LEADing by Example

Lead Education and Development’s team are at the centre of change in an organisation. We know that the most complex aspect of any training programme that we deliver will be affecting ‘people change’. We will ensure that we have a team with a core set of skills who can deliver this. At LEAD we are committed to providing clients with the highest standards of service and take immense pride in our team by hiring the best in the business.

Our coaches are change management and people experts. They deliver to the highest standard and are specialists in Lean Six Sigma, Kaizen and other Continuous Improvement/Change Management techniques. However, we know it’s how we apply these learnings and the tools and techniques we teach, which adds the most value to our clients.

What sets us apart is the way that we engage with people and support them through their journey. Our values, our desire to succeed and our ability to quickly adapt to the ever evolving challenges which businesses face, has allowed us to build an enviable track record of delivering major business benefits to businesses across the United Kingdom, and all over the world.
