Future leaders.

Too often, leadership skills are developed in people after they have stepped into a leadership role, and this brings risk.

It means that either they will sink rather than swim, or that they will encounter unnecessary difficulties or miss valuable opportunities.

We believe that developing leadership communication skills in your new joiners and your high potential talent pools will help them find their voice sooner. That way, they can start adding value sooner and at scale. It should also be considered much earlier on in the succession planning cycle.

For such groups, with a broad set of needs, we recognise the need for a calibrated investment. We therefore take a curricular approach, starting with a ‘core’ programme.

This establishes the foundation skills an individual needs to present themselves and their work with greater clarity, credibility, and confidence.

Participants leave our Future Leaders foundation programmes with:

Self-awareness

A deeper awareness of what it’s like to be on the receiving end of their communication, and a clearer understanding of their communication range.

Personal narrative

An understanding of the engagement factors that generate an audience’s trust, and started to develop their own personal narrative to help bring business messages to life.

Content & delivery

Experience crafting and delivering a clear, compelling call to action in response to either a prescribed business challenge, or based on a scenario that’s ‘live’ for them at the time.

Bite-sized workshops

After the foundation programme, we provide a broad topic-based curriculum from which you can choose based on the needs of your particular cohort.

These lively and interactive sessions each feature core models, a set of practical tools, and include plenty of practice to help people internalise the learning.
