We work with both large corporate organizations and SME’s developing the capability and confidence of leaders, in assessing your needs, we fully diagnose the current level of leadership, design and deliver programmes which centre on developing individual leaders who individuals would love to follow.
We do this through a number of methods, outdoor experiential learning, solution focus thinking, action learning sets, development of emotional intelligence, feedback and working with individual personality traits. Working with aha moment gives leaders the opportunity to develop a complete leadership tool kit allowing individuals to become confident and effective leaders in all circumstances.
Each programme is tailored to meet your needs of captured during the diagnosis phase, please note this is a sample agenda based on a specific client need.

Capturing the learning from the previous day and anticipating the challenge to come
Building on the previous day, teams will be given fun, challenging projects which require them to demonstrate leadership and work effectively as a team to achieve results. The project will demand that the team quickly sets direction, drives performance and inspires each other to achieve success. They will need to coordinate their effort to overcome a series of personal and team challenges
Focusing on individual contributions to team success
Participants work in small groups to offer support and challenge on identifying actions to take forward, story creation of who participants are as leaders
Fran takes you outside of your comfort zone and challenges you yo look at things very differently to how you would normally operate and think. By working with my team as well she has set their expectations on my own role as a leader that has helped provide me with further challenge on what they need of me.
Got me singing again for the first time in many years!
The chemical manufacturing world is a technical one and is one were rules rule (even more so in the Pharma world). Fran showed the SLT that we don’t have to run the site in a traditional, techy, “businessy” kind of way all the time. She helped the SLT to loosen up a bit and think of approaches that are a little more expressive, fun, human and engaging.
Given that I am that rare Myers Briggs mix of E, N, F & P (just like Fran) I warmed to this approach. Additionally, she provided honest feedback along the way of how the SLT were working together and with the site in general. This allowed the SLT to reflect on this and improve.
It has brought us a fresh perspective on SLT engagement with the wider site and taken team working to a new level.
Some of the exercises have helped bring the team closer together and challenge each other. Still plenty to be done, but the journey has started.
Work on Myers Briggs was good. It showed that a workforce is made up of different "types" all of which have their place. How to work with other 'types' was useful.
Fran knows a lot about psychological models and theory and shares this in a simple to understand and non-preachy way.
