The Best leadership training 

Why do we think our course is the best leadership training course in the UK

The best leadership training course in the UK - Firstly the leadership skills training course is either a one day training session or (even better) part of the 12 month Acton Focused Leadership and Management Program that comes with the reflective logbook, which is such a power tool and keeps managers and team leaders accountable for achieving their part of the vision.  

There are two options with the 12-month Acton Focused Leadership and Management Program. You can either buy the license and deliver the program yourself (we offer a two day train the trainer session as part of the license and a support package) or one of our leadership and management specialists can deliver it for your team.  

Another reason we why we think it’s the best is that it has been written and developed by successful leaders. The information is from bloody nose experience rather than ivory tower philosophy!

The Program

It really is the best leadership training program around. The program consists of 12 training courses (one per month). There are lots of activities within each session that create goals for the learners to achieve when they return to work. They are designed to promote action and because they are monthly the managers and team leaders are held accountable to the tutor and their peers for achieving them. Here’s a link for further information.

The Reflective Logbook

The Leadership and management reflective logbook is such a powerful tool for the learners. They will learn that one of the five pillars of emotional intelligence (EI) is self-awareness and reflection is such an important part of this. The logbook can also be used during the manager’s one to one and appraisal to prove forward momentum and personal development.

What Issues the Program Resolves

Learners who have sat the program have produced amazing results. They’ve learnt:

  • To change their management style to suit the person they are managing rather than expect the person they are managing to change themselves to suit the manager 
  • To manage their time, energy and interruptions. One manageress saved 2 hours per day! By managing her time and delegating effectively
  •  To communicate more effectively by understanding DISC psychometric testing
  • To recruit the best fit into the right position based on capability and the core values
  • To manage changes effectively using a 5-stage goal orientated change management system
  • To use performance improvement plans as a positive development tool
  • To manage conflict effectively by recognising needs and not just brushing them under the carpet and hope they go away
  • To deliver effective coaching sessions (by actively listening) and promoting action
  • To hold meetings that matter and implement a purposeful appraisal system
  • To take affirmative action and promote growth

Who We Are?

Our company works with small, medium and large companies and organisations throughout the UK and mainland Europe. The goal is to help them to help themselves – not just to deliver a training course and then leave them to it. 

We leave them with actions to move themselves, their team and the business forward.

We aim to leave your team more confident and motivated to put the information they have learned to work for them, resulting in a more engaged and effective team member.

We do this by delivering sessions that fit with your people and organisation in a language they understand. The sessions are fun, very active and team focused.
