Leadership Workshops with a Twist - Jumping the Leadership Gap

Working together with Mark Ellis and CultureTransform

Join us for a novel approach to a workshop focused on your specific needs.

With our decades of combined experience working as facilitators, trainers, mentors and more we have identified an endless number of techniques that can be used to help with our leadership challenges. Often the same approaches can be valuable for very different situations. Seeing these connections has a great impact in helping us find our own solutions proactively rather than reactively.

Rather than attending a workshop with a defined agenda we aim to adjust the tools and techniques we share depending upon the interests and needs of the participants. We don’t expect you to share the details of your challenges with a group of strangers if you don’t want to. Rather by working with themes and concepts we explore different approaches you can use both in real time and in the future.

Uniquely, whilst these are morning workshops we provide lunch AND a free afternoon for anyone who has the time and inspiration to continue working with us. We will move from the general to the specific as the day progresses.

Leadership gaps you may be facing and we can work on together include;

  • The functional gap – how to work with colleagues from other departments
  • The engagement gap – how to engage your team or your workforce
  • The cultural gap – how to understand and change culture
  • The conflict gap – how to manage personal, departmental or organisational conflict
  • The promotion gap – how to understand your gap and bridge it

Maximum participants 12

Join us for a whole new way to create effective change and Jump that Gap
