The Leadership Programme was conducted at the company’s Yatton site near Bristol. It began with a personal assessment of the staff’s leadership behaviours and one-to-one feedback sessions to identify areas for each individual’s personal development throughout the programme.
The training modules ranged from operational improvement techniques to leadership and management tools encompassing: understanding the behaviours of others, managing change, effective feedback, team working, motivation and conflict handling.
Each delegate managed a project within their own work area to implement a tangible improvement for the business but also to create a change management scenario where they applied and practised their learning from the programme.
The Programme culminated with each delegate giving a presentation to the senior management team of Oxford Instruments on their project outcomes and their personal development journey.
