ILM Business Improvement

The Brief:

Inspire were asked by the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) to design a programme on Business Improvement for their members. ILM’s brief focused on their members learning new skills, and ideas, receiving practical solutions to their problems and challenges, and taking away a sense of inspiration.

The Programme:

Improving business relies on your expert leadership, and the quality of your people. However many leaders leave this to instinct and luck. Inspire showed how putting leadership and people at the heart of an organisation accelerates business improvement and improves the bottom line.

Through seven workshops across the UK, we introduced the Lumina Spark Personality Portrait. This detailed 38 page portrait was given to participants, providing a memorable and jargon free insight into their personality. This provided a practical method for how participants could work more effectively with colleagues, clients and stakeholders, and how it could accelerate learning.

The workshop was interactive and fun, and participants left with new and practical solutions to developing their leadership and people through:

  • Understanding their persona and how to use that to improve their business
  • Tools to make them a better client manager, boss and colleague
  • Improved teamwork across their organisation
  • Ability to speed read clients and colleagues so they can rapidly adapt, connect and sell to them.

“It’s excellent how Steven made the participants consider key factors about improving their business in a lively, animated and engaging way.”

Gaynor Lewis, Director of Business Development, ILM
