I work closely with the Professional Development Centre and, through them, can provide a complete leadership and management development programme. If you want to discuss possible ways I can help you, call me on 01749 676733, or email email@example.com
Leadership Assessment – Excel download
This is a simple leadership self-assessment, based on an original in my book Leading Teams (now out of print). It can be downloaded and copied to provide individuals with a chance to assess their performance along eight key areas of leadership. If they wish they can ask team members and their managers to complete it as well (although it doesn’t aggregate their feedback – perhaps in the next iteration). The results are printed as a report.
Instructions in how to use it appear on the first worksheet.

For seven years I was Head of Research at the Institute of Leadership & Management, after some fifteen years of undertaking research projects for a variety of clients. I can undertake small scale research projects (both qualitative and quantitative), undertake desk research (exploring existing research and data sources) or just advise you on your research needs. I am happy to discuss your project and see how I can help you. Contact me by email email@example.com or by ‘phone 01749 676733 to discuss your requirements.
Training and events
Looking for a keynote speaker or someone to chair your training event? Want to run a training session for employees on key leadership and management topics? Looking for advice on how best to construct a leadership & management development programme? I am always happy to help. I have spoken at events recently on a number of topics, particularly those in which I have undertaken some original research, including:
- Trust – What it is, why it matters and how to build it
- Ethical leadership – Why ethical practice affects leadership effectiveness and organisational performance
- Emotional intelligence – How emotions shape our thinking and relationships, and how to better recognise and manage your own and others’ emotional states
