The Leading For Excellence Programme

It can be challenging being a leader whether you’re new to your role or a seasoned player. Does any of the following sound familiar?


  • Working harder for lower returns
  • Having to deal with underperforming or disengaged employees
  • An over reliance on you as a leader to make decisions and solve problems because of a lack of initiative and innovation from staff
  • Not having time to plan to enhance business performance
  • Feeling bored or unenthusiastic (if your role or business is well established) and wondering where to take things next
  • An incoherent team pulling in different directions
  • Too busy working in the business to work on it


Our comprehensive programme enables you to deal with these challenges.
