Evolve Leaders

Leadership Development Workshops

  • Bespoke programmes over 6-12 months to facilitate deep and lasting change.
  • One or half day workshops, where we uncover current ways of working and identify small, impactful actions to facilitate immediate change.
  • 1-2 hour bite-size booster sessions for motivation, as a top up to learning, or to bring back into focus something that was already known.

Below is a taste of some of the sessions I provide. If there’s something in particular you are looking for, please get in touch.

The content of these workshops can be built into a bespoke programme.

Bespoke Development

I get to know organisational needs, build trust & develop resilient, supportive leadership teams, who understand how to develop the emotional intelligence, resilience and capabilities of their teams.

Organisations who are responsive to change need leaders who are coaches and facilitators, capable of leading through ambiguity.  The ability to create a vision, even when the path is unclear, or because it’s new and everyone is learning together.

The best way to decide whether we can meet your needs is to get in touch.  Understanding your organisation – it’s culture, the way you do things and the challenges you are facing means we can provide the best solution, learning will happen and lasting change will take place.
