Nearly three quarters of UK organisations report leadership and management skills deficits and reportedly, 71% of today's leaders are not ready to lead their organisation in the future.
High performance in teams and organisations requires curious and agile leaders who can solve tomorrow's issues and create an environment where talent can thrive.
We're here to help your people become the best leaders they can be. Through our thought leadership, based on the latest neuroscience and performance psychology, we design bespoke, context specific development journeys that transition your people from managers through to strategic leaders. Our leadership framework is proven to develop adaptable and capable leaders who enable future success.
From our research, we know that what it takes to be effective at one level of leadership differs dramatically from the next. Leaders need to develop different skills for different levels, as well as adapting to the changing requirements of businesses that are constantly transforming.
Typically these are your first-line to mid-level managers who are promoted on the back of their performance as outstanding individual contributors. Our programmes can help them to shift their focus from their individual performance to building and managing a high performing team.
These are your leaders who are responsible for multiple teams (and leaders) or a function or division. Our programmes can help them to see the bigger picture so they can perfect the balance between their short term functional objectives and the longer term strategic goals of your business.
These senior leaders carry a significant amount of responsibility and visibility. Our programmes are designed to develop these leaders so they can drive execution, initiate change, act as inspiring role models for the organisation and set the strategic direction of your company.
A new context for businesses and leaders is emerging and 79% of C-suite leaders agree that senior leaders in their organisations will need to adopt a different set of mindsets for their business to succeed in the future.
This whitepaper looks at the five paradoxical mindsets of future-fit leaders and how leaders will be able to navigate an uncertain future with nuance and confidence.
Our Performance Learning Journey is designed to create an engaging learning experience and is underpinned by our evidence-based understanding of how people learn, behave and improve their performance. It provides the opportunity to track shifts in performance and measure your ROI. Every journey is unique, and your tailored programme will follow this high level process:
Success of any leadership development journey starts with engaged learners. Leaders need to understand the purpose of their learning and commit to making a change. They also need to understand where their strengths and development opportunities lie before they can successfully enhance their performance.
Providing a variety of problem-centred learning inputs allows leaders to explore a topic and see the links to their own role or performance. From there, our experimental learning methods will encourage leaders to discover and experiment with new skills and put them into practice.
Feedback and measurement tools allow leaders to identify their progress and plan for long-term changes in their behaviour. Purposeful practice then enables leaders to enhance performance by helping skills and behaviours to become automatic.
Reflection is key to experiential learning and is integrated at each of the above three stages of the Performance Learning Journey. A locker of resources allows leaders to tap into the brain’s natural curiosity and their intrinsic motivation to develop.
Experts in the fields of performance, psychology and business application, our consultants have been designing award-winning leadership programmes for more than two decades. Their humanistic and experiential approach, alongside the quality of their facilitation skills, sets them apart from the rest.
Making sure the modern learner has a transformational experience is at the heart of our approach. Our unique Performance learning Journey methodology underpins our leadership development programmes ensuring that creativity and impact blend seamlessly.
Our high-performance diagnostic tools objectively identify development gaps, opportunities and measure the progress of your leaders. We are obsessed with outcomes and appreciate an investment of this size needs to demonstrate meaningful ROI.
We understand the complexities of leadership and management and know that your people will be at different stages of their leadership journey. Our programmes are designed to allow people to follow their own journey, whilst building the critical capabilities your business needs.
