“I would suggest that all Hofs and Dofs [Head /Director of Function] consider investing in this. Key benefits are clarity of thought, building of productive relationships, gaining different perspectives”
Coaching: We offer executive coaching and mentoring programmes to support leaders & teams identify and achieve their goals, excel in their roles while maintaining their wellbeing in high pressure environments.
Consultancy: With two decades of experience of designing and leading workshops and events, we provide bespoke services ranging from keynote presentations to working closely with leaders and teams to deliver ways of working that enhance organisations’ performance, wellbeing and alignment with their core values.
Mindful Awareness: the leadership skills catalyst
Several of the services and programmes we offer take a new approach by incorporating mindfulness as a foundational tool. Rather than traditional leadership training which approaches a skill on the surface level (often called ‘horizontal’ training, mindfulness works at a deeper level (often called ‘vertical’ training), simultaneously improving multiple skill sets, whilst improving wellbeing and overall functioning.
Stay present to what matters by training your ability to choose how and where you focus.
“Very helpful to be able to recognise thoughts for what they are and that they can be effectively put to one side to concentrate on the job in hand”
Make better decisions by developing awareness of thoughts and biases, and by exercising choice
“Focusing upon specific behaviours that I want to display in defined situations has begun to help me to make considered decisions under pressure.”
Improve awareness of self and others in order to listen more effectively, be more inclusive, connect and gain trust.
“My team commented that I seem different in my approach. Having a different mindset and being kinder”
Train your ability to behave skilfully in challenging situations, responding not reacting.
“Techniques for being with challenge have helped me to feel I am contributing more effectively in high profile Committee meetings”
Testimonials are from participants who have taken part in the LxLeaders Core Programme for Leaders. Following a initial programme commissioned by Leeds Building Society, 100% of those senior leader participants felt the programme impacted their leadership and it was a valuable use of their time. Based on the evidence and excellent outcomes of that initial programme, LBS ordered subsequent 3 programmes so that more leaders could benefit from this programme.
Developed and delivered by leaders
As senior leaders we understand the skills your leaders need and the challenges they face. We know the importance of training that is engaging, down-to-earth and immediately applicable to the real-world challenges leaders face.
We’ve seen the transformation mindfulness, coaching and our tools can bring to leaders, teams and organisations and we’re passionate about creating this change at the highest levels of organisations for the most impact.
