The Engaging Leaders course is run over 4 days and is designed so that each day builds on the
previous day’s learning. Maximum number of delegates per course is 15.
Delegates will be provided with time to capture their learning at the conclusion of each day, which
they will build into a full developmental action plan during the last session of the course.
The final day will begin by exploring the importance of leadership resilience. At the end of this
session the delegates will have a better understanding of the causes and impact of not being
resilient. They will also have explored a number of innovative approaches to help them to
manage their own levels of resilience.
The following session will explore the power of storytelling in delivering effective messages
and link to the academic research regarding neuroscience.
To conclude the final day, the delegates will spend time reflecting on their daily learning logs
and create an individual developmental action plan. It is proposed that these action plans will
be discussed with their line managers at their next one-to-one meeting.
Having explored the delegates coaching experience, the morning session will focus on the
necessary listening and communication skills required and will provide the delegates with a
number of innovative approaches/models for the delegates to explore.
The morning session will conclude with a series of exercises on how best to coach some of the
more challenging individual personality traits, which the delegates may face within their teams.
The delegates will then undertake a series of coaching sessions with their fellow delegates,
addressing some of the development areas identified within their individual Insights’ profiles.
The groups will be observed by our facilitators, who will provide feedback and support where
Day two will be delivered by our Insights Discovery practitioner who, through a series of
presentations, group discussions and innovative team exercises, will help the delegates to
develop a clear understanding of their strengths and over-played strengths, their individual
leadership style and the impact it may have on others. They will also explore how their individual
personality/leadership traits could be interpreted differently by other personality types.
During day one, the delegates will complete group exercises to explore both the positive and
negative attributes and behaviours of an engaging leader. To assist them in these exercises our
head facilitator, Glenn Tunstall, will present his case study ‘Trendy 2b Negative’. This is a fun and
inspiring case study of how Glenn led Kingston Police to become one of the highest performing
and most engaged policing commands in the country. The day will conclude with the delegates
agreeing a course definition for the leader they wish to be.
