Management Development Programmes
Our highly sought after management development programmes enhance individual and organisational capability through world-class training, leadership coaching, consultancy and diagnostics. We offer a structured delivery model which is proven to help leaders to develop their competencies and confidence across 7 dimensions (see graphic below). We know that these are essential for leading people at all levels, particularly during periods of change, uncertainty, conflict and crisis.
We keep the messages simple and accessible. However, you can be assured that each management development programme we design and deliver is underpinned by powerful theoretical frameworks such as positive psychology, behavioural science, whole systems thinking, emotional intelligence, transactional analysis, nonviolent communication (NVC) and NLP
Centred around our 7 key leadership dimensions
Engage Leadership™ comprises 7 leadership dimensions which, when combined, enhance leaders’ capability to remain people, performance and engagement-focused. We help managers and leaders to develop these 7 dimensions through skilfully tailored management and leadership programmes.
Each programme benefits from the very latest teaching and learning methods including psychometrics, tutor led workshops, action learning sets, 360-degree reviews, work-based projects, individual & group coaching, and peer mentoring. Each Engage Leadership™ programme enables leaders and managers to develop the confidence and competence they need to engage their teams from operational supervisory level to senior leadership.
For over 20 years, Engage Leadership has been proudly working with many household names to help their managers and leaders to create high performing, people-centred organisations.
We provide a high-impact approach for leaders to create a climate for success in which their teams can collaborate with passion, focus and energy.
“The whole experience working with Engage Leadership has been great. Chloe was supporting us from start to finish, she went above and beyond to help us book the right solution. We chose to go with the Quality Conversations training as we wanted to equip our first-time managers with a toolkit to handle common challenges like giving feedback, leading tricky conversations and managing conflict. Our trainer, Aideen, was a fabulous facilitator and she shared useful strategies with everyone. She made the training into an interactive conversation with everyone feeling involved and included.”
“The trainer’s delivery of the course has been just the right balance between being informative as well as enjoyable. The course covered a number of key areas in a short space of time, but did not feel overwhelming. The trainer gave us the opportunity to reflect back on our learning through engaging activities which has proven to be meaningful and has personally given me the confidence to start using new skills and implement the learning acquired especially around leadership traits and styles.”
“The course offers intense learning on such important and powerful human connections, working heavily with emotions. As all of us interface whether that be in work or personal, such skills, tools and techniques can help, learnt through this course. It equips you with concepts and complex issues better. We had a great trainer and had a wonderful, though very intensive, week.”
“At the age of 53, I found this the most inspiring experience in development I have had in my working life.”
“Had been impressed with a talk from David on achieving the benefits of ‘positive conflict’ so invited him/Engage Leadership to facilitate a process to optimise our Executive team-working. Really worked well: the power of professional external facilitation allowed us all to take more risk and confront issues in a more open way. Now have a great framework – both individual and team – for taking the team to an even better level of interaction: critical given the pressures we are facing in our business sector. And it was fun too!”
TEACHING AND LEARNING METHODS
Through the Engage Leadership delegate zone, we provide access to eLearning content including worksheets, videos and quizzes.
Skills practice is also known as role play. Engage Leadership facilitators love role play and so will delegates on one of our courses after they’ve done it properly.
We encourage delegates to keep detailed learning logs to assist their learning.
Tutorials and workshops.
Generally, one per month but we can run more if required.
Coaching (one to one or group)
We can run coaching sessions on a one to one basis or for small groups of 2 or 3. This is particularly useful in our advanced management programmes.
We recommend DISC, SDI (Strengths Development Inventory) and MBTI®. We are able to provide feedback through one to one or group coaching.
360 Degree Learning
This is a useful way to gather and share feedback from team members and managers. Our facilitators relay all feedback given in a supportive and constructive way.
Delegates are encouraged to apply the learning into a real life activity such as a project or a change programme.
Teams work collaboratively to solve problems or overcome challenges.
Forum roleplay with actors
Professional actors are used to simulate a fully immersive role play. They are great fun and always receive top marks.
Should you wish to receive additional recognition for the development of your leaders, we can include the option for recognised accreditation of our development programmes, through the ILM (Institute of Leadership and Management).
All ILM-accredited programmes have a structured assessment criteria, which include completion of assignments and reflective logs. These criteria vary depending on subject and qualification level. We can provide ILM-accredited training in a range of topics from National vocational qualification (NVQ) level 2 to level 7.
