The Challenge

Leoni wanted to find a way to equip their emerging managers and leaders with essential people and business skills to build stronger relationships with team members and stakeholders whilst driving team performance even higher. The programme needed to help learners raise awareness about themselves and others, as well as embedding the beliefs and attitudes of the company within the learning content.

The Solution

Emerging Leaders Programme

Ashorne Hill designed and delivered the Emerging Leaders programme which was structured around the main components of emotional intelligence, self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, and influence. This programme was designed with learner impact and learning transfer at its core, focusing on knowledge sharing, experiential learning, reflection, and action planning.

The Structure

Leoni leaders and managers began with an onboarding webinar which provided them with an overview of the programme to prepare the learners. Their own managers are also asked to attend so that we can expand receptivity and further improve the embedding of new skills and knowledge. The programme was split into 2 journeys; ‘Self-Understanding and Social Understanding to Drive Performance’ and ‘Leading for Improved Performance’. These journeys delved into psychological and experiential learning through a blend of virtual classrooms, face-to-face sessions, and action learning sets (guided coaching and mentoring in small groups) to keep learners fully engaged and helped them retain, explore, expand, and apply knowledge.

After a month following the experiential learning at our premium facility, the cohort separated into smaller groups to workshop real-life situations. These action learning sets took place at Leoni and demonstrates another way we promote the transfer of learning from the training room to day-to-day work activities. We also encouraged learners to put their knowledge to the test and further develop their critical human skills by setting future goals and objectives. The progress and findings are shared with the HR department at Leoni which is then fed to the line managers of the individuals to continue their learning development.
