Leadership Development programme

If you want to inspire others and improve business performance, join one of our two Leadership Development programmes.

Whether you’re a new leader or have years of experience, our future-proof workshops are designed to increase your team’s success, resilience and wellbeing at work.

About the programme

Our programme offers a unique approach to leadership development. It encourages you to build on your own capability and confidence.

It builds values-based leadership skills with an emphasis on fair and innovative workplace practices and inclusive economic growth. This approach is also rewarded by improvements in innovation and productivity.

You’ll learn to:

  • Identify and integrate organisational values into your workplace culture
  • Develop a more successful business, which is also a fair place to work
  • Drive engagement, innovation and productivity
  • Increase resilience, agility and the ability to drive faster change
  • Develop strategic decision making

Programme options

There are two programmes to chose from, depending on which stage you're at in your career: Growth Leadership and Essential Leadership.

About the Essential Leadership programme

This programme offers a detailed introduction to leadership development. It encourages you to unlock your potential as a leader by developing your understanding of leadership principles.
As such, it’s an ideal opportunity for new or potential leaders, or those whose businesses are at an early stage of growth.


The programme is delivered over three months, through the following stages:

  • Pre-programme onboarding — during this first stage diagnostics, including a 360, will be undertaken with each participant. The diagnostic results will be discussed and actions to take forward will be identified and agreed.
  • Learning phase — these facilitated sessions will allow like-minded individuals to come together to learn, experience, support, challenge, and inspire each other.
  • Post-programme support and implementation — this stage takes the form of a half-day session dedicated to forward action planning. With your sponsor, you'll review what you've learned, track your progress to date, and create an action plan with next steps.
  • Coaching — finally, you will have four hours of coaching with a qualified coach to further develop you as a leader. The focus of this session can be on either business or personal development.

What’s involved

The programme will focus on the following:

  • Understanding the roles and responsibilities of a leader
  • Developing your self-awareness and impact as a leader
  • Understanding how implementing fair work in the organisation can have a positive impact on your people and business performance
  • Developing your ability to encourage employee voice
  • Learning how to create a culture where leaders don't always have the answers and employees make decisions

This programme is subsidised by Scottish Enterprise.

The price for each participant is £700 plus VAT.
