Leadership and Management Essentials 


Our own programmes were created by ourselves and draw on over twenty-two years of experience delivering leadership development programmes.

They can be tailored for future supervisors, team leaders and managers as well as those people already in these roles.

We work closely with your managers to help them:

  • Excel as managers, living your organisation’s vision, values and culture, and supporting their teams to do the same
  • Giving them the skills, knowledge and behaviours to be competent in their role, understanding how to lead and the impact that their leadership has on their team
  • Being clear on their responsibilities and having the confidence and tools to have difficult conversations, manage performance on a daily basis and drive their teams forward

We also can build in your own processes and approach in areas such as performance management, financial acumen and business strategy.

Leadership Development - Online Learning


We allocate each learner a Polaris Learning consultant who works closely with the learner.

We build in a series of live webinars or on demand webinars to support the learning process. Client reporting is built in as standard so you can keep track of progress.

The duration of the programme can be organised to suit your requirements and we can facilitate the completion of this over a short or longer period of time.

Learners will be required to work through five online modules and will receive feedback as they work through the individual modules.  The online modules are:

  • Module 1: Communication Skills
  • Module 2: Leadership Skills
  • Module 3: Motivation for Performance
  • Module 4: Leading Change
  • Module 5: Coaching Skills

With the online learning programme, learners complete four practical assignments which have been designed to bridge the gap between their formal learning and what they do back in their workplace.   The assignments take around six to eight hours to complete and learners have three months in which to complete these. They are supported by their Polaris Learning consultant during this important stage of the learning process.


Our 30-hour programmes of learning offer the following benefits:

  • Content and delivery methods that are flexible so we can work with you to create the right approach for your organisation, to meet the development needs of your team and to exceed the expectations of the managers.
  • Learning and practical application that give the maximum benefits to leaders while balancing the reality that most managers usually have busy jobs to return to.
  • The programmes are recognised by the ILM and meet the high standards of learning required by the ILM.
  • A focus on topics that are critical to the success of managers at different stages in their careers as well as elongated learning through pre-course and post-course work will help result in real change back in the work place.
  • A strategy and mechanism for helping managers to take what they have learnt, to see clearly how to prioritise this and to start applying the knowledge in their job role. This also provides us with a way to evaluate the learning and to provide feedback in the weeks after the workshops are completed.
  • We have designed them to match the ILM qualifications so that:
    • Leadership & Development Essentials is equivalent to an ILM Level 3 to 3.5 depending on what is required.
