Levelling-up the leaders of today

Focusing on the high-impact behaviours of effective managers, we combine experiential learning and proven tools to rapidly build confidence and turn intention into action.

Thousands of managers across hundreds of organisations

Our work is continually informed by the thousands of managers we're privileged to support every day, and we love to share learning across this community. Becoming a great manager takes lots of very intentional practice — and we've got a brilliant collection of tools and experiments to test out, and lots of evidence to prove their impact.


So where to begin?

Our experience alongside managers at all levels, has revealed four high-impact behaviours modelled among those achieving success: strengths awareness, a coaching mindset, giving and receiving feedback well and having 'connected conversations'. We break these behaviours down into practicable skills, first building the confidence to flex them. This provides a foundation to then build on.

Tailored programmes, delivered directly

Adapted to match experience levels, we'll design and deliver a development programme that draws from our core modules and expands where required.

Cross-organisational cohorts

Throughout the year we bring together cohorts of people-managers from across our partners' teams for a collaborative exploration of our core content.

Ahead of development programmes we often run our Manager Effectiveness Check among teams of participants for a picture of perception around 16 key points — all practically addressable ahead of future effectiveness checks. You can see those 16 points in the PDF here, and use them as interesting reflection tool for your own relationships.
