Front Line Leaders Programme

John Dennis Coachbuilders is the UK leader in the design and build of vehicle bodies for the UK Fire Service, Community, Health and Safety services. We were engaged to design and deliver a tailored bite-sized Front Line Leaders Programme to fit around their busy production schedule. Our focus was on helping them improve their key operational measures and quality levels through an applied learning approach. We are proud to say that it led to significant improvements in morale, employee engagement and production performance.

"Following the tailored workshops delivered by Cultivate Talent each Production Manager and Team Leader was better equipped to undertake the role they had been promoted into. They understood their job responsibilities, were better equipped and more motivated to achieve the goals set for them. Each Manager and Team Leader were then able to manage their team much more effectively, improve their management of individual team members and also take ownership of each production build. As a result we found that both the quality and productivity improved, the target build hours were reduced by an average of 12% and the quality build snags reduced by an average of 8%"

"I had the pleasure of working through a senior leadership program with Adrian’s coaching and mentorship. From the first meeting I was struck by Adrian’s energy and passion as well as his uncanny ability to get straight to the heart of the matter under discussion. I particularly appreciated the way he rooted out and insisted on dealing with uncomfortable realities when necessary. His knowledge and understanding of leadership theory and practice are extensive and he is able to apply the same easily in fluid situations. Adrian also supported some of my staff in related leadership programs and the feedback I have matches my own experience. I strongly recommend Adrian as a change and leadership facilitator, trainer and coach."
