Developing leadership

Once you have identified staff with potential or diagnosed strengths and development needs, you need to ensure that support is put in place to enable people to make the most of the feedback. This sounds obvious and easy to do but it is often difficult to sustain and can involve costly and time-consuming training programmes, often not aligned to individuals’ needs.

Our Occupational Psychologists work with a diverse range of individuals and teams across the public sector in order to develop leadership capabilities in a timely and cost effective manner.

We can help you optimise the capabilities of your leaders by:

  • Understanding the behaviours that are required for successful leadership in your organisation and bringing them to life through 360-degree feedback, developmental assessments and workshops.
  • Helping line managers understand their team’s complementary strengths and how to make the most of them
  • Conducting 1:1 coaching sessions with leaders to help them to develop against your specific success criteria
  • Delivering ‘Strengths Focused™’ leadership workshops to help teams identify opportunities and risks and how to work more successfully together
