One-to-one leadership programmesLeadership communications

Our tailored leadership communication programmes are for executives determined to get to the next level in their interactions with peers, leadership team members, clients and their team.

Programmes begin with an in-depth meeting to clarify priorities and agree a timeline, with additional input from managers. Sessions are intense and involve plenty of rehearsal and feedback for upcoming communication challenges. They are interspersed with email and telephone consultation. 

Here is a sample of typical topics covered:

  • Mapping your key internal and external counterparties

  • Planning how to engage your stakeholders
  • Managing perceptions of you and how to manage them

  • Defining and articulating department/team goals

  • Holding team members to account

  • Developing influential messages
  • Rehearsing challenging leadership conversations

  • Building executive presence
  • Board/Exco presentations

  • Preparing to speak on a bigger stage
  • Performance reviews

  • Crucial client conversations

Our approach


All our small group workshops and one to one sessions are structured with rigour, but low on theory and designed to engage sceptical participants.

Our sessions are fast-paced and challenging, with extensive use of video rehearsal and feedback. Participants will learn to distil and disseminate their key ideas using our proprietary message development tool.

We adapt the sessions according to the ability and requirements of the executives – and according to specific upcoming communication challenges, which we can plan for in the pre-session call.
