The needs of modern leaders are sophisticated, complex, and nuanced. We provide inclusive and immersive environments and engaging development programmes in which exceptional leaders can learn and grow.
Leading through rapid and constant change is now a non-negotiable skill for public sector leaders and managers who need to think, act and react differently. Transformational change comes from cognitive, behavioural, and emotional development.
Through our insight and innovation, we’ve identified the vital leadership capabilities to focus our bespoke development programmes on:
Growth in consciousness improves self-regulation and expenditure of personal energy. This leads to the ability to recognise this in others, empathising and effectively managing the dynamics of pressure and stress for themselves and their teams.
Building and leading inclusive teams
Understanding the neurology of professional performance and how psychological safety contributes to high performing teams who deliver organisational objectives.
Greater mental complexity
Developing the skill to increase divergent and conceptual thinking whilst making quick decisions with limited information.
Modular blended learning
Our leadership programs are designed to support leaders and teams in generating change through a modular blended learning experience.
This immersive experience involves a series of interconnected activities, including critical thinking and collaboration with thought leaders and guest contributors as well as exploring how to drive social change through their teams and the business.
We provide a bespoke and evolving learning approach that gives participants access to multiple leadership development interventions simultaneously.
Design and delivering a new Accelerated Leadership Development Programme
As a result of the programme, 58% of participants received a promotion or positive career move, 8% made an internal move at the same band. 94% of participants rated the overall programme 4 or 5, out of 5, with 97% stating they would recommend the programme.
“GatenbySanderson has been partnering with us at Westminster City Council to deliver our Senior Leadership Development Programme (SLDP). Feedback from participants undergoing the programme has been extremely positive with many commenting on the value of integrating brain-based techniques with psychological models that give the leaders a common language has made a real difference to those they are supporting.”
We’re seeing and supporting a shift from individual ‘heroic’ leadership styles to more collegiate, connected, and shared approaches to tackle the volatile, complex and uncertain demands on your leaders.
This demands more sophistication than the conventional approach to team building or away days that ignore the specific needs of top team development.
With extensive experience in delivering leadership programs across large and complex public sector organizations, we understand the unique needs of senior leadership teams.
Creating team-centric, agile and networked organisations
Our Top Team Development Programme addresses all the needs of a public sector leadership team with four development paths:
– New teams
– Team performance
– Team dynamics
– Strategic teams
These modular interventions have a specific focus and learning outcomes and can be used independently or together.
Our program enhances team development and performance while nurturing relationships and addressing interpersonal needs. This creates a more inclusive and integrated team, allowing for collegial thinking with innovation, vision, and strategy that’s sustainable long after the programme ends.
Leading in the public sector has never been so volatile and complex with increased public scrutiny, multiple stakeholder demands and political agendas.
Being exposed to a variety of ‘risk states’ and cultural challenges can reduce leadership capability and lead to poor performance, which can have a devastating impact on the leader, the team and the wider organisation.
We understand the unique and individual journeys that each experienced and emerging leader faces, including those from diverse lived experiences, and can provide bespoke coaching to support your needs.
– Developing your potential.
– Embracing change.
– Navigating systemic barriers.
– Responding to sector demands.
– Developing a personal leadership brand.
– Harnessing individual leadership strengths.
– Improve self and team performance.
The right coach for you
We know that having the right coach who understands your unique challenges is crucial for successful coaching outcomes. We use a 5-stage process to match you with the perfect coach, ensuring that you receive the tailored support they need to achieve their goals throughout the programme.
Tailored coaching programmes
We have 4 Executive Coaching Programs tailored to the specific challenges faced by different leaders:
1. Executive Coaching
2. New CEO
3. Women in Leadership
4. Leaders from Diverse Communities.
Coachees can expect to identify their own development needs and challenges and reflect on what’s going well.
We monitor and re-accredit all our executive coaches annually to ensure the effectiveness of our coaching programs. We also evaluate the effectiveness of coaching interventions midway and at the program end to ensure coachees receive the best support possible.
Executive Coaching with Essex County Council
We delivered executive coaching with 60 senior leaders across the council, supporting the Executive, Senior and middle leaders through a top to bottom restructure, cost reduction programme, cultural transformation, and a need to digitise and innovate service delivery.
95% of all participants reported being satisfied or highly satisfied with their coach across our key indicators: coaching direction, goal focus, development, and coaching communications.
We provide an extensive number of pre-designed leadership development workshops that can be delivered one-off or as a series and be tailored to your organisation.
