Changing Leadership Behaviours in Construction

For Supervisors, a modular programme focused on Leadership & Management, Quality, Planning and People. Each module contained relevant inputs mixed with purpose built experiential simulations to maximise the opportunity to feedback on behaviours.

The workshops were supported by 1:1 coaching sessions for assessment and embedding new behaviours, as well as line manager briefing and support.

Whilst creating this programme we assisted in the creation of, tested and rolled out the new ILM qualification.

For Construction Supervisors, our unique Yacht Based business simulation helped development key behaviours in supporting the new culture.

The outcome of this was over 300 supervisors achieving the CILM Certificate (92% pass rate), 95% said they “have increased their knowledge or skills which they will be able to use in their “
