A Simple Leadership Framework

In 2009, Steve began a partnership with Professor John Adair and Action Centred Leadership (ACL) is still our framework of choice. It is simple, practical and provides a common leadership language. It is as relevant to the senior leadership team as it is to the newly-promoted supervisor.

360° and Psychometric Profiling

With a carefully selected tool we can help you identify the right people for your business, enable them to develop as capable leaders and build effective teams. We regularly use them in our leadership development programmes and as part of team-building activities.

Learning through Practice

The opportunity to practice in a safe space with constructive feedback is a great way to learn and is an integral part of our programmes and courses. Our role play specialists are professional actors and experienced facilitators who make this process truly valuable.
