Team Leader Programmes

What would be the impact in your business if every team increased their effectiveness and efficiency by 25%?

Given how much time is spent in most businesses this could earn you a further half day to a day a week of extra time to develop and deliver your business plan.

Our programmes use your current business issues as the focus for the development work. Your team leaders are developing whilst carrying out their urgent and important tasks.

You are the experts on how to run your business. We are experts on how to develop team leaders. Putting the two together gives you collaborative advantages that neither you or we could produce independently.

For those who have already been through a leadership development programme with us there is no need to attend the Foundation programme.

All programmes use your current work priorities as the focus for learning. There are no scenarios based on other business’s issues.

The programmes builds step by step and it is not possible to be on the later programmes without building the fundamentals.

Programmes can run with between 6-12 team leaders in each cohort.

Currently programmes are only offered in English.
