Leadership Development

We are privileged to have spent thousands of hours partnering with leaders on journeys of development.
They have come from all over the world, from a wide variety of industries. Some of the lessons we’ve learnt: 

• Too many leaders are good managers
• Organisations often constrain leaders rather than
  liberating them
• If there is no purpose, you will struggle to have an   impact. 

Our programmes are bespoke, designed specifically for you. They are often unconventional, disruptive, and require vulnerability to empower people to do the right thing.    

Leaders are the architects of the future. What type of future are you going to design?

Case Study
“What Akin and his team offer is very different to what many experience as part of a leadership development programme.  Their focus is on experiential learning rather than typical theory and classroom-based training.  AKD have partnered with us to challenge our approach and push the boundaries of our thinking to create and deliver a bespoke, innovative development programme for our leadership team.  The results have been truly inspirational and have left a lasting impact on all participants.”
