The impact of our programmes

Our practical and experiential approach enables leaders to develop:

• Greater awareness of their leadership strengths and impact, in order to more effectively influence others.
• Greater resilience and ability to manage their behaviour under pressure and in different situations.
• Deeper ability to review and reflect, in order to learn from their experiences.
• Greater empathy and ability to build effective relationships with others.
• Increased confidence to take on new responsibilities and challenges.
• Greater understanding of the complex nature of the systems they lead in and problems they face, recognising the need to work through and with others in order to improve things.
• Greater recognition of the moral elements of leadership and comfortability making difficult decisions in order to do the ‘right’ thing on a difficult day.

Our Approach

Our approach develops leaders awareness and confidence through:

• Immersive simulations that enable leaders to practice working in teams through the completion of tasks that test different leadership and followership skills.
• Video reviews that provide a powerful opportunity for leaders to see themselves in action and reflect on their influence on others, and the impact of others behaviours on them and the success of a task.
• The triangulation of feedback from video reviews, peers, faculty and individual’s reflections.
• A coaching approach that helps leaders to better understand their strengths, influence and areas for development.
• Introducing conceptual ideas and models to develop leaders’ thinking about leadership.
• The expertise of our faculty who bring extensive leadership and coaching experience from a diverse range of sectors. Including health, defence, business and academia.
• Programmes are rooted in the real work of leaders with no use of case studies.

We are committed to understanding and demonstrating the impact of the programmes we deliver. To this end we conduct robust evaluations of all programmes and regularly follow up with those who attend programmes and commission bespoke programmes to develop case studies that showcase the longer term impact of attending.
