Talent development


Volkswagen Financial Services UK required a development programme for selected senior leaders to support their successful assessment and gateway through to Director level or equivalent positions within the organisation.


The business was looking for growth in levels of Emotional Intelligence, leadership presence and impact, delivered in an innovative, challenging and experiential format.


Partnering with the organisation we tailored the already successful IL® Programme to ensure it sat alongside the assessment process and supported the participants with the required behavioural development cohort by cohort.


Over the past 2 years 30 leaders have completed the LeadEQ IL® Programme, with 100% success rate through their gateway assessments and have all since gone onto subsequent promotions or role growth.


Following the success of IL®, we have now been asked to develop a pipeline programme for Senior Management High Potential individuals within the same business, who will at a later date join an IL® cohort.


  • Support their Personal development Journey
  • Deepen levels of emotional intelligence
  • Increase Leadership Impact
  • Unlock previously undiscovered leadership capability
  • Strengthen Leadership skills and organisational influence

Our process

We tailored the already successful IL® programme using the IL® Model as the backbone. The programme centred around 3 modules of experiential learning, one for each of the elements of the model; Trust, Connection & Engagement and Followership. We partnered closely with our sponsor to ensure the programme adapted and continued throughout the global pandemic and beyond. The programme now encompasses virtual, real-time application and experiential learning.
