To influence leadership and develop inspirational leaders

Effective leadership drives successful organisations;

and effective leaders know and control self to lead and enable others

The Leadership Trust approach skilfully blends theory with practice

to develop authentic, high performance leadership

A range of experiences and interventions that provide

the catalyst to stimulate behavioural change

Leadership is simple in concept, but not easy in practice

Welcome to The Leadership Trust.

We develop high performance teams through their people’s individual performance. We achieve this by enabling them to understand and adjust their behaviours in a way which releases the full potential of the whole team.

Our high impact development programmes have been designed for CEOs, directors, managers and all others with existing or indeed emerging leadership responsibility.

Our unique philosophy was born 40 years ago when David Gilbert-Smith a former Special Air Service Officer successfully blended the leadership lessons learnt by Military Special Forces personnel in testing conditions with an understanding of behavioural psychology and organisational development in civilian and commercial settings.

A core belief of the Leadership Trust is the importance of ‘winning hearts and minds to achieve a common purpose’. A sound plan will develop intellectual buy-in, and being credible will enable emotional buy-in, but combining the two is the winning leadership formula that we work with delegates to develop.

The Leadership Trust seeks new Trustees.
We are looking to welcome  skilled, passionate and committed trustees to help us shape the next 40 years of The Leadership Trust.
