Leadership and Management Development
All our Leadership and Management development programmes start with a focus on the business outcomes your organisation and its managers need to achieve.
With our bespoke programmes, your managers will take away the knowledge and skills they need to become more productive and more inspiring leaders – people who motivate their workforce and achieve results.
From day one, we fully support your staff and their line managers as they journey through the development process. We’ve also created some great tools and techniques to ensure the skills and behaviour they learn is transferred back into the workplace.
The format of each development programme is tailored to meet the specific requirements of your organisation. This can take the form of one-on-one coaching sessions or group learning. Whether you prefer short workshop-based interventions or a blended modular programme, we have the experience and skills to find the best solution for you.

- Modular learning sessions
- Online learning and 360° feedback

Developing Leadership at CFS Management Ltd [Hover over to pause]
The brief was to design a Manager’s Toolkit for over 1,000 managers across the organisation. In order to diagnose the specific needs of the managers, an Instep induction period was scheduled to enable the project team to spend time researching the organisation to understand its culture, values, business challenges and what the current level of skill and capabilities were across the management community. It was also an opportunity to identify our client’s outcomes and success measures (ROI). Once this information had been gathered, we were able to start work on the technical design of the project, based on our findings, which indicated that the toolkit needed to be a 4 module programme. The team presented its first draft for the toolkit to the programme sponsor at a half-way point in the design, and were told we had exceeded expectations. Stage 3 of the project was to involve the line managers through briefings in order to ensure they had an understanding of how important their roles were in the transfer of learning, and ensuring that they were creating opportunities for their team to embed their learning. Stage 4 involved the delivery which we were asked to do as the design work had been so successful. This involved an intensive two-week pilot programme which we used to test the design with selected delegates. Final amends were then made on the toolkit before large scale rollout.

In August 2010 we were the successful tender applicants to deliver two Management Development programmes for Warburtons; the ‘Acquire’ programme is for first time people managers, new starters or line managers who have had no previous training. It aims to give them the core skills to lead teams with skill and confidence. This is an eight-day, four module programme delivered over a four month period. The ‘Inspire’ programme, for existing managers, aims to get managers to inspire teams and all those around them through visible leadership. This programme has a core two-day module with five optional skills development sessions available.
