Course overview

We use behavioural profiling tools to personalise our leadership and management training course for each delegate. This means that each delegate can be individually assessed prior to the course and receive appropriate feedback to ensure that they are aware of their own leadership style and be able to adapt it to the needs of the group.

Since the best leaders are usually great communicators, our Leadership and Management Styles programmes focus on analysing and developing your communication style and how to adapt this style when managing any team.

Engaging with groups or on a one-to-one basis is an important skill for an effective leader and therefore a core area of our leadership training. If you are running an organisation or a team of people then our leadership training programmes can help develop your own leadership style to get more from your team.

Delegates will learn about the different types of communication style and the importance of developing the skill of versatility. These skills are embedded on an individual basis by using the results and feedback from the pre-course profiling questionnaire.

Course objectives

We designed the Leadership and Management Styles programme to provide a benchmark for leaders of teams to be more than ‘reactors to situations’ and instead be able to influence the behaviour, beliefs and feelings of other group members towards a desired outcome.

There are many different styles of an effective leader and the objective of this course is to recognise which styles are most effective and which are not.

  • Recognise your own leadership styles
  • Understand how your leadership style is seen by your team
  • Recognise the preferred communication style of others
  • Learn the importance of versatility to communication style
  • Recognising your own level of versatility
  • Learn how to improve your versatility

Leadership and Management Styles – course benefits

The latest research from experts such as Marcus Buckingham and Simon Sinek demonstrates that effective leadership may well be the key business differentiator between high-performing organisations and their lower-performing counterparts, yet many organisations see leadership training as a cost and not a value-add.

Our course will help delegates to develop their own leadership style to enable them to get more from their team and improve business performance.

The standard course encompasses four different modules, all designed to demonstrate how powerful the deployment of effective leadership skills can be and how damaging a weak or divisive leader can be.

By the end of the course, each delegate should:

  • Understand how an effective leader behaves;
  • Have improved self-awareness;
  • Be able to recognise the different types of Social Style of different people
  • Have improved awareness of the needs of each individual in the team;
  • Understand individual versatility;
  • Have learned techniques for improving versatility when dealing with others;
  • Communicating more effectively; and
  • Understand the importance of integrity to strong leadership

Who is this course suitable for?

This leadership training course is perfect for anyone who has responsibility for leading or managing a team, regardless of seniority. It is also suitable for supervisory staff and for new starters in man-management.

Sales Management

Our Sales Management training course is designed for both those newly promoted in to sales management or more experienced sales managers who have not received any formal training for their role. The course is normally run at three locations around the UK (London, Birmingham and Manchester) but can also be run at your business premises.

The Sales Management training course focuses on giving delegates the opportunity to review their management style and look in-depth at how they spend their time. Consideration is given to understanding which tasks produce the biggest gains for their businesses and therefore, which tasks should be prioritised.

This is achieved using discussion and small group working. Delegates are encouraged to raise any particular issues they have for discussion with a view to helping them to find practical solutions.

Presentation Skills

Our Presentation Skills training course is designed for anyone with responsibility for delivering a presentation to a large or small group of people. Delegates typically come from a wide range of business disciplines including sales, marketing, product design and finance.

The course is normally run at three locations around the UK (London, Birmingham and Manchester) but can also be run at your business premises.

The Presentation Skills training course is highly practical and interactive and focuses on giving delegates the opportunity to build an attractive presentation that meets their own particular aims and deliver it to an audience, all in a ‘safe environment.

Emphasis is placed on techniques for removing as much ‘fear’ as possible from the process of presenting and public speaking.

The course employs video recording which is used to provide feedback to each individual which helps to speed-up the learning process.

Advanced Communication Skills

Our Advanced Communication Skills training course is a practical one-day course designed to help business people improve their effectiveness through enhanced communication skills.

The course uses the Social Style profiling tool from the TRACOM Group which is one of the most widely-used profiling tools of its kind in the world. This creates a new way of looking at people by focusing on their observable behaviour in order to develop an effective influencing strategy. Used by a wide range of large organisations and professional consultancies it will change the way that your team interact with their internal staff or external customers.

We run these advanced sales training courses at venues across the UK. We can also hold them at your offices, if required. We can even tailor the course content to meet your specific needs.


We run our training programmes throughout the UK and occasionally overseas. Our standard public ‘open’ courses are run in major UK cities including LondonBirminghamManchesterLeedsNottingham, and Edinburgh.

We normally restrict our courses to 12 delegates as this allows for maximum individual attention and gives course delegates a better chance of achieving their objectives.
