LEAD Consultancy

Leadership, Empowerment & Development
Invest in yourself and your people

Lead Consultancy is passionate about helping you achieve your full potential and assisting your organisation grow and succeed. We offer a range of services designed to help you and your organisation grow, becoming the best it can be.

Having over 20 years' experience working as a senior leader, across partners from the public, private and voluntary sectors we have a wealth of knowledge and evidence. We offer coaching and mentoring to individuals and teams, as well as promotion packages to help you plan and reach your potential.

We can deliver comprehensive reviews of activity, and partnership working with training and experience of delivering reviews such as Domestic Homicide Reviews and Safeguarding Adults Reviews. Having chaired 4 different Community Safety Partnerships and numerous Safeguarding Adult's and Children's Boards, we understand the pressures and demands of multi-agency working.

We have developed a wellbeing and communication model (SORT-IT) which teaches people how to take responsibility for their health and wellbeing, along with how to have difficult conversations. This has been developed with a counselling psychologist and is making a real difference to individuals and leaders. Early intervention is always the best solution and difficult and challenging conversations are often avoided, even by senior leaders.

Corporate planning providing clarity to your organisation is essential, and we help create a vision and strategy, then actively support you to plan and reach the outcomes you want to achieve. Having delivered cultural and performance change across partnerships, we have a proven track record of success and getting the outstanding performance we all strive for.  

Corporate Planning

Here at Lead Consultancy, we can help you create a vision and a strategy, then assist you in developing and implementing plans to generate the success your organisation deserves. Clarity of where you are going and how to get there is essential for everyone.

Wellbeing & Communication Model

Helping you and your organisation look after well-being and improve communication. Our SORT-IT model will enhance your activity and teach you how to take responsibility for your well-being, and how to have difficult conversations.

Coaching & Mentoring

We can offer coaching and mentoring to executives, individuals or teams, and make it bespoke to your needs. Having a mentor can make all the difference to achieving your goals and reaching your full potential. Individuals we have mentored have seen exceptional results and created lasting impacts.


We deliver reviews of organisational activity, including Domestic Homicide Reviews (DHRs), Safeguarding Adults Reviews (SARs), and Partnership Plans. A culture of learning is essential in driving continuous improvement, either individually or organisation wide, and it is with that ethos that our reviews deliver.

Promotion Preparation

Invest in yourself and maximise your potential with good promotion preparation. We deliver training in interviewing and presentation skills, providing methods and structures to showcase your skills, and the values by which you operate. The results are exception and leave a significant impression on how you operate as a leader.
