Do you know what motivates you to succeed?

Effective relationships are critical for business success. In all our programmes and development activities we use the Strength Deployment Inventory (SDI), which is a validated self-assessment tool that helps people understand their motives, values and what is important to them when relating with others.

It plays off people’s basic need to better understand themselves and others, and that understanding allows them to lead with clarity and empathy, build stronger teams, and more effectively navigate conflict, therefore enabling attendees to improve their business and personal relationships by helping them to understand how other people see things and apply this awareness to their interactions with others.

Due to high popularity, we have added an extra date on our SDI (Strength Deployment Inventory) Personal Development Workshop. Book you place on 22nd August now, to avoid disappointment: /personal-development-workshop/

New Landscape, New Leadership

The educational landscape is rapidly changing, for many there have already been seismic shifts, for everyone there will be major challenges ahead and even those ‘early starters’ who are currently ahead of the curve will have much more to deal with.   School leadership demands are evolving in the rapidly changing landscape of state education in England. If it is to remain successful it’s worth taking a long hard look at leadership training and support as we know it and start making some decisions.


We would like to invite you to our latest event for leaders in education event “New Landscape, New Leadership”, which will be held at our training academy in Stretton on 27th November. Please see event flyer for details.


Places are limited, to secure your space call the office today on 01925 730 209.


Supporting School Leadership in the 21st Century

Many of the key challenges for leaders in education from 2016 will continue into 2017: reduced funding, recruitment and retention issues, workload and well-being, further changes to examinations and accountability measures.  The challenge for school leaders is getting ever greater and the resources are growing ever tighter.

Ensuring there is a sustainable pipeline of leadership talent at all levels has become an increasingly important focus for heads, CEOs, boards and HR Directors in education, where sustained high performance and growth are strategic priorities.

Just as the quality of an education cannot exceed the quality of its teachers, education providers cannot sustain impact or grow faster than the quality of its leadership pipeline.  By investing early in spotting talent, developing it and planning succession, you can enable greater impact in the long run.

Join me and industry expert Dave Atkin at The 21st Century Leadership Company’s workshop “Supporting School Leadership in the 21st Century” on 30th March at our new training facility in Warrington, where you will get to discuss this important topic with experts and other influential leaders in education.

Neurodiversity Workshop 7th April 2016

We would like to invite you to our seminar ‘Neurodiversity in the Workplace’ on Wednesday 27th January 2016. This is taking place ar our Life, Leadership & Engagement Academy as part of a programme of open events that address leadership challenges for 2016.


What Is Neurodiversity?

Neurodiversity is a concept where neurological differences are to be recognised and respected as any other human variation. These differences can include those labelled with Dyspraxia, Dyslexia, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Dyscalculia, Autistic Spectrum, Tourette Syndrome and others.

Why Is Neurodiversity Important?

Embracing & supporting neurodiverse individuals appropriately improes productivity, enhances workplace culture and impacts on well-being.

Neurodiverse individuals often have key strengths and when they gain self-awareness and confidence, many become a real asset to their employing organisation.

Lack of awareness of neurodiverse conditions and lack of appropriate support for these individuals has a hidden cost to the business.

Our Facilitator

Cheryl Winter is a highly accomplished coach and advocate of maximising the strengths of neurological diversity in the workplace. Her work is accredited by the Institute of Leadership and Management.


1) Understanding the spectrum of Neurodiversity strengths
2) Exploration of common workplace challenges
3) Identification of practical strategies which can be implemented into leadership coaching.
