Intelligent Leadership

  • David Lloyd Warrington Cromwell Avenue South WA5 1HH (map)

As part of our academy series we have developed a bespoke two-day programme for aspiring leaders.

In this rapidly evolving world, how do we ensure our people and teams are both satisfied and appropriately challenged, when the ‘grass is greener’ elsewhere and people expect continual development, growth and opportunity?


Unfortunately, there is no one simple answer since we humans are complex creatures! Therefore, to be successful, we must first understand our own behaviours and then the behaviours of those around us.

This is why, in this two-day workshop we will explore what people might actually seek, from a leader. Once we have determined this you will create your own roadmap toward success, where you identify behaviours and patterns that inspire, while being are supportive yet challenging.

By the end of these interactive workshops you will have been appropriately challenged to determine your strengths, weaknesses and defined how to maintain or improve their existing leadership skills.

The following topics will be explored:

Day One - Understanding Leadership

1.What is leadership – What inspires us?

2 How great leaders, lead – Defining your values

3 Building a culture through storytelling - Know your audience

4 Being a role model - Understand your performance/ behaviour mirroring

5 Define your material - Outcomes and expectations

Day Two - Determining and Creating Success

‘Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth’

Whilst this famous Mike Tyson quote may be true, does this mean that we should never plan, as things are going to change anyway? Maybe? Perhaps not.

Without a framework to work to, a destination to head towards and a road map to get there we are likely to quickly get lost.

This workshop will help you learn how to develop your own frameworks, outcomes, strategies and tactics so whether you get punched in the mouth or not, you will be able to keep moving forward, in the right direction, passing milestones and measuring your progress....

Topics explored

1. Why we use a framework

2. Thought processes and mindset

3. Defining outcomes and milestones

4. Creating strategies

5. Using tactics, process goals and timescales

6. Repeatable behaviours

Please come, prepared to leave your comfort zone, as this is where your personal growth will occur…

Your Trainer - Chris Rock - Excelsior


I have been fortunate enough to have learnt from great leaders, to have worked with world class colleagues and have acquired knowledge all over the world.

From these experiences I have developed an unwavering approach to ethically nurture, develop and lead believing that to be effective I must first consistently improve myself.

Through greater humility, gaining comprehension and growing healthy relationships I aspire to make each and everyday both constructive and productive.

From seeking to learn, determining outcomes, creating strategy and executing on promises my teams have repeatedly been successful.
