Leadership Development Training

We believe leadership is a responsibility not a position and that improving it can only start if individuals are prepared to take personal responsibility to change.

We help leaders at all levels to step up to this responsibility by facilitating the ‘powerful awareness’ required for them to take ownership of their development. Using all learning environments and channels we work in partnership to create and deliver stretching, experience-rich programmes that inspire career and life-affirming memories.

About Leadership Development Training

We develop and transform your leaders supporting them as they progress through your organisation. This system level understanding is critically important to an efficient leadership pipeline and ultimately to a high performing organisation. We work with singular or multiple cohorts at various stages and all our programmes are designed to support the delivery of the organisational strategy.

Who should choose this solution?

We work with a broad range of organisations at all levels. We have specialist expertise in working with engineers and highly technical people across several engineering and manufacturing industries with multiple and connected leadership cadres. Typically, the leadership development programme is for individuals that are about to start their leadership journeys.

Leadership Development Training Outcomes


You will learn to utilise your values and emotions to guide your decisions and actions and be encouraged to give control away and distribute leadership.

You will have the ability to confront your self-limiting beliefs, mind-sets and fears that stop you to grow as leaders and you will be able to value your personal well being as a means to sustain performance

For those who decide to complete the ILM Level 3 & 5 leadership Management Award/Certificate, you will receive a Certificate from Mission Performance ILM Accredited Centre.

Why this solution is for you

The Leadership Development programme will improve the sustainability of your business through the development of leadership cadres who can inspire, innovate and future-proof the business model. It will equip senior leaders with the skills and insights to lead through major strategic upheaval and change. To enable them to re-instil confidence, provide a clear sense of direction and foster organisational wide collaboration. Finally, it will help technical specialists to value the time they spend coaching other human beings as much as they value doing technical tasks.

Organisational Wide Talent (Leadership) Programmes

Working with organisations across multiple cohorts and seniority, we typically deliver leadership programmes that adhere to a ‘Systems Approach’ to developing your high potentials and high performers.

This approach is based upon Drotter and Charan’s Leadership pipeline philosophy. By adopting this approach we enable clients to manage the sustainability of their businesses through the (proactive) identification and development of Talent at multiple levels in their organisations. This approach has won our clients industry awards and recognition in addition to future proofing their businesses. We are an approved ILM centre for all of our Leadership Programmes at levels 3 & 5 – see below for more information.

Leadership Development Programme for First Level Leaders 

Developing First Level Leaders 

We prepare individuals to contribute to team success by focusing on the following outcomes:

  • Clarity on personal values and their alignment to organisational values
  • Exchanging expectations on professional standards of excellence
  • Developing their self-awareness and recognising their individual strengths and weaknesses and the impacts these have on their colleagues
  • Developing their communication mindsets and skills to become active team contributors
  • Helping them to set personal and professional development goals and the associated mind-sets that accompany them

Key challenges/opportunities: 

Typically individuals at this stage of their careers need the foundation skills and insights to start owning their own development and progression. 

Leadership Development Programme for Mid-Level Leaders

Developing Mid-Level Leaders

We prepare leaders to deliver a number of specific outcomes at this level, these include:

  • To own their succession plans by selecting & developing future talent
  • To learn how to make the transition to a leadership role and the associated changes in mindset and the development of new skills that enable them to:
    • Divest their individual tasks; delegate and assign work; value managerial work over technical tasks
    • Motivate and inspire others; build high performance teams; coach others
    • Inspire and facilitate innovation and creativity; facilitate effective problem solving and balanced decision making
    • Measure and manage performance; resolving conflict and making more effective decisions
    • Embrace change and diversity

Key challenges/opportunities: 

Typically leaders at this level need to make a mental shift first before they can make an effective transition to a leadership role. 

‘They make the transition to manager without making a behavioural or value-based transition; they must believe that making time for others, planning, coaching are necessary tasks and are their responsibility & view them as being mission-critical’.

Leadership Development Programme for Senior-Level Leaders

Developing Senior-Level Leaders

We prepare leaders to deliver a number of specific outcomes at this level, these include:

  • Holding their people accountable for managerial work over technical
  • Upholding organisational values and culture by rewarding the right behaviours and penalising the wrong ones
  • Communicating and modelling standards
  • Coaching and mentoring others
  • Selecting people for advancement
  • Assigning managerial and leadership work
  • Monitoring and managing performance
  • Thinking beyond their function to align individual and team actions to organisational strategy

Key challenges/opportunities:

Typically leaders at this level need to lead through others to get things done.

‘By holding their people accountable for the time they spend coaching others will help the flow of Talent through the organisation. Failure to let go of what made them successful, technically, will have implications for engagement and the performance of more junior colleagues.’
