Leadership Team Away Days

Our highly experiential development programmes strike a considered balance between theory and application

Refresh, renew and re-invigorate your leadership team. We can provide you with an inspiring forum for your discussions, and facilitate them to ensure your objectives are met. In addition, we can design appropriate development exercises to assist with the collaboration and decision-making process. 

Our clients have benefited from programmes delivered in inspirational environments since we began over 20 years ago; some examples include the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, the Honourable Artillery Company, the Royal Berkshire Hotel, and the home to the England Rugby team, Pennyhill Park. We choose our partner venues carefully to ensure that they offer an environment that is not only away from the distractions of the office, but also one that inspires leaders to drive their business forward; faster, more effectively and sustainably.

You can look forward to an inspirational and thought provoking day and leave with powerful insights for the success of your organisation:

  • Review the leadership and followership in your organisation
  • Develop an action plan to ensure your leadership teams become more effective
  • Complete understanding of IDG’s leadership and followership model
  • How these methods apply to and benefit the commercial world
  • How this will provide your business with a huge competitive advantage



Leadership, Followership and Partnership form the three pillars of what we do. Of the three, Followership is the most mis-understood. On our programmes we use established business theory, real-life examples and our own research to show that being an effective Follower is not a passive, undermining intent; rather it is a vital skill required in every organisation and in any effective leader.

The emphasis is on “effective”:  not following blindly like sheep, mindlessly agreeing like yes-people, or keeping our heads down like survivors.  Our programmes create Followers who spend their time actually being effective, creating value, challenging the status quo –  and enable them to help their direct reports, colleagues and managers to do the same.

“There was a real focus on creating a positive learning experience where people wanted to develop and grow as leaders. This has led to sustained improvements and individuals continuing to focus on their leadership journeys.”

Create High Performance Teams

We understand the value of teams, not only in the workplace but also on programmes. We create Action Learning Teams which focus on supporting and challenging their members throughout a programme as well as working together on Business Improvement Projects.

We know that teams will keep in touch to deliver their projects. We hope that they will keep in touch over and above that because they want to. Building high performance teams in the workplace faster than the competition is the way that you will build a world-class bank.

We believe that in order to be ‘High Performing’, a team must have the following components:

Commitment towards a common goal

  • Clear objectives
  • Clarity of roles
  • Pace and urgency

Focus on the Customer

  • Proactively understanding needs
  • Managing the relationship
  • Going the extra mile

Continuous improvement mindset

  • Develop individually and as a team
  • Optimise all resources
  • Regularly review actions and processes

Shared emotional intelligence

  • Develop deeper understanding
  •  Apply sensitivity
  • Mutual encouragement 

Inspirational mentality

  • Leadership
  • Followership
  • Partnership

Courage of their convictions

  • Risk taking
  • Asking for forgiveness not permission
  • Decisiveness

Always mindful of morale

  • Celebrate success
  • Reward and recognition
  • Fun and motivation
