If your organisation:

  • Seems to want 'heroic leaders'
  • Assumes 'experts' are leaders
  • Seems over-managed and under-led
  • Decisions always come from the top
  • Has difficulty distinguishing between leadership and management

Or a unique mix of these

These are developed with customers based on a detailed needs analysis, (How We Work With You) for individuals groups, teams and organisations.

  • Self-assessing the overall organisational leadership profile
  • Leadership as a 'contact sport'
  • Developing 'distributed leadership' for more effective decision making
  • Transformative leadership: the everyday function of 'professional' working
  • Leadership: building an experimental mindset with risk as the basis of learning
  • Leadership to reduce the cost of 'management' - from 'managing' to self managing for greater commitment



Developing leadership to enable individuals, teams and organisations to lead change for sustainable high performance


Thought Leadership Forums

Our Thought Leadership resources are designed to tackle 'messy' issues with new ideas and forums to stimulate new improvement thinking.

  • An explicit aspect of a programme, or a programme designed to meet specific individual or organisational needs
