Bespoke Leadership Development Programme

The Client & Their Needs

This Scottish charity had gone through significant change over the previous year with new managers being introduced to a well-established senior team.
They felt that there was a need to enhance leadership capabilities and asked McKinney HR to support them with this.
The charity had financial and resource challenges, so we had to balance content with availability and affordability.



After discussion on the specific needs of the charity we tailored our leadership development programme to fit the needs of the business and individuals, as well as financial restraints.
This programme was delivered using a mix of online and where appropriate on a face-to-face basis.


The programme consisted of the following:

  • Introductory one to one meeting with all participants to share the proposed programme, explore expectations and build trust.
  • Workshop 1 for all looking at what a great leadership team would look and feel like, confirm expectations, and introduce Myers Briggs (MBTI) etc.
  • MBTIs undertaken and one to one feedback given.
  • Workshop 2 for all reflecting on MBTI outcomes and working effectively as a leader.
  • Coaching sessions for all members of the group supporting them to address gaps in leadership skills.
  • Workshop 3 for all which concentrated on working in the leadership team.
  • Coaching sessions for all members of the group concentrating on team style and development needs.
  • Evaluation.


This programme was undertaken over a period of six months and feedback from the client was that they were happy that the senior team were developing into an effective leadership team.
