Create calm confident inclusive leaders ready for 2020s challenges
Leadership has always been complex and demanding. But the 2020s present a fresh set of demands that previous generations didn’t need to think about:
Hardly surprising then, that many leaders are struggling to meet the demands. Gallup’s 2018 evidence shows that only 15% of the global workforce can be defined as ‘engaged’. We hear stories every day that indicate a significant gap between aspired company culture and policy, and the reality of employee experience.
Our leadership approach creates Calm, Confident, Inclusive Leaders, who know how to get the best out of themselves and the teams and organisations they are part of. We believe that great leadership (and the resulting improved commercial outcomes) come naturally when you focus on getting two key things right: the quality of your thinking and the quality of your relationships.
We start with the quality of thinking, using our resilience model to enable leaders to rise out of fire-fighting towards greater focus and clarity of judgement. This enables leaders to clarify strategy and lead their workforce to deliver it.
We then work on leader relationships:
Leaders will experience this framework in our Leadership 2020 programme, our Team Development events and our Executive Coaching packages.
Executive Leaders are often left out of standard leadership programmes: assumptions are made about this group already knowing enough. Our approach is to facilitate a short focused workshop for the Executive team and then assign Coaches to each Exec, who will work with them individually to listen, challenge, stretch and hold them to account.
This lays the vital groundwork for becoming a genuinely inclusive and high performing employer.

Develop calm confident inclusive leaders ready for 2020s challenges
As a result of this workshop you will:
Three day programme – two day workshop plus one day workshop (one month later)
Focus on trust and relationship building as a route to peak performance
Teams that trust each other are able to challenge each other’s ideas and debate issues honestly without fear of retribution. That makes them more creative and outcomes are well thought through and robust. When all voices are welcome, decision making can be effective.
When people feel a sense of belonging and connection to their close colleagues it enhances their well-being and leads to better team performance. Shared ownership of collective success trumps individual competition.
Our team development days enhance the relationships within your team, setting the whole team up to thrive in a constructive and inclusive environment.
By the end of this workshop, all team members will have:
One day team workshop
In addition to our standard one-day team development programme, we also offer bespoke Executive team development or events for teams who need help to work through a particular challenge or conflict. Our facilitators design engaging and purposeful programmes, using our own White & Lime diagnostic tools, Systems Theory, Myers Briggs Type Indicator, the TMSDI, FIRO-B, Thomas Kilman, and the Five Dysfunctions model.
Our systemic approach reveals what’s currently happening within the team. The group is encouraged to voice all perspectives, even the less popular ones, so that it becomes more self- aware and better skilled to work with conflict and generate robust, positive debate. Once the team has a strong understanding of itself, and a sense of collective responsibility for team performance, solutions naturally emerge.
Having an Executive coach means creating the space to reflect and work on what’s important to you and the organisation. It also means being challenged to stretch yourself to be the best leader you can be.
During a typical six-month coaching assignment, you can expect to define and meet specific personal development or organisational goals of your choice and emerge with a greater sense of confidence and purpose. Coaching goals can be around any topic, and we know we attract clients who want to use our expertise in leadership, resilience, confidence and inclusion. We are often hired alongside leadership development initiatives (like our Leadership 2020 programme) to help change the culture of organisations.
We listen, challenge, stretch and hold our clients to account. Awareness is raised, good intentions come to life, and the result is more capable and impactful leaders.
All our coaches are passionate about people and potential. We see the best in everyone we partner with and care deeply about the long-term impact of our work. We all have established track records in the business world and great depth of experience and credentials in professional coaching.
