Services | Forge Leadership


we offer

How do we do it ?

Our services are bespoke, focused and intentionally work for maximum impact. They can include a mixture of 1-1 coaching, leadership team coaching, away days, strategy sessions or in depth week long programmes.

Simon is a sought after motivational speaker and many assignments start with him speaking and motivating teams towards a higher level of personal responsibility for their personal leadership development

Across all of our services, our focus on the inner life of a leader and leading yourself first make us different in our approach. This is not about you climbing a professional capacity ladder and getting more and more responsibility, it’s about you climbing the character ladder and consistently working on who you are.

Everything else flows from there. Click on the sections below to expand the specific services.

Culture Development

Is your culture aligned with your vision and strategy ?

If not then how do you go about changing the culture of your organisation ?

At Forge Leadership we believe that your culture is led from the top and is often defined by the greatest thing you celebrate and the worst thing you allow to happen.

Identifying these can often be the start to culture transformation.

We will work with you to identify your current culture through a Culture Review, identify where you want to get to in terms of your Cultural Vision and then work with you and your whole organisation collaboratively to identify the values, behaviours, symbols, events and rhythms that will embed that culture in day to day life.

Strategy Development

Do you know your why?

Not the how and the what, but the why?

Can you articulate it well and succinctly? We often find that strategies fail because vision is poorly articulated.

We will take you through a process of “end visioning” that sharpens your vision, helps you to see it in all its glory and depth and then works through a disciplined approach to creating the organisational steps to strategy development.

Strategy Execution

Do you have a great strategy, but it’s just not being implemented well?

Are your people, processes and systems totally aligned for effective execution of your strategy?

Are your people grasping the strategy? Are behaviours aligned with the strategy? Are you seeing evidence of fruit from the strategy? Is the strategy fully effective?

We use a set of powerful tools to identify blockages in systems, processes and people to effective Strategy Execution. Working collaboratively with your team we will identify blockages and remedies, identify critical lead measures so that you can motivate to achieve and ensure that strategy is delivering all it promised to when you presented it to your board.

Bespoke Working with Senior Teams

Is your team firing on all cylinders or are relational, trust and effective team work issues a constant challenge ?

Whether you need your team to be fully effective in developing a new strategy, implementing an existing one, tackling cost reduction or driving for growth, Forge Leadership has years of experience of getting the best out of diverse and complex teams.

Work with us and see greater levels of motivation and contribution as levels of trust, commitment and buy in soar. Using tried and tested tools we apply them as well as our emotional intelligence to design a bespoke approach that will work for you. What are you waiting for. Get in touch !

Leadership Coaching

We are all different and no season of life is the same.

That’s why we tailor our coaching to each specific person and situation.

This can be transitional coaching, core value coaching, new venture coaching as well as life purpose coaching to people who are working in all spheres of business.

Coaching can be a series of weekly sessions, an intensive 2 day facilitation or simply a few targeted conversations.

We offer an initial free consultation to listen to your situation and discus what might work best for you.

We are confident that together we can help you find clear and positive ways forward. 

Reach out and contact us for an initial conversation.
