This course is a game changer. - John Utting, Quality Manager, Rodford Engineering Ltd

Lead, manage and motivate people for better performance

This is a specialist 7-day programme delivered across a 14 week period. It is aimed at team leaders, supervisors and managers who have direct responsibility for frontline operational teams, and all participants complete an in-company improvement project to assist with the learning process and to deliver tangible improvements to the business.


I think what separated this course from other management/leadership courses, was the parallel improvment project that we worked towards. It gave us all a target to work to, and achieve a result, which I know for sure I wouldn't have met without the regular course catch-up. It put an emphasis on the end date and this expecially helped me to achieve my results. - Warren Large, General Manager, PC Comms Ltd

Participants will also:

  • Assess their own management behavioural style to understand how they can use their personal approach to become a more effective leader

  • Develop their personal leadership skills and capability through improving, and putting into practice, their understanding of workplace behaviours, leadership models and styles, utilising feedback, time management, leading change, handling conflict, team working, motivating people, decision making, and influencing

  • Learn and put into practice technical skills that will enable them to deliver operational improvements, add value, reduce unprofitable activity, solve problems methodically, map processes, manage performance, and present and communicate coherently

  • Benefit from coaching to support the implementation of the in-company improvement project and leadership skills

The programme concludes with a presentation event to which senior leaders in the participants' organisations are invited. Each participant will present their in-company project findings and personal development outcomes, detailing the improvements this will enable them to make to the business.

The Leadership and Business Development course run by Tony was excellent. Two of my team have now successfully completed the programme. What has been most impressive is the way in which Tony facilitated the transfer of the lessons taught back into our business and the businesses of the other attendees. Both of our team showed growth in their leadership capability and through a work related project demonstrated a measurable level of continous improvement within their departments. I would have no hestitation in recommending Tony to any business for leadership training, coaching and business improvement facilitation. - David Purcell, Operations Manager, Vapormatt Ltd

I think this is the beginning of a new way of thinking and working (Tony may have created a few monsters) and although the course has come to an end (sob, sob) we will all grow from attending it. A massive thanks to Tony for almost keeping us in order, while running the best course I’ve ever attended. - Andy Redman, Quality & Systems Manager, ACC Silicones Europe (identified £47,000 cost savings, and looked to push Overall Equipment Effectiveness (O.E.E.) to 60% as a result of attending the Exelin Leadership Development & Business Improvement Programme)
