Leadership development

Leadership development

We tailor leadership programmes focusing on personal leadership as well as leadership group development, where leadership and business development are two sides of the same coin. We do this through research-based processes and tools – adapted to modern leadership and the reality in which they need to be executed. 

Tailored leadership development programmes

Maximise your organisation’s execution power

At People & Performance, we see effective learning as a process that requires broad involvement from participants, their leaders and their employees. This involvement is a necessity to ensure that the new knowledge is embedded, whatever the goal of the learning is.

How we can help:

  • Through our own unique approach to the learning process: LEAP (Learn, Enable, Activate, Perform), we ensure that all participants are involved and are tailored to the individual company, focusing on optimising real-life challenges.

  • Focus on performance culture, where we define the behaviours that will ensure motivation and drive.

  • Developing teams with a focus on synergies, recognising diversity and accepting each other’s competencies and strengths as the basis for teamwork.

  • Tools to embed talent development in the company’s culture and strategy.

  • How you embrace diversity and inclusion at all levels of the organisation. We draw on knowledge and resources from all five of our business areas when advising you on how well-informed diversity and inclusion drives results.

We facilitate all aspects of leadership development, using research-based methods and processes to create a results-driven performance culture that maximises your power to execute.  

Create lasting behaviour change with LEAP

Through the LEAP learning process, we can optimise a process such as onboarding new employees, working with change processes, leadership development, sales training, etc. and maintain the participants in their learning when they return to everyday life. Together with a training programme that is specifically adapted to the individual company, we can optimise the training and achieve the best possible benefit from the programme.

What is leadership development?

Leadership development is related to exercising good leadership. In People & Performance, we understand the concept as characteristics that foster commitment, motivation, acceptance of diversity and collaboration. Leadership development should have the clear purpose that leadership should promote better performance of the leader himself and the employees who execute in daily life.

Ensuring effective execution that delivers results and being able to identify both the strengths and development potential of employees with the clear aim of enhancing team job satisfaction – in line with individual performance – is essential to the leadership role. In other words, it is about developing the employee through continuous learning while developing and delivering the organisation’s desired goals and strategy.

In the long run, leadership development should ensure that synergies are created between employee performance and the company’s business strategy objectives.

Leadership development is about raising awareness

For us, leadership development is about creating greater awareness of how you act and how your leadership works in practice. A leadership programme is very much about facilitating a space that provides insight into the individual – into their own strengths and weaknesses.

The leader must be aware of his or her own person, how he or she is perceived by others and what it means to be under the leadership of the leader. A successful programme should create the basis for concrete focus points in the daily work and increase the focus on how to improve leadership in the future.
