the top tier, but look at leadership at all levels.


My approach combines deep expertise in designing and facilitating leadership programmes with the lessons I have learned from leading my own successful, committed teams over the last twenty years.

Whether you are looking for targeted skills training or an all-encompassing blended programme, then I would be delighted to work with you.


Skill areas previous programmes for leaders have covered include:

  • Leadership (including aspiring or emerging leaders)

  • Influence and impact

  • Relationships

  • Coaching skills

  • Communication

  • Teamwork

  • Business Partnering

  • Negotiation

  • Self awareness

  • Consulting skills

  • Change management 

  • Critical thinking
