Leadership is arguably one of the hardest things in training to define and in business to get right. The ITD approach to leadership training is adapted to suit your needs. Areas we often find useful exploring are; what is leadership?; the individuals natural approach to leadership; using a psychometric test to give a reflective view on your people’s approach to leadership; looking at the difference between leadership and management; the impact of leading rather than managing issues and challenges; understanding your team’s / organisations culture; creating the right culture

We design programmes based on the needs of your business and the participants, which may require a blend of training input and coaching follow up.

Leadership training can include the latest thinking on distributive leadership, complexity science and primal leadership as well as more established methodologies for handling different leadership situations and challenges.

Our consultants have a wide experience of working with senior managers in our leadership training in uk and in many countries worlwide.

Leadership can be defined as the behaviours, attitudes and skills required for creating and sustaining the right atmosphere or culture, in your part or for the entire organisation.

What is meant by ‘right’?

This depends on the organisation, but we can say that it is likely to include a place where people;

  • feel valued
  • are listened to
  • know where the organisation is going
  • understand how they contribute to the organisation’s direction
  • know how they can contribute to the culture
  • look forward to going to work


Leadership is also about taking a new direction, the first to try, to demonstrate and to succeed in this new way.


Leadership can be taken by anyone in an organisation. The lowest paid person can take leadership for helping to create a positive mood in the business by demonstrating positivity themselves. Everyone might be said to have a responsibility for leadership in an organisation but the degree of responsibility increases as we move up the organisation.


An organisation and its constituent parts have a culture or atmosphere. That culture will either just happen or it will be lead by individuals. The responsibility of the Directors and Managers is to guide the culture and ensure it is what they want it to be.


It can be said that an organisation only has a strategy if the people within it can say what it is and how they contribute to it.


Leadership only exits of the leaders demonstrate the behaviours, attitudes and skills required to support the culture of the organisation.


The difference between leadership and management is that where leadership is concerned with the culture of a team or organisation, management is concerned with the more detailed behaviours of the members of that team. Both have an impact on performance and results.
