Supporting and developing leaders and leadership teams


“One can never consent to creep when one feels the impulse to soar.”

Helen Keller

Creating invaluable development spaces

Finding time out of time

The changing world of work increasingly means feeling confident in building and leading a high trust environment; trusting your people to deliver on their objectives no matter where they are working.

To deliver a high trust environment the emerging leadership gold standard is the emotional intelligent leader; able to inspire, motivate and lead whilst not always being fully present; able to work with people who now look to their organisations to provide autonomy, mastery and purpose (Daniel Pink, Drive). 

Leadership is about people now more than ever and being able to use and enhance your emotional intelligence. To do this we need time for personal development and growth, as well as time for reflection and thinking, to excel at what we do. However, for leaders this can be tricky, finding time out of time in this ever changing, fast paced world can seem impossible. However, we also know that investing in this time pays real dividends not only for ourselves but for those we lead, and for the enhanced performance of the organisation.

At Élan we support senior leaders, and leadership teams, through Leadership Thinking Spaces and bespoke development programmes that are wholly designed for your needs and maximise the precious time you put aside.  

We understand that personal growth at a leadership level often comes through personal reflection and self-directed learning. With this in mind, our executive coaching together with bespoke development programmes provide an environment to support this whilst also offering tailored content relevant to your organisational needs.

Leadership is also about the leadership team and a key aspect of leadership development is developing as a senior leadership team. Here we offer Leadership Thinking Spaces. Where executive coaching provides leaders with personal professional development time, Leadership Thinking Space provides the same for teams.

Leadership Thinking Spaces

In this fast paced and ever changing world leaders may find they only connect to talk about strategic and organisational issues, rarely making time for themselves.

We create Leadership Thinking Spaces for leaders to connect with peers and talk, reflect and explore experiences, issues and areas that are on their mind. We do this for leadership teams as well as leadership groups.
