"Leadership training is usually delivered by professional trainers who have an understanding of the ‘theory of management’ but have never led a team. We are practitioners. We’ve been there, led people in challenging environments, made the mistakes and learnt from them. Using a deep understanding of the levers that drive performance, we apply a rigorous and scientifically backed approach to learning and the development of new skills."
