Why is Leadership so vitally important?

By the year 2020, the average workforce will be 50% Millennials (those born between 1980 and 1995) which means our leadership skills will need to continue to evolve and adapt to suit the demands of our changing team.  The best leaders know that the greatest results are achieved by flexing your Leadership approach to suit your people; this requires knowledge and skills as well as the appetite to be a truly inspirational leader.

Being a great leader is fundamental to success in business.  It's the leader who brings cohesion of the team, who communicates new initiatives, who reviews key performance indicators and manages performance.  The list goes on....

"I found the Essentials of Leadership course really helpful, not only learning new leadership skills, but for my confidence in becoming a new leader. Working through a workbook, whilst having a presentation and some interactive elements, kept the day interesting. I would recommend this course to any newly promoted leaders."

Megan, Operations Director at NTL Plymouth

Our Leadership Training Course provides you with a 20 page workbook, full of Top Tips and practical advice.

Where do we offer our Courses?

We work with clients throughout the South West, so we cover Devon, Cornwall, Somerset and Bristol.  If you're looking for training to be delivered at your business, then we will happily travel to your business, or alternatively, we have a training room for up to 20 staff at our offices in Exeter.

We also run Open Leadership Training Courses in Plymouth, Exeter, Newton Abbot, Taunton and Bristol.  Check out the latest events here.

Our Training Style

Our approach is relaxed yet energetic, fun and practical, giving delegates the space and time to explore their new learning and most importantly, plan how they will use it back in the workplace.

You'll be no doubt pleased to hear that we AVOID POWERPOINT as much as possible.  We usually get a cheer when delegates hear this.

Instead, we use a variety of other interactive tools and resources to help share our content and get our audiences comfortable with their new knowledge and skills.
