Evolving the quality of leadership in organisations can be a challenge and issues around leadership can be so long-lasting that they become engrained in the organisation’s culture. Training programmes can be time-consuming and complex to design and organise alongside other initiatives. This means HR, L&D and People teams can find themselves stretched too thin and can feel frustrated at the limited return on investment that some leadership development interventions seem to have.
Our Leadership Development solutions offer maximum impact for minimum investment by focusing on developing the foundational emotional intelligence leaders need across three core areas: Leading Self, Leading Others and Leading the Organisation. With a “strengths” focus as the backbone of our leadership development programmes, we help leaders to unlock their own and others’ rich potential for peak performance and flourishing and thriving at work.
We know that time is precious, so we have designed our programmes in bitesize learning modules, which are flexible and easy to implement alongside other initiatives. Underpinned by the latest research in Positive Psychology, we help Leaders tune into and amplify the best of themselves and the best of the people around them rather than focusing on the negatives.

Helen, a leader at a large UK Insurer, had acquired a new, highly experienced team and felt apprehensive about joining 100 colleagues on a strengths based leadership development programme.
The Bailey & French approach offered core principles that could be applied to the organisation, resulting in better collaboration, increased self-awareness and awareness of others, plus much more.
