This high impact 12-month behaviour change programme delivers lifelong transformation for ambitious leaders who need to develop their personal power. Sponsoring organisations then benefit from having leaders with high self-belief who can positively influence others and deliver high performance in an increasingly complex and challenging environment.


Personal development outcomes are driven by the unique requirements of each individual delegate and the organisation that they work for, informed by a 360 degree review. In addition, every delegate will:

Develop self awareness, emotional intelligence and resilience


Build the knowledge, skills and confidence to take a strategic overview, be decisive and deliver sustainable change


Optimise individual and team performance


Transform your managers into leaders 

Two short residential modules enable delegates to escape to the beautiful Herefordshire countryside and invest the time and space needed to achieve lightbulb moments through experiential learning in a safe environment. These are bridged by four online workshops, which develop complimentary knowledge and skills. When woven together with the support of one-to-one coaching and triangular coaching (involving the delegate’s organisation sponsor), you have all the ingredients to positively transform the way you lead.

Being part of the process has not only had a positive impact on how I approach business but it has enhanced my approach to life. It has been a wonderful experience and one I would greatly recommend. The coaches of the Leadership Trust are inspirational and it has been a pleasure to work with them.

Her experience working within academia and the private and charitable sectors has led her to work within a diverse range of cultures. This, combined with extensive overseas work in both developing countries such as Malawi and Uganda as well as across Europe has strengthened her conviction that we are all capable of effective leadership and that, with skilful support and facilitated opportunities for personal growth, we are able to contribute much more to our organisations and to our life beyond our work.
