Format of the Programme



360 Audit & Feedback Coaching Session

The Programme starts with a 360 degree skills assessment to identify areas of strength and gaps in becoming a more engaging leader.  The feedback is given via an online 1-1 coaching session with Jerry Hopkins to discuss the findings and agree the most beneficial training workshops and webinars.


The assessment is completed online by yourself and up to 6 colleagues, including your line manager and members of your team.

The 360 provides useful insights into areas for development as an engaging manager and recommendations for training workshops and lunchtime webinars, based on your individual strengths and gaps as a leader.

At the end each workshop you attend, you will commit to actions that to enhance your engaging leadership, which are reviewed at your 1-1 coaching session with Jerry Hopkins following the workshop.

Feedback from previous delegates

“I would just like to send a quick note to let you know how much I enjoyed attending the Engaging People Programme and how useful it has been to me.  The course has improved my focus on the vision and given me a real sense of purpose. The strategies, attitudes and course materials are tools that I come back to daily.”

“Very insightful day which allowed me to structure my thinking and apply it to the right areas (at the right time), and to reset some fundamental areas of management activities to give much clearer purpose. Through Jerry’s input I was able to unlock even more energy and engagement from what was already a high performing team. I highly recommend this course to anyone running a team.”
