Engage, motivate and influence through clear and more powerful conversations. Foster the devolution of responsibility and power, promote the recognition of choice and increase the ability of others to take initiative and lead in their own right. This is relational leadership.
Support your leaders to build skills in emotional intelligence and learn how to use a positive psychology approach to leverage strengths in others.
We will work with you to create a programme that suits your organisational needs. If there are any topics you are interested in tackling that are not listed below, we are happy to discuss them with you as we design your programme.
Our Solutions for Relational Leadership Development
Engage your organisation
Many companies measure their workforce engagement. But we help leaders ensure this is not a 'tick in the box' exercise, but a real force for transformation. Together we discuss how to work on your organisation’s levers and create a sustainable leadership culture where teams thrive.
Action learning supports shared learning from real business cases in a safe and inspiring environment. It generates ideas and fosters the sense of support to move situations forward, aligning ways of working within an organisation. We teach participants a format (or several creative ones) to discuss ‘difficult’ topics in the future.
Creating a feedback culture
Build on your understanding of how different cultures think and communicate - and how that affects the giving and receiving feedback. Develop your organisation's listening skills, its handling of difficult messages and inclusion of feed-forwards to cultivate a healthier organisational culture that is set for growth.
Governance, policies and procedures
When the people affected by policies and procedures take accountability for their design and implementation, they are far more likely to work with them instead of against them.
We’ll help your leaders to work closely with people, collaborating on ideas and input and helping them to own their own policies and procedures.
Lead through crisis
Managing a crisis starts when there is no crisis - we help leaders recognise the early warning signals that almost always precede one. Leaders will understand the importance of personal character, corporate culture, leveraging an organisational ecosystem and how to learn from previous experiences e.g. the Covid-19 pandemic.
Inclusion is behavioural. Everyone has biases that influence their beliefs and behaviours - but they can be mitigated. Through inclusive leadership awareness workshops or transformational redesign of key decision-making processes, we’ll work with you to enable the right behaviours.
Explore how leaders manage the quality of their interactions and increase their impact through everyday connections. We invite leaders to develop practical skills to create a generative thinking environment and to trigger mindset shifts in their colleagues, increasing their performance, engagement and success at work.
Strengths based leadership
Leaders working with a strength-based pay attention to what already works, appreciate their impact and explore opportunities to implement their strengths elsewhere. People using their strengths are three times more likely to report having an excellent quality of life and are six times more likely to be engaged in their jobs. On average they are 7.8% more productive and their organisations are 8.9% more profitable.
Self-awareness, impulse control, persistence, motivation, empathy and social deftness are all qualities that mark people who excel. Such leaders - and those around them - flourish. We explore how your leaders perceive their own emotional intelligence and how others perceive them. Together we uncover strengths, how leaders can leverage those strengths more and areas for development.
Communicate for impact
We ask the following questions: How do you currently deliver a message? How do you currently communicate with your stakeholders? What is your greatest challenge in convincing your audience? We then work with leaders to understand how to apply different communication theories to tailor their message to their audience, increase their personal credibility and improve buy-in. Leaders will receive constructive feedback on their communication, presence and storytelling.
Our global team of partners has over 200 years' experience of working with individuals, teams and organisations.
We'd be happy to talk to you about your own requirements and goals, and craft a solution that is specific to your situation.
