Leadership & Management
To discuss how our leadership programmes, Lead Beyond, Lead On and Lead Up, could shape the future of your organisation, please contact us below.
Our leadership programmes for senior leaders create a stimulating environment with a guiding structure to help them find clarity in their vision and define their strategy. We provide a supportive and robust network from which to instil a fresh perspective, carve an effective new pathway and shape well-considered objectives to implement the change needed to drive the organisation forward.
Through group coaching, structured activities and the space to innovate, CAKE’s leadership programmes deliver transformative results in the way leaders approach their roles, work through challenges and navigate the future.
Working with organisations to manage change, unite and engage their people, and strategise and plan for the future.
Our consultancy includes the focus areas below in addition to any other area you’d like a fresh perspective on. To discuss your vision and how you’d like our help, please contact us.
In addition to our bespoke coaching, leadership and executive development programmes, we offer guidance through our consultancy service. Over the course of our 35 years in professional learning and development, having partnered with hundreds of organisations and thousands of learners, we’ve learned a thing or two about how to strategise and reach those goals. Whether you’re a company director looking for support on how to articulate your vision or reinvent your strategy, or you’d like to help your management team achieve their goals, align and drive the business forward, our guidance might be exactly what your organisation needs to thrive.
It’s natural to shy away from the thought of change, but embracing change is what could shift the culture of your organisation to unite and empower its people, and it’s often the reality of actualising progress. We can equip you with the tools and techniques you need to communicate change more effectively and nurture a seamless transition towards optimal performance.
Does the mindset of your organisation’s people align with its values? Do they share a collective vision for the company’s future? Creating an engagement strategy will give meaning to their work so they know they’re a part of the bigger picture. Whether you’d like help refining strategic communication, facilitating and activating organisational thinking, reviewing employee engagement or you’re simply looking for original team-building events that work, we will help you to achieve a lasting influence.
Strategic Planning & Development
We view strategic planning and strategy development as an opportunity to unify the entire organisation around a single purpose and direction. Ideal for key focus areas, upcoming campaigns or for an all-encompassing philosophy fundamental to the organisation, this comprehensive area of development will intertwine ideas, objectives, strategy and culture for a complete and refreshed approach to organisational growth.
"If you are looking to choose a training partner, that gets under the skin of your business to understand its true development needs, and delivers appropriate strategic solutions, then CAKE is the right choice for your organisation."
