Getting the best from your leadership team will have a hugely positive impact on the performance of your organisation.
Leadership Team development has challenges beyond that of project teams, as the team members are all leaders themselves sitting at the top of the organisation with their own pressures, deliverables, teams and resource requirements. The performance of the Leadership Teams, whether they are called the “Senior Leadership Team”, “Steering Committee”, “Board” or similar name is critical to organisational success and has a disproportionately large influence on overall performance. The increasing complexity of teamwork in the 21st Century means that these teams are unlikely to achieve superior performance through chance or the skill-set of an able team leader alone. 21st century teams must harness and manage a number of elements effectively in order to achieve peak performance.
“I have attended management training and development courses all over the UK and Ireland in the last 20 years and nothing has had as powerful an impact on me, personally and professionally, as the work I did with Aidan Higgins… The training course he did with my management team is still having a positive impact nearly 18 months later and I would expect it to continue to do so”
A leadership team’s success can be directly attributed to the ability to synchronize team members and help them move through team development. Knowing and understanding the behaviours of effective leaders and the critical elements of leadership team development helps organizations ensure success even in the most complex organisational challenges. More and more organisations are becoming less hierarchical and are relying on teams to create competitive advantage. Many of these organisations are now required to build higher levels of collaboration and performance in their teams.
If you sense your teams are not reaching their full potential; if you desire greater collaboration; if energy is being wasted on unproductive conflict; if there is lack of follow-through on commitments; or you desire greater creativity and innovation, then ADEO Consulting’s Leadership Team Development Program could be ideal for you.

We work with HR and CEO’s to align their Leadership Team better with high level organisational objectives and improve their contribution to the organisation as a whole.
Leadership team development is a key component of organisational success. Companies innovate, compete, communicate, perform and profit though their leaders. Their leaders make things happen. Or not. Leaders are the main influencer of human capital performance. Companies also lose good loyal leaders through burnout, fatigue, stress and lack of appreciation. This trend became more prevalent through the “noughties” and in the current environment even more pressure has come to bear. Our Leadership Team Development aligns the internal motivators of a leader, creates a better balance, removes illusions that cause stress, improves workplace harmony and strengthens emotional resilience. It improves leadership performance which directly impacts the bottom line.
