Heyward Group curate leadership experiences across the UK, generally in remote locations away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Our retreats are activity-based learning programmes that gradually build pressure and stress in a safe environment to simulate team situations when leading a business.
Our leadership experiences are designed to develop a greater understanding of your individual leadership skills and team dynamics. Strengths and disfunctions of the team are explored in detail as much of the learning occurs through group feedback sessions, where your team are supported to give and receive constructive feedback. The course has been developed over 20 years and yet will be tailor-made based on a diagnostic of the needs of the team.
We are well equipped to develop and deliver business specific training on a range of subjects including Revenue Management, Finance and Asset Management. We are also equipped to support organisations with training on Collaboration and Interest Based Negotiation, Team Building and Change Management.
We draw on years of practical experience and leading academic research in order to create specific business training based on the challenges you wish to overcome. We avoid “off the shelf” solutions which can limit our thinking and the overall outcome. We are committed to delivering a high success rate.
We have extensive experience in mentoring and coaching at all organisational levels. We can also support you to implement a formal mentoring culture, promoting personal and professional development within your organisation. Of course, we practice what we preach, donating our spare time to support high potential talent in several mentoring programmes.
Through the application of Harrison Assessments, along with other tools, we support you and your teams to review job specific success factors, identify behaviour gaps and produce incredibly targeted personal development plans. Our assessments provide detailed insights into the choices that you make daily and a deeper insight into leadership challenges you might be facing.
We have worked with several large and medium sized international brands to produce bespoke development and graduate programmes. Our packages are designed to identify and prepare your future business leaders. Our approach is to engage you in creating a holistic programme where your aspiring leaders receive a solid foundation on which to build their careers and support in the retention of your top talent.
Your development programme will follow a blended learning approach and can be underpinned with the support of a mentoring programme. Participants can also take part in a real-life business project with the sponsorship of your senior leaders where they will expect to take the project from research stages through to completion, producing tangible results. We have seen businesses and leaders grow through as a result of investing in our development programmes.
