Leader Development

We believe that an organisation can only thrive in today’s VUCA world when its leaders are able to create a culture that liberates the leadership in all.

We will help your leaders evaluate, acknowledge and celebrate how their leadership approach has served them to date, then create a vision for the leadership that they will need to get your organisation to the next level.

There’s no one-size-fits-all solution. Every leader will have their own unique development journey.

As a leader, you will benefit from working with us when:

  • You need to create or shape a shared vision and strategy.
  • You are going through or anticipate change – personal, team or organisational.
  • You have acquired a new entity, merged or been acquired.
  • You are stressed and nearing burnout.
  • Silos need to be broken down.
  • You wish to strengthen connections – between individuals, teams, internal/external clients and/or other stakeholders.
  • You need to improve overall productivity or engagement.

Leaders have reported: 

  • Improved communication and transparency ↦ trust
  • Increase in collaboration ↦ creativity & innovations
  • More value placed on and gained from diversity and inclusion
  • Increased productivity ↦ personal, team and organisational goals
  • Better individual and collective resilience ↦ navigate change and ambiguity

Thank you for bringing our agenda from strategy day back into sharp focus.  Speaking on behalf of the Executive Board, we found the techniques you employed on strategy highly effective. They have enabled the Executive Board to work in a more connected manner, be even more decisive in terms of prioritisation and confront issues that need to be addressed in a decisive manner.

Janet, President, Women in Banking & Finance - WIBF

Obi helped us to develop of a new strategic plan, individual and collective visions for the Royal African Society (RAS). Having an external facilitator of Obi’s calibre and experience certainly made a difference from doing it in-house and I have no doubt that we will use her services again.

Richard, Deputy Director, Royal African Society - RAS

Obi and her associate did more than strengthen our collaboration. We walked away with a clear sense of purpose, enhanced creativity, excellent ideas, a better understanding of our team dynamics and a collectively-designed agreement on how we would support one another whilst staying fully committed to our team goals.

Niina, Deputy Chief Pharmacist, NHS

Obi clearly has a solid understanding of the Investment Banking business
which lends itself to a level of awareness of the challenges and culture,
and ultimately results in solutions that are fit-for-purpose.

Gwen, Senior Vice President, Bank of America Merrill Lynch

She helped us scratch behind the surface of our work and really strengthen our relationships.
Obi’s work is not for the faint-hearted.
We all had to be brave together as a team.

Jeanette Bain-Burnett, Head of Community Engagement, Greater London Authority

Obi encouraged and supported the team and through her facilitation of practical exercises, she created a wonderful space for the team to speak honestly and openly about their level of well-being and self-care approaches.
