The Leadership Challenge

Our Off-the-Peg 4 day leadership training programme covers many of the most commonly required components of leadership.

We have worked with leaders and organisations all over the world to create transformational change in the way leaders operate and execute to achieve exponentially demanding results.

So why is improving your organisation’s leadership skills important? Organisations measured as having good leadership throughout the organisation outperform those measured to have poor leadership by 12x in financial terms. Employees with good leadership are 6x more committed to their work and level of performance compared to those measured with poor leadership.

Are the leaders throughout your organisation capable, focused, motivated and getting the most out of the people they lead? Can you afford them not to be?

What is the Leadership Challenge?

The programme has been designed to energise, inspire and motivate your leaders to step up and become outstanding. We have utilised the practices and models from the world’s most prominent leaders and thinkers to create the Leadership Challenge.

Typically it consists of a 2 x 2 day modular programme – although many other formats are applicable depending on needs and level of investment.

I would encourage any manager who wishes to develop/update on their existing skills, or those managers that would like to gain new skills to participate in one of the numerous training courses run by Fuel Learning.

The course leaders have up to date working and on the job knowledge and use a presentation that openly encourages participation and enjoyment, although at times you will have to put your thinking caps on as not all tasks are paper exercises!!

Their courses are well structured and all material excellently presented, easy to understand and follow.

I have attended many managerial courses during my 20 years in the business and found Fuel Learning deliver the best. As a manager for Norbert Dentressangle - Marks and Spencer, Hardwick, Warrington, we are encourage to put into practice what we learn and I have certainly done this thanks to Fuel Learning.
