Leadership development programme

Prepare your business to excel in performance.


Connor’s INSPIRED Performance programme is a simple, effective way of getting right to the heart of individual, team and business performance. By developing employee resilience and agility, we prepare your people to thrive in the face of every challenge. 

This delivers significant improvements in performance, growth, innovation and customer experience. Examples of our clients’ success:

  • 28% improvement in customer experience (to a stunning 98%)
  • 30% increase in leaders’ confidence to coach teams rather than tell them what to do.

It is no surprise that Connor has been nominated as one of the top people consultancies in the UK for delivering ROI as a result of our talent and leadership development programmes.

It was unique to attend something that helped me understand the psychology of success and change at an individual, team and business level, and gave me the skills to apply back in the day-to-day business, to help me and my team achieve more.”Managing director, professional services company

  6. Leadership impact – helps leaders become convincing role models to align team and organisation culture with your business objectives and to lead diversity.
  7. Embedding – 1:1 or team coaching that sustains and embeds leadership behaviours needed to effect change throughout your organisation.

Our leadership training courses are built on our passionate belief that a culture of high performance starts with the individual and then filters into teams and the organisation.
