Our Approach

All of our leadership development interventions focus on managing self, as well as managing others, because we fundamentally believe if a leader can’t manage themself well, it’s almost impossible to manage others. Many of them are linked into our thinking around the five roles that leaders need to adopt to be successful. Read more about the five roles here or by grabbing a copy of Jane’s book, The Culture Builders: Leadership Strategies for Employee Performance.

Our programmes, whether face to face or virtual, incorporate a mix of story sharing and best practice, tools and inspiration – always highly practical but grounded in academic rigour and research. Delivered by our team and our extended faculty of inspirational high performers and supported with a rich mix of multimedia materials - what we deliver is nothing less than leading edge.

Our work: Global, virtual leadership development

The Culture Builders delivered a six month leadership development programme for a global leadership team for a leading entertainment company. The objectives were to increase collaboration, build resilience and upskill leaders around how they engaged and motivated their teams, ahead of a big period of change.

With geographies a challenge, the programme was designed to be 90 per cent virtual with one face to face group meeting towards the end. Incorporating live online workshops, interim team challenges, coaching pairs and weekly tips and inspiration between sessions, a dynamic and modular approach allowed time to embed learning and experiment with tools and behaviour change in-between each one. We met our goals, the team was transformed and the change was lasting.

Leader profiling

We offer a range of different profiling options for individuals, teams and organisations including emotional intelligence profiling (EIP3), Myers Briggs personality profiling and our very own The Culture Builders profiling tool. The only profiling system that specifically details how individual managers and leaders engage others, it measures five core areas that are needed to create empowered, motivated teams who deliver their ‘all’ for their organisation and thus drive performance.

Whether it’s a personal desire to learn where you should place your effort in development, team profiling for your top team or a need to find the right person for a key role, we can support. With two British Psychological Society members on the team, we can apply rigour to any process, and with a wealth of business experience we can bring in the practical ‘what next’ that is often missing from assessment and profiling work.:
