We help Diverging and Emerging Leaders to build a culture where everyone realises their full leadership potential by training them to step into their Inner and Sensing Leader, and Leading from Behind, Beside and in Front.

Creating Inner Leadership in your organisation

Having worked with businesses for many years supporting them on how to develop and grow their leadership talent, it struck us that there still is an assumption that leaders ‘have to be made’ rather than ‘leaders are everywhere’.

Our approach to Inner Leadership development is recognising everyone’s innate leadership capabilities and providing them with the tools to ‘be’ and ‘do’ leadership to be able to feel more empowered, motivated, inspired to ‘step up’ to being a leader and ‘step back’ from leadership over-control.

Our leadership training helps each role to operate more strategically and operationally by building their confidence, focus and understanding of the legacy they are creating through our 5 positions of leadership training, and our bitesize offerings.

The Being and Doing of Leadership is now a blended learning programme for you and your team. To find out more, take our 5 days of leadership Challenges giving you an insight into the 5 positions of leadership for both your Emerging and Diverging Leaders.

“For me it is more about my awareness of switching / morphing from one leader to another.  How to consider what type of leader is needed in certain situations or type of leader people need.” Kim Wilkinson, Drector

(Diverging Leader)

“It’s a very informative yet interactive programme that gets you thinking about things you’ve never thought of.  The amount of knowledge gained and tools to take away are beneficial.”
Emily Downing, Head Resourcing

(Emerging Leader)

“Carers Of East Lothian arranged with Kate to facilitate two team training days. From the initial contact, to the training day itself, everything was organised and planned extremely well. Kate took time to find out exactly what the needs of the organisation were, arranged a planning session with myself and then remained in contact by email and phone to iron out any issues before the day. When the day arrived we all had complete instructions, a course content and what to expect. Each session was completed on zoom but this didn’t cause any concern for Kate and we didn’t experience anything less than a first class training course.” Claire Spiden – Deputy CEO Carers Of East Lothian.

“Course for ‘rising stars’, people who are at the beginning of a leader road and for natural leaders who want to explore more about styles of leadership.”  Agata Dabrowski, Head of House Keeping, Apex Hotel

(Emerging Leader)

“Unlocking the leader that is within, take time to explore your own journey.  A unique experience.” Nicola McDonald, Family Food Service Operational Manager

(Diverging Leader)

“I took part in Kate’s 5 Day Challenge (Jan 2020) and personally I got a lot out of it. It truly brings to life the idea that everyone is a leader. There are natural positions of leadership which we all recognise but Kate made us think about different situations and how, if they are approached in a particular way, we can help bring out the best in ourself and the people we are ‘leading’. Already, I can see how what we learned and what Kate instilled in us can be utilised in upcoming challenges and where being able to dip into the toolkit appropriately will be a huge benefit.”  Mark, Business Data Analyst

(5 Day Leadership Challenge)

“Kate created a bespoke programme for our group, all about empowering staff to interact with others with confidence, looking at self awareness, communication, and self belief. The content was just what we needed, and was delivered in a friendly and relaxed manner making the attendees feel at ease, which allowed everyone to thrive and take on board the teaching. The group have really benefited from the material. Kate’s knowledge in this area ensured the programme was a success.”  Alyson Gray, HIT Scotland Scholarship Manager

(Empowering Future Leaders)

“Kate was brought on to provide leadership workshops near the start of Covid. We were changing the profile of our webinars from purely technical ones associated with your membership, to a more broad spectrum due to the ongoing situation at that time to provide them with more ‘life tools’. Kate’s workshops were well thought out, well delivered and well received by our members. I would highly recommend Kates work, this was echoed in feedback from our members who really appreciated the webinars.”  Raymond Bremner, Events and Marketing Coordinator, The Association for Project Safety

They will learn to become a Leader from Behind, Leader Beside, and Leader in Front.   Their final half-day will be bringing it all together, as they presentation their key learnings to fellow attendees along with invited colleagues, followed by a self-designed celebration.

“Me and Joanne since doing the course feel we communicate better with each other when exploring the ideas, we have for the nursery. We also feel able to help build up the confidence of our other team member.  We found the most helpful section the leading from beside as we both now work in the same room as each other and it helped us to better understand each other’s strengths and weaknesses and realise we have the same goals and reach them using different styles.”

“This training course has made me take a step back and look at how I lead my team.  I learned something new in each of the training sessions, and this led to me having a far greater awareness of supporting and developing people within my team.  As a result I am able to trust those around me more and effectively delegate work tasks.  The training has also made me look at my core values and improve my own self, and this has impacted on both my work and my personal life.”
