Leadership Training Programmes

Each leadership training programme is highly applicable and practical, with a focus on the real issues leaders face on a daily basis, rather than getting bogged down in theory and mumbo jumbo. Here at Fuel Learning we have designed and facilitated training programmes for thousands of people at all levels of leadership, in diverse industries, in different continents.

Whatever your needs are, we will find a solution fit for you. Our programmes range from year-long modular learning through to one day practical intervention, all of these supported by group coaching or one to one.

In addition to designing and building leadership programmes that enable organisations to thrive, we also ensure many of them are accredited to a professional standard – such as a Diploma in Leadership and Management or Chartered Manager.

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.

Unlike many courses I have attended Dave's set up and delivery of the course material was a breath of fresh air. He kept the session interesting and recognised when the day needed to be energised. The group responded well and everyone took part in all of the session allowing for flowing information and more importantly some good learnings
