Leadership Development

Our Leadership Development Design services assist clients to ensure that their initiatives in this area contribute inordinately to their competitive advantage.

Coombes Business Coaching focuses on using creativity and innovation balanced with evaluation disciplines to drive the company ethos through leadership behaviour.  Innovation and common sense are applied to projects of any size which makes our approach particularly appropriate to commercially challenging times.

How we deliver

We advocate spending company resources on consistent and evolving approaches to learning and development which prioritise behaviour change, talent attraction and retention rather than high profile events which deliver no lasting impact.

This may involve the use of recognised learning products (such as business school courses) but is more likely to identify and efficiently develop bespoke offerings which will complement efforts to differentiate the clients business.

Projects in this area will often include a review of existing learning initiatives. Building on what exists is most often preferred to beginning again. This will often deliver value for money already spent, maintain engagement of those already contributing, whilst supporting the drive in a new direction.

Projects in this space can range from a single facilitation meeting or training-provider sourcing task, to a major survey process followed by root and branch re-framing of the learning and development approach of the company.
