Closing Leadership Skills Gaps

Close the gap between those at the top and the people below

Are your leaders, growing leaders, for your organisation to grow? Are they effective, adaptable and capable of empowering the future success of their teams and the company? Over recent years and since the pandemic, there has been less investment in leadership development, with capability gaps appearing. A CareerBuilder survey reports more than 26% of managers said they weren’t ready to become a leader, when they started leading others. 58% said that they didn’t receive any training at all. Only 28% of business executives believe they are effective at developing leaders*. Definitions of leadership have changed over the years, more than 80% of organisations today operate in flatter, dynamic structures where many technical experts find themselves in leadership positions without relevant support.

Fast-tracking the skills of existing and emerging talent is critical to business success. We believe most people are capable of activating at least 30% more performance and potential in themselves and others by shifting mindsets and utilising practical skills and tools to deliver real results.

Invest in the power skills to accelerate leadership impact.

  • Self-Aware Leadership – Emotional Intelligence, Evolving Your Style
  • Transformational Leadership
  • Effective Communication, Interpersonal Effectiveness and Relationship Building
  • Coaching as Part of Your Leadership Style
  • Leading Performance and People Management
  • Leading High Performing Teams
  • Motivating Yourself and Others, Aligning Around Purpose, Creating a Thriving Culture
  • Leading with Influence and Impact
  • Strategic Thinking, Problem Solving and Decision Making
  • Leading and Driving Change

Pragmatic development in these areas doesn’t end there. These skills will filter down the organisation from the leaders to those who work for them.

Begin closing leadership skills gaps by levelling up these power skills, providing leaders and managers with these practical, tangible, powerful day-to-day skills. This will not only help create a more nourishing team culture but also level up the leadership skills within all layers of the organisation.

Add pragmatic and effective skills to your leadership toolkit.

Having a significant gap between your leadership team and the capability of managers and colleagues below them is not uncommon. Closing that gap by building confidence, competence and the right skills, will strengthen your organisation. We help you enhance the transformational leadership capability and coaching skills of your existing leaders; fast-track your high-potential talent to take on future leadership roles and/or develop your people to take on first line-management roles smarter, better and faster.
