Leadership Development

LifeForward’s leadership development programmes help leaders excel. We enable individuals and leadership teams to gain confidence to lead with authenticity and vision. 

Through our Leadership Programme at LifeForward, we work with leaders to develop new skills such as strategic planning, business development, eminence building, change management and personal impact to help them manage the transition from management to leadership. Our leadership development programmes incorporate workshops, executive coaching and Insights Discovery® to help leaders develop their emotional intelligence and leadership capabilities, target critical skills and identify areas for development.

Leadership Development at LifeForward

We recognise that leaders have many responsibilities and often find it difficult to take time out for personal development. Therefore  our programmes are tailored for each organisation and client, and offer a flexible delivery approach. Whether in bite-size short workshops, a programme of one-to-one executive coaching or an offsite training day, we take our core leadership development competencies and deliver them where and when they are most effective for the client. We can also blend leadership development with business coaching to build skills as we work on practical and current business challenges.

Any time, any place…

We have offices in Europe and, through our associate, LifeForward Pte Ltd, offices in South East Asia, offsite venues on two continents available for leadership retreats, team coaching and personal development, LifeForward brings leadership development to you.

Discover the leader within you

We help leaders to identify their strengths and leadership style and gain the confidence to lead authentically, aligning personal and business values in a clear vision for the future. Our focus on emotional intelligence competencies such as self-awareness, self-assessment and self-management gives leaders the skills they need to continue to grow and develop throughout their career.

Benefits of LifeForward's leadership development

  • What our clients say
  • The benefits of leadership development
  • Leadership development and Insights Discovery

When considering leadership development, consider what type of leader you are looking for.

Good leaders, who exhibit high self-awareness and accurate self-assessment, know their limitations and strengths. They therefore delegate effectively and will bring in specialist help as needed. Such leaders are open to continued learning and development and welcome constructive criticism and feedback. They can utilise their strengths to good effect and use their emotional intelligence to bring out the best in others.

Once a leader has acquired these essential leadership capabilities, they will know how to use them on an ongoing basis, thereby creating a virtuous circle of continuous learning, growth and development.

Insights Discovery personality profiles are a valuable addition to leadership development programmes as they improve self-awareness and understanding of others.

The different chapters available can provide additional insights into certain aspects of business life or personal growth.

Insights Discovery can be incorporated as part of a broader leadership development programme or run as a separate workshop.
