The Leadership Group are people and project managers selected by the company's Directors from every area of the business who are identified as talent / future leaders within the business and it is regarded as an opportunity for those selected to develop and blossom outside of their day-job. The Group help shape the organisation, improve understanding of the business and ensure there is communication up & down the company. They meet throughout the year to work on organisational projects, such as identifying, launching and embedding the Mission, Vision and Values, providing feedback to the Directors, communicating key messages to their teams and identifying and solving issues. There is also a Management training programme which is run by an external trainer, which is a 12-month development programme for new Managers. They are given specific training in modules such as people management, conflict, review processes as well as a larger business improvement project which the whole group must deliver and present back to the Board, ultimately to be implemented into the business. This helps the group to understand a particular area of the business in detail, improve their project management skills and encourages them to shine.
