This is essentially high-level seminar work that may be a module of your leadership development programme, a part of your internal university or association with a business school. Nigel and his colleagues have worked with internal company universities in organisations like GKN, Lilly and Thyssen Krupp, as well as top business schools such as Oxford University’s Said school and Berlin’s ESMT.
Naturally the content is tailored to fit your needs analysis and overall development agenda, but typically we focus on Innovative Leadership applied to themes as varied as Talent Development, Building An Innovative Culture and Creating High Performing Teams, as well as more commercial topics such as Value Selling and Business Negotiation Skills.
In every case we aim to work with examples that are meaningful, although with the primary philosophy that your organisation is its own best case study! Encouraging peer coaching and mentoring is one of the most reliable means of sustaining effective change.
Leadership work is often requested by the Public and Educational Sectors as well as business: we have a great track record of working with these kind of groups, from Heathcare Trusts, Head Teachers’ Associations, The UK Cabinet Office, and many more.
