LEADlight is a six-month programme for ‘middle leaders’ – those managers below the Board and senior management team – to help them to develop their skills and awareness; to improve their performance and get better results from their teams; and to prepare themselves for senior management responsibilities.

Participants work together through five main elements including workshops, think tanks, action learning, a work-based project and, as a final outcome, a presentation to a leadership panel from the participating businesses.

  • LEADlight changed my thinking completely. I now have a greater understanding of the business and have increased my self-confidence. I thoroughly recommend this course for middle managers or for individuals about to embark on a management role.

  • LEADlight has provided me with a new set of skills to pull from which have already proved invaluable. I feel that I can truly add value to the business from what I have learnt and get the very best from my team.

  • Through LEADlight I have seen my direct report, Jamie, motivated by the exposure to other businesses. He has become enthused by this experience and has already gained a much better insight into the impact decisions can have on the wider business. It has also enhanced my discussions with him because he is able to make links with his own experiences rather than just accepting what I am telling him.
