Leadership Development Programmes

Liminal provides leadership development programmes for those in leadership roles or those moving to leadership roles. Each programme is designed to meet the needs of the organisation. Your leadership programme with Liminal will have a discovery process, a co-design process, training delivery and the monitoring and evaluation of outcomes. Liminal specialises in multi-day leadership programmes which instil self-confidence, self-belief and a strategic mindset which is adaptable to change. Topics covered in previous programmes include personal effectiveness, growth mindset, performance management, leadership communication & presence, conflict management, leading change, critical thinking skills and enterprise awareness.

Leadership Coaching Programmes

Coaching enables leadership. In conjunction with leadership development, or as a standalone programme, Liminal’s leadership coaching programmes will fast-track the development of your leaders. The world of work has changed and will continue to evolve at an increasing pace. The leaders of the future need to be adaptable, emotionally intelligent, collaborative and agile. Liminal’s coaching programmes focus on the essential leadership habits that permit sustained and sustainable performance.

Group Facilitation

Teams, like organisations, take on a life of their own. Each team's circumstances, and each team’s dynamics, are different. Liminal’s impartial and skilled facilitation style enables teams to navigate and overcome challenges and to work together effectively and efficiently. Based on deep listening techniques and careful questioning, Liminal’s group facilitation will help your team to honestly face issues or concerns and to transform their ways of working.

What Clients Say

I worked with Brendan last year. Brendan provided a really structured and grounded coaching experience. He listens well and challenges with experience and skill. Our work together was very goal-focused which Brendan supported in a way that let the learning and change happen very naturally. Brendan is particularly skilled at assisting with transitions. I have no hesitation in recommending him to others and have done so.

Liminal has delivered learning programmes for the Wheel on Change Mangement for leaders for the past few years. The participants who took part in these workshops agree that they had grown in confidence as a result of the training, and rate the sessions highly in their feedback. We have found Liminal very easy to work with - communication is always clear and prompt, and the quality of the work delivered has always been very well received. We look forward to working with them again in future on a variety of topics.

Brendan delivered a leadership development programme to the management team in Shine which covered topics such as communication skills, team building skills, conflict management and developing a growth mindset for personal and professional development. From the very beginning, Brendan demonstrated that he had a deep understanding of our industry, our challenges, and the specific needs of our management team. This knowledge allowed him to tailor the workshops to address our needs effectively.

I collaborated with Brendan on the design of an in-house development programme for our future leaders. Brendan is a first-class listener who takes the time to understand what is needed, and then crafts the programme to specific requirements. We worked closely together to ensure that the learning was multi-faceted and integrated into the day-to-day work of the company. The result was an excellently designed and professionally delivered bespoke two-day leadership programme, which elicited very positive feedback from the participants.

American Chamber of Commerce

Brendan worked for several years with the American Chamber of Commerce on the subject of change management. This was as part of the Chamber's "Women in Global Organisations Programme". Brendan led the group on a workshop discussing the transtheoretical model of behaviour change, or the "Stages of Change" model. The group were encouraged to consider where they were personally in terms of the change they wished to see. Strategies for encouraging change at the different stages were also discussed in a format that mixed content delivery and group facilitation.
