Hello, we’re Ellen and Greg, the people behind the People Development Company. Based in Halifax, West Yorkshire, we help clients across the UK with their leadership and management needs. Simply put, we love helping businesses get outstanding results through great leadership.
With combined experiences of great (and not so great) leadership gained across a diverse range of roles, organisations and sectors we have seen first-hand the impact poor leadership and management can have. Getting it wrong often leaves staff feeling demotivated and disengaged, despite the best of intentions.
As leaders, we can sometimes think that we have to behave a certain way to be successful, when in fact strong teams are built on truth, honesty and – dare we say it – vulnerable leadership. Imagine the difference it could make if you and your colleagues were able to identify, explore and make best use of your strengths whilst aligning performance with the goals of your organisation. Working together with our clients to understand what truly makes the difference to organisational performance has led us to the firm belief that successful leaders are genuine leaders. It was on this foundation that the People Development Company was formed.
We also want to make sure we practice what we preach and have committed to our own ongoing professional development. For this reason, Ellen is currently taking a lead on the day-to-day running of the People Development Company while Greg studies law to allow us to broaden the services we offer to our clients in the future. If you contact us, it’s likely you’ll work with Ellen – with Greg working hard behind the scenes in the short-term.
