Human and high performing leadership for an unpredictable world
First opportunity to actually deliver something together as a team that we can really touch, see, feel. Makes traditional management team development exercises seem irresponsible.
What sets Ideas Unlimited apart is their freshness of thinking, their passion for delivering a programme of the highest possible standard, their willingness to act as true partners, and their depth of expertise in profound leadership development
Ideas Unlimited, you have made a profound and lasting difference to the way I think, feel and manage. I have learned much that will have an impact on both my development and performance and also consequently the results of my team. I feel deeply privileged to have been developed in this way and a sense of responsibility to deliver performance as a result.
We value the work of Ideas Unlimited very highly: their team members are the embodiment of authenticity and integrity. They collaborate closely with us in planning the most effective experience possible for those they reach. The impact of their work has been significant on a wide range of participants, and has helped equip them to face the challenges of leadership in a dynamic and creative sector.
When we came here this morning it felt like ‘them’ and ‘us’. Now it feels like we all work for the same company. The power of this event is amazing. If this is the new company then I want to be a part of it!
The programme of change was expertly handled and strongly facilitated. The impact on the managers’ approach to their jobs has been significant and we have now incorporated the “performance factors” into our performance management system. There is no doubt that this development helped us to embed the change to managers’ jobs that we wanted to see. This would not have happened just from the reselection process and the revised job descriptions. Managers needed to know “how” to manage performance and this process helped them to develop the skills, practices and confidence to do exactly that.
I have found Ideas Unlimited to be very talented at creating leadership development that is deeply thought provoking, personal and challenging for individuals, and which accelerates progress on organisational culture and performance.
I worked with Ideas Unlimited for seven months during the design and delivery of the programme. The time that I spent developing and delivering the programme was one of the most challenging and life-changing experiences of my career. Their approach was refreshing and innovative and quite unlike anything that I have witnessed previously or since.
I wanted to share with you and your team one more time how pleased I am with the outcome of the programme. It went way above my expectations, an opinion shared by all the Senior Executive Team members.. Your creativity, dedication, commitment and support were key success factors that allowed us to create the excitement, energy and alignment needed for our continued success. Thank you and well done.
The programme was indeed iconic, truly engaging and world class, not least because of the exceptionally innovative techniques deployed. Networks that have been built across the organisation are being maintained and have led to unprecedented levels of cross-business working and removal of cultural barriers. The increased confidence of the participants to champion, challenge and lead is incredible and has resulted in tremendous commercial benefits to the organisation.
I have used 3 external coaches to support my team this year; the group who have worked with Ideas Unlimited have progressed at circa 5 times the rate of the others. The best I have come across in 21 years.
