Leadership and Management Training
for Leaders, Managers, and Key Figures

In order for us to succeed at anything, we need to know what we’re doing, and how to do it.

Leadership and management training gives you the knowledge required to do this. As a leader or manager, you need a foundational body of knowledge that gives you the confidence to practise making the positive difference you want. This is where the importance of training, and turning knowledge into skill, comes into play.

As an award-winning trainer, I will work with you to design and deliver a bespoke programme that meets your most important leadership and management knowledge needs.

I automatically build in real-life case studies, and workplace examples to bring my training resources to life. Together, we will work to make the training process even more relevant by creating space to consider the real situations and experiences that you and your fellow delegates face.

My approach to training will ensure you take away practical value that you can use right away to improve your leadership and management immediately. These outcomes can be further enhanced by including coaching within the solution if required.

Why Choose

Grant Cullen Coaching for your Training needs?

My bespoke leadership and management training is tailored to the needs of leaders and managers across the UK. Each of my offerings follows a core set of values which I believe makes them truly unique:

Your time and investment are valuable. I will focus on the training needs that are most important to you. You will never receive an ‘off the shelf’ program from me.

We will reach into the deep reservoir of tools, concepts, and models I have built up over the 25 years plus I’ve been a trainer. My training is very practical and improvement-focused. Often employing a proven framework helps realise those improvements.

I adopt a facilitative approach to training. My conviction is ‘the best answers are in the room’. I will encourage contribution to and ownership of the subjects we cover by the delegates. That’s the way to maximise learning quality.

Accredited Leadership and Management Coaching Services - Mindfulness Educator

Coaching and Training effectively
through Humanity, Authenticity and Ability

My leadership and management training service is designed around a core of three critical, mutually sustaining areas. I believe tailoring around these three areas allows for an essential balance between a sole focus on performance improvement, and the effectiveness of the human behind the senior role title, resulting in the development of truly meaningful, and sustainable solutions.

Though three areas are equally applicable to teams and whole organisations, I will adopt the perspective most suitable for your leadership and management training needs.

As a leader or manager, you are judged every day. You never get a day off. Three questions that people will continuously ask themselves about you are:

  • Is this leader or manager a real person? (How much humanity have you got?) – This is important so that people can relate to and connect with you
  • Is this leader or manager being the real version of themselves? (How much authenticity have you got?) – This is important for people to trust you
  • Is this leader or manager really effective? (How do you behave to show you care about your people so that they make the decision to fully engage?)- This is important for people to respect you

Our leadership and management training experience will greatly assist in developing and consolidating valuable knowledge – ensuring you and your team operate to the best of your abilities within the workplace

Leadership & Management Training FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

What is management training?

Management training focuses on the effective development of valuable, applicable knowledge – a key factor in the success of managers and their teams within any context.

Managers are required to possess, at minimum, a foundational body of knowledge surrounding their role, sector, and team in order to confidently and effectively manage and lead. Should this knowledge be lacking or outdated, the function of an entire organisation may be negatively impacted. This is where management training comes into play.

In order for us to succeed at anything, we need to know what we’re doing, and how to do it. Training gives you the knowledge required to do this. Grant Cullen’s management training approach works to instil practical, applicable knowledge, built to improve management abilities, through the use of hand-created case studies and scalable packages.

What is leadership training?

Leadership training is much the same as management training, adapted according to context. Working to develop a valuable, applicable foundation of knowledge, built to help leaders perform in a more effective manner, leadership training uses scalable educational packages in the form of case studies and conversation to help key figures develop a deeper understanding of the foundations of their organisation or team, alongside what exactly they’re doing, and how to do it.

How much does leadership training cost?

The cost of leadership training varies greatly depending on coach or provider – alongside the format in which they provide their services – with many offering training priced per session, and others offering packages. Grant Cullen Coaching generally offers leadership training in a package or ‘one-off’ format, with price adjustable depending on the scale of training required (as this service may be adjusted to meet the needs of both individual leaders and wider teams).

Who is leadership and management training for?

Leadership and management training is a highly adaptable process, suited to both individuals in active leadership or management positions, alongside high potential individuals set to take on such roles in the near future, and extended teams. Most commonly used to bridge knowledge gaps with the aim of increasing team performance, leadership and management training is often thought to be best suited to those with a lack of or possessing outdated foundational knowledge, but may also be suited to those looking to stay ‘at the top of their game’.

Looking to improve your performance as a leader or manager with the help of an experienced coach and trainer? Contact Grant Cullen today for a 30-minute free consultation.

How long does leadership and management training take?

The length of a leadership and management training engagement can vary according to context, goals set, and the level of support required by the trainee or trainees – amongst a huge number of variables. In accordance with this variability, the leadership coaching ‘process’ is generally very flexible, and can last anywhere from one extended session and the provision of resources to ongoing training.

Grant Cullen Coaching offers a highly adaptable leadership and management coaching approach, built around the needs of both individuals and teams. Providing both active conversation and re-usable resources, his training engagements can consist of both single sessions and continuous training.

How can I improve my knowledge and skills at work?

Leadership and management training is one of the most effective ways to establish or build upon a foundational level of industry and organisational knowledge in the workplace. Working in a highly adaptable and tailored manner to develop valuable, applicable knowledge and skillsets for managers and leaders across a number of industries, training provides the knowledge and confidence required to help mangers and leaders make a genuine, positive impact on their workplace and team.

Grant Cullen’s approach to training will ensure you take away practical value that you can use right away to improve your leadership and management immediately. These outcomes can be further enhanced by including coaching within the solution if required.

Is management training worth it?

Whether or not management training is ‘worth it’ is highly dependent on the quality of training provided - alongside what exactly the client seeks to gain from the experience. Management training, when conducted by an experienced professional with consideration for organisational circumstances, can be a highly valuable process, moving beyond a monetary return on investment.

Management coaching has the power to positively impact the confidence, competence, and professional performance of not only one manager, – but the teams they lead – resulting in improved performance across the board.

Does leadership training make a difference?

The extent to which leadership training makes a difference is dependent on a number of factors, including the format of training received, the amount of support required by the leader or leaders in training, and the training provider. If the training process is employed effectively, and tailored to the requirements of the trainee and their organisation, it can have a significant positive impact over not just those receiving training, but entire teams.

Leadership training works to fill skills and knowledge gaps experienced by leaders and their people, using a combination of discussion and resources to create a direct plan of action. This plan, especially when followed over extended periods of time, can result in increased levels of engagement, competence, and confidence, alongside increased performance across both leaders and their teams.

Is leadership and management training tax deductible?

In the vast majority of UK cases, so long as leadership and management training is considered to ‘impart, instil or improve or reinforce any knowledge or skills likely to prove useful when performing duties of any relevant employment’, a business can claim a tax deduction for the cost. This rule most often classes training with the intent of developing leadership or management skills for use within the workplace - meaning leadership and management training should be tax-deductible.

Individual circumstances always apply, and it is highly advisable to contact HMRC to clarify whether or not your leadership and management training is tax-deductible prior to making a claim.
