Lasting Leadership: equalities

The fourth and final part of the Lasting Leadership series is now available to download as a free, interactive PDF. Get yours below - and please share widely.
When we wrote the original guide in 2019, it felt controversial to say: ‘One day soon, we may be appalled at what was acceptable in early 21st century workplaces’.
How the world has changed. Or has it?
Read the blog, download the guide via the link below, and read on for more in-depth exploration of Lasting Leadership.

Lasting Leadership programme

We are now inviting applications for one of only 12 spaces on our next Lasting Leadership action learning programme.
The tailored programme develops leadership capacity, inspiring action on succession planning, lateral leadership, equalities and sustaining energy, focus and wellbeing.

'The opportunity to step back and reflect has been powerful. It’s given me a place to be vulnerable. You don’t get that elsewhere.'
'This group has given me a focus, I’m more intentional.'
'Valuable for validating – and challenging – what I think.'
