Are you still open for business during the COVID-19 Crisis?
Yes, we are. Our international offices in South Africa, India, Oman and the UAE are also remaining open. However, we have reduced our staffing levels in the UK for a short time.
What is your relationship with the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst?
The Inspirational Development Group has benefited from an exclusive partnering agreement with the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst for 20 years. We have an office located at Old College, full access to the Sandhurst grounds and indeed, enjoy a warm relationship with senior military leaders from the Academy. There is much that commercial organisations can learn from the military, most notably from Sandhurst, an institution steeped in a culture of leadership excellence for over 200 years, but we are not a paramilitary organisation. We translate the most effective and relevant leadership methods from the Sandhurst into the commercial world.
Do you offer open courses?
No, IDG operates on a B2B model. If you are an organisation with a group or cadre that requires development in sustainable behavioural change – from graduates all the way through to the C-level, we can help.
Do you offer digital courses/programmes?
Yes, we do. These can be “blended” with more traditional face to face and experiential inputs, or purely through digital media. However, we encourage our clients to maintain a human element to all digital programmes, be it through online facilitation, webinars, or indeed even one to one coaching and mentoring if required.
What else do you offer other than leadership and management development?
Although IDG’s reputation is one that has been forged in the “leadership development” space, we also offer programmes and simulations in commercial excellence, executive and team coaching, graduate and youth programmes and also touch on subjects that have been become increasingly linked to good leadership and team behaviour, notably the advances in the cognitive sciences, wellbeing and nutrition and business ethics for example.
