Our tailored leadership modules typically combine face-to-face interactive training with inter-modular activities and coaching so that you can put into practice the insights, knowledge and skills you’ve learned, try some things out and have ongoing support in between sessions.
Our bespoke leadership programmes often consist of multiple modules, developed over a 12-18 month period so you get to explore all aspects of your personal leadership style.
This module focuses on you; your preferred communication style and your current approach to leadership. We explore how you want to be perceived as a leader and how to develop a leadership mindset.
This module looks at the skills, knowledge and attitude required to contribute through others; motivation, delegation, feedback and influencing are just some of the topics covered.
This module identifies the skills, knowledge and attitude required to contribute strategically to the business and what to consider in the wider landscape. A clear vision is essential to the success of any team and business, therefore this is a strong theme throughout this module.
This module will equip you with the necessary tools needed to unite and support one common goal and to be a role model for leading change; opening people’s minds to think differently and instil enthusiasm for change.
This module will help you to communicate and influence colleagues for whom you don’t have line management responsibility for. It looks at different communication styles and considers how to influence different people in a way that uses personal power rather than positional power. We will explore the reasons for conflict in relationships and develop the most productive mindset and skills for handling situations in a mutually beneficial way.
It takes great courage to be vulnerable, particularly when you’re leader. We’re supposed to be a pillar of strength and not show any weaknesses, right? Well in today’s business world, there’s never been a better time to be our genuine and authentic selves. This means putting aside pretences, being your real self and being a role model for others to do the same.
As the title suggest, in this workshop you’ll be working with horses. Horses are able to read human emotion and they have an ability to foster change. They respond to what they’re experiencing at any given moment and aren’t swayed by our “perceived” status or standing.
Feedback from the horses is totally authentic and timely. Even the slightest shift in our approach can make a huge difference to the horse and take us from being ineffective to effective and this is no different when we work with people we’re leading. The lessons learned when working with the horses can then be transferred to the workplace.
Even those who are afraid of horses find themselves having a unique bond with the animals they work with.
