In challenging times, with sights often focused solely on hitting targets, it can be easy to forget the ‘people’ element of a successful business. Yet leaders and managers who inspire and engage their employees are more likely to realise the full potential of their workforce, unlocking hidden talent and maximising the performance of the organisation.
This two and a half day programme has been designed to give managers and leaders an opportunity to explore the impact of their leadership on their organisation and to develop the behaviours and strategies that will encourage and sustain an engaged and committed workforce.
This programme will provide leaders and managers with the opportunity to:
• Understand their impact as a leader through increased self-awareness
• Increase their insight and skills in managing self and others (Emotional Intelligence)
• Develop their ability to create a shared vision of the purpose and future direction of their organisation and to translate this vision into action
• Identify the key behavioural drivers of employee engagement and the link between these and business performance.
• Understand the leader’s role in creating an environment where others can realise their potential and perform at their best
This two and a half day programme will give senior managers and leaders an opportunity to explore the impact of their leadership on their organisation and to develop the behaviours and strategies that will encourage and sustain an engaged and committed workforce.
Impact’s leadership development programmes are designed to be exciting and challenging on both an intellectual and practical level. Theory is important in the development of leaders; however, people become more effective as they learn how to demonstrate leadership through their actions. Our programmes combine current thinking on leadership and employee engagement with focused projects and exercises where individuals are challenged to use their leadership abilities to deliver results. The mixture of theory inputs and practical exercises is connected by continuous review, discussion and feedback.
The final design of the programme will be flexed to the specific needs of the participants. As always, we will work in partnership to design the best solution we possibly can. There will be opportunities to engage in adventure and journeys, live business projects, meaningful dialogue and a Community Action Project. There will be the chance to debate models of leadership, to receive coaching and support from your fellow participants and to tap into the expertise of a variety of Impact consultants and specialists.
Each activity becomes a lens through which to examine leadership as it happens and to frame feedback. Our reviews will identify and discuss the behaviours that are significant in dialogue, decision-making, and leadership.
You will leave the programme exhausted and inspired. Your self-awareness will be heightened and your capacity for leadership improved. Your increased insight will support an approach to leadership that is practical, useful, accessible and innovative.

"If you get a chance to work with Impact, take it"
Lead Consultant / Manager, BT
"I found the programme hugely rewarding - both intellectually and emotionally. I learnt a lot about my own leadership style as well as how other people have different styles and the effect this can have on a group of people. The structure of the programme created real learning opportunities in a variety of settings and I found the community project particularly inspiring in terms of meaning and value in a leadership context.
I found the Impact team very motivating and caring - with a genuine interest in people and a passion for helping them to develop. The responsibility for the learning is yours and yours alone but the Impact team are there to support and guide you at the right moments.
I can honestly say that attending the programme has continued to have a positive effect on how I approach situations that call for acts of leadership and helped me to find the courage to act"
