“As a team, we can work more consistently using the same approach with our differences respected. I feel as a team this will helps us to be more consistent in our approach and in what we offer. I found the programme very interesting and informative. I enjoyed the mix of theory with discussion and application along side the practical elements of putting it into practice which helped me understand more and my confidence.”

Although all the participants had attended a wide variety of management and leadership courses and qualifications previously, I have no doubt that the programme facilitated by The Institute for Organisational Development had the greatest impact at both an emotional and operational level. This programme got to the heart of who these leaders are, how they perceive themselves and how others perceive them. As a critical group of senior leaders in the constabulary I now have a team who understand each other, will support each other and will work in a cohesive manner to achieve the significant transformation which lies ahead of us.

A truly brilliant programme! How to put the skills into practice is something I have found massively useful to help boost my understanding and my confidence. It also gave me a chance to think about areas about myself and others and changes in line with the 7 stages to which we were introduced to. This is absolutely something I will be sharing and practising back in to my organisation. Thank you again to the Institute and to a fantastic facilitator facilitating an excellent session once again!

“Practising consulting, coaching and facilitation were very valuable to me! The process + method + content really stood out for me as a particular tool in the facilitation module. I will be taking away all I have learnt on the OD programme an implementing this a lot more regularly into my work place. This has equipped me with the starting point for OD and for myself on a personal level for the future! Thank you for a fantastic facilitator!”

On an individual level the programmes are great for reflecting on my personal practice and have improved my conversations better with the clients. On an organisational level I’ve used them both within the police sector and a private sector organisation. It’s all been about building the performance of team members and making sure that services are improved and we get better outputs from them.

To summarise the Resilient Leader programme ran by the Institute for OD, I would say the programme gave me the key to a door and the option to open that door and walk through. It provided me with a personal reflectiveness, which has benefitted my personal and professional life.
The programme has shown me the benefit of resilience and mental toughness when achieving my professional objectives as well as looking at my personal well-being.
It is a fantastic programme, I would highly recommend it. If you have the opportunity to take some time out, go to the Institute and take a look for yourself.

Very useful – for me this was the best style as it was informal and flexed to the needs of us all. Each session was different and changed to what our needs were. My expectations have been exceeded.
Lynne Fawcus, The Co-Operative Group
This course has been a life changing experience. The programme is well balanced and I have appreciated the experience of supervision and being coached as well as the modules. My expectations have been exceeded. It has been a personal journey of discovery.
Zoe McDougall, Performance Development Coach
I thoroughly enjoyed the course and the interaction with you and colleagues was fantastic. It was also good to have the time out from such a busy working week to just have time to think and consider – a practice I have continued with since the end of the course.
