Leadership Development

Develop the competence and confidence to lead others effectively and harness the potential of teams. We use the Big 5 – intention, awareness, mindset, inclusion and communication – leadership principles to provide a framework that builds your personal agency and capability.

Leadership theory and activities are delivered via five learning modules over five months. Follow-up coaching embeds these learnings and supports you to implement them in the workplace.

“Leaders who promote psychological safety are able to liberate the potential within their teams and harness the power of collective intelligence.”


Introducing the Big 5

Leadership Horsepower has been delivering leadership development across the globe in a variety of environments and cultures for over 20 years. During that time we have identified 5 Principles that will stand any leader in good stead to execute their role and to liberate the potential of their teams.

We call these principles, the Big 5! Why?

If you have ever been to Africa, you will know that out on Safari, the aim is to spot and identify with the Big 5 – Lion, Elephant, Leopard, Rhino and Buffalo. If you are lucky enough to see all of those 5, then your experience of the flora and fauna is markedly improved.

The metaphor in the Big 5 Leadership principles is similar. If you get the 5 principles correct, you can set yourself and others up for success. The uniqueness of your leadership will come down to everything you do in between, your nature, personality and unique gifts.
