Activate the potential of your managers

Managers are often referred to as the glue in an organisation, bridging the gap between the top team and front-line colleagues. Yet they are often promoted based on individual contribution rather than leadership capability. We give managers the mindset, tools and experiences to thrive in today’s changing world.

How it works

Taking your managers beyond performance

  • 1. Based on manager needs

    The right ingredients

    We genuinely care about improving people’s lives, both at work and beyond. Our manager development programmes not only help people to understand rationally, but also engage emotionally to drive behavioural change.

    The right mindset

    We believe managers should ‘unlearn to learn’ – dealing with adversity and seeking feedback. This has more impact than any capability they can develop.

    The necessary skills

    We offer a safe space for your managers to practise and take risks. Learning is contextualised within ‘business-as-usual’ and immediately transferable.

    Measurable results

    We measure impact from start to finish. If we discover that an intervention isn’t creating shift or having the desired effect, we change it there and then.

  • 2. Based on delivery

Our approach

Discover our Performance Learning Journey

  • 1. Engage

    Success of any management development journey starts with engaged learners. Managers need to understand the purpose of their learning and commit to making a change. They also need to understand where their strengths and development opportunities lie before they can positively improve their performance.

  • 2. Activate

    Providing a variety of problem-centred learning inputs allows managers to explore a topic and see the links to their own role or performance. From there, our experiential learning methods encourage leaders to discover and experiment with new skills before finally putting them into practice.

  • 3. Accelerate

    Feedback and measurement tools allow managers to identify their progress and plan for long-term changes in their behaviour. With purposeful practice these new skills and behaviours become automatic, enabling leaders to boost their performance.

  • 4. Discover & reflect

    Reflection is key to experiential learning and is integrated at each of the above three stages of our Performance Learning Journey. A locker of resources allows leaders to tap into the brain’s natural curiosity and their intrinsic motivation to develop.
