Our Services

 

Dare2Lead offers a range of motivational, practical and interactive training programmes run by inspiring leaders with real life expertise. Our three core services are:

Our Training Approach

Our training focuses on three levels – skills and knowledge, attitudes and behaviours, and culture and values. Our ‘one size fails most’ ethos means we take the time to really develop a relationship with our clients. This totally bespoke approach ensures we understand your challenges and aspirations, creating a training programme that is truly yours.

“9 in every 10 people we train would recommend us”

In a Dare2Lead session, you can expect very participatory, interactive and dynamic agendas. Our sense of creativity and our aim to truly embed the learning means we don’t do training at you; we very much do it with you. Trainers focus on developing the skills and tools that participants can use long after they have left the training room. This ongoing learning mentality is reinforced by specially designed leadership handbooks and learning materials.

In partnership with a number of leadership academics, business figures, social sector experts and policymakers, Dare2Lead has developed a unique development model – Personal Authentic Leadership.

Across all our modules, self-awareness is the critical start point of our approach. We believe you must begin with the ‘inner person’ before moving on to the wider principles, practices and processes of effective leadership.
