Whether it’s team or individual executive development, we have a handful of set training programmes to develop your executive teams and board members. Committed to the 4P’s – Purpose, People, Planet & Profit (or Performance pending company status), our training has been designed with your strategic needs in mind.

Challenges addressed in our training include:

  • Safeguarding governance and keeping clients and staff safe
  • Balancing a profitable business with people centred approaches
  • Creating inclusive workplaces
  • Futureproofing with compassion

Previous work has included:

  • Compassion – Development of new corporate teams with emerging leaders
  • Diversity – Developing and delivering diversity training for the Metropolitan Police as part of the Stephen Lawrence Macpherson inquiry
  • Safeguarding – Supporting boards with their strategic safeguarding practices and governance for subsidiary companies

Organisations that have undertaken training with us have improved their awareness in these areas, kept up to date with legislation and able to pass crucial regulation visits to increase business. They have reduced safeguarding by 20% within the 2nd month by introducing quality assurance and tracking measuring the effectiveness of their systems. An organisation also improved their staff retention by 20%. Understand your own development needs and how to identify and support the needs of staff with ongoing support in Compassion, DEIB and Safeguarding.

DEIB • Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging

A Deloitte study found that DEIB can increase competitive advantage by 46%, more accurate decision making by 40%, 34% increase in financial performance, and boost employee engagement, breeding cutting-edge innovation.

Our DEIB programme includes reviewing values, mission and vision, quality assurance, equality audits, workplace adjustments and practices, as well as inclusive workplaces.

Compassionate Business & Leadership

[Harvard Business Review] Of the over 1,000 leaders we surveyed, 91% said compassion is very important for leadership, and 80% would like to enhance their compassion but do not know how. Compassion is clearly a hugely overlooked skill in leadership training.

The good news is you don't have to choose between Compassionate Business or Leadership you can ‘pick & mix’ to choose the modules best suited to your organisation.

Safeguarding for Governance

Safeguarding and compliance go hand in hand when working in this area with vulnerable groups.

With the ongoing legislative updates and changing requirements of leaders we can assist you with our DSL (Designated Safeguarding Lead) training as well as specialist trauma informed programmes to help you with your board governance and compliance.

The Compassionate Business Programme is a unique offering developed by Toni McLelland

The definition of Compassionate Leadership is “An intuitive, heart-led action-oriented approach that builds real human connection and outcomes, not only for the individual but for the organisation & culture” – Toni McLelland
The Compassionate Business is “An organisation that takes positive action for sustainable development and has purpose values and people at the core of its foundation.”
For the Compassionate Business Programme – Our work is underpinned by the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and improve the lives and prospects of everyone, we will show you how this works in your organisation and the benefits.

“I’ve worked with Toni as a business partner for over a year and I can say without a doubt that she’s one of the most inspiring people I’ve ever met (and we’ve only interacted virtually). She is warm, has a no-nonsense directness & keen ability to find out what's important to you and then subtly helps you achieve your goals.

It's a trait that I find in exceptional coaches (career, executive, and life coaches) and I've had the pleasure of working with, learning from, and being inspired by many great ones. If you're considering working with her, I highly recommend it. It's sure to be a great learning experience and fun along the way.”

Greg Bartlett Circus Fellow, Albert & Friends Instant Circus

“Toni’s training was fantastic. She had a great way with the team and young people and made them
all feel relaxed, included and like they had a voice.

We set her quite a difficult task in terms
of the training content but she delivered brilliantly. She was very flexible, tailoring what she
was delivering to the Team and their needs, she responded on to the spot to their input

I have read the feedback from the Team, and they all got a huge amount from
her sessions, really impressive trainer.”
