Not-for-profit, public sector and charity leadership training to enabling leaders to inspire and engage others

Leadership training for charities

This course is designed to increase your awareness as a leader and provide the tools you need to inspire and engage others. The course focusses on the unique challenges to public sector, non-profit and charity leadership. It is based around the Kouzes and Posner Leadership Practices Inventory, with an emphasis on the need to build long-term sustainability and achieve results.

All our public training is scheduled when enough demand is there, so please register your interest here, and we'll let you know as soon as a new date is set.
Yes, and also face to face. It's equally suitable for both options. For more information on the differences between online and face to face training, visit our Learning and Development page.
If you have 6 or more people to train it's worth getting in touch to discuss in-house options.

These include:
  • your choice of structure – as well as choosing dates to suit you, you can also decide whether to have the content delivered in full days, half-day sessions or bitesize sessions over separate days.
  • tailoring options – if you're looking to focus on particular elements of the programme, we can look into this.
  • self-directed learning – this enables participants to set learning goals, acquire knowledge and skills, set their own actions and evaluate themselves using a customised web portal which we'll build for you.
In order to make sure your in-house training needs are met, the best way to start this process is with a conversation (for free of course). Contact us online or call 020 7978 1516 to speak to one of our experienced consultants.

The Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI) is an evidence-based assessment tool that enables leaders to analyse and improve the effectiveness of their leadership performance. Leadership is assessed as a set of observable behaviours that, with deliberate practice, can be developed and improved.

Using the LPI analysis as a benchmark, the programme is then structured around the five Leadership Practices. These key elements provide practical tools and techniques to boost participants’ leadership approach.

Who is the programme for?

This programme is for experienced managers of teams and departments, or experts in their field who need to lead others without necessarily being a manager. It is suited to people who wish to develop their leadership skills or senior managers keen to renew their existing skill set.
