Leadership Development

Creating a positive workplace culture.

 

“IDG’s flexibility, imagination and interpretation of our business issues and processes stimulate managers to make the most of all resources they have at their disposal and their guidance has been essential.” 

Linda Willows, Head of Legal and Business Management, Brother UK Ltd.

 

Leaders and managers play a crucial part in your organisation by definition – they're the ones that lead your business forward and manage the people that will help you to achieve your organisation’s ambitions. 

They're pivotal in creating a happy, healthy and sustainable culture as they are tasked with supporting your wider team to achieve. You need to bring out the very best in them, to bring out the best in your people. 

As leaders, managers, coaches and role models they play a vital role in influencing engagement levels, workplace wellbeing and in turn, overall business performance. But they need to also feel supported themselves - given the opportunity of ongoing leadership development to achieve their best too. 

According to the CMI, ineffective management could be costing UK businesses more than £19bn a year in lost working hours. Poor management is also thought to currently cost our economy £84bn every year, severely affecting UK productivity and leaving Britain lagging behind when it comes to people skills. 

Add that four out of five leaders and managers in the UK are ‘accidental' with only one in five companies investing in leadership development and that is a lot of opportunity lost. 

From shaping a clear vision and purpose and living and breathing your company values, to embracing supportive management approaches and promoting health and wellbeing in the workplace, effective leadership feeds a number of key high performance workplace issues.
