Leadership Development Programmes
For deeper impact

A leadership development programme is ideal for growing and developing a group of people with similar needs. 

At Firefly our uniquely effective leadership development gives you the rigour of a larger coaching company with the personal feel of a boutique company, delivering a stimulating journey supported by our one-to-one work and broad suite of profiling tools. We’re big enough and agile enough to work across the sectors and the whole spectrum of career progression from emerging leaders up to senior leadership development at board level and beyond.

Today’s leaders need to work beyond boundaries, be adaptable and future-focused. With our unique philosophy and approach, we enable deep learning and growing. We start with your strengths and assets, helping you stretch into the leader you can become. By integrating the learning journeys of several leaders together, your organisation can experience strategic transformation.

From design to delivery and evaluating for impact

We design our leadership development programmes in a holistic way, working closely with clients to co-create the whole programme. Using a blend of approaches, our learning and development interventions deliver the impact that’s needed, moving leaders through from personal mastery to team and organisational mastery. Do you need to create change agents within your culture… or support a period of high growth… or encourage cross-boundary collaborative learning? Whatever you need to develop, our bespoke programmes deliver the desired change. And because we stay close to your agenda, if your needs evolve during a programme, we can seamlessly adapt and respond. It’s thanks to our dynamic partnering approach. 

When it comes to delivery, we’ll dovetail with your own in-house resources. And our follow-through ensures the changes are delivering on your strategic objectives and are self-sustaining.

What Our Clients Say

The work we have done with Firefly has been central to building the effectiveness of our new leadership team. As we brought together staff from very different predecessor organisations to form the leadership team for our new agency, Firefly ensured that we didn’t skim over the major challenges which developing a new organisational culture presented. The deep exploration of where individuals were coming from, and where we now need to go to develop a strong collective leadership approach has given us an excellent basis to go forward and I am sure it has been instrumental in ensuring a successful transition and the growing impact of our new organisation nearly three years on.
