The Boss Hat for your teams

“Your Managers hold the key to your business success”

The Boss Hat Programme gives your Leaders everything they need, to deliver the results you want.

Are your Managers:

  • Working in silo’s, and not really thinking about the overall business, but just their small part of it?
  • Micro-managing their teams?
  • Spending most of their time being re-active?
  • Not focusing on engaging their employees?
  • Not communicating effectively?
  • Not behaving in a consistent manner in keeping with your company values?
  • Not stepping up to being a manager?
  • Reluctant to give feedback or make a decision?

Are you wondering how you can bring them all up to speed easily in order to take the business to the next level?

“Barbara has worked with Hainsworth for the past 12 months developing our manufacturing leadership team. This has involved both designing and delivering a leadership development programme, but also coaching individuals and embedding the learning back into the organisation.

Throughout the whole process Barbara became an extension of the team, taking the time to understand our needs to ensure the programme was fit for purpose. She also remained flexible and was able to adapt depending on the requirements of the delegates and of the business throughout the programme.

Barbara is a highly passionate learning and development specialist who focuses at all times on making a difference and delivering practical solutions that add value.

During the next stages of our Company’s transformation programme, I fully expect to be engaging Barbara’s assistance again to help develop our leadership teams to hit new heights of performance.

I would certainly have no problem recommending Barbara to other organisations.”

Your Team Leaders and Managers are the first port of call for your employees, and if they’re not demonstrating the right behaviours and skills, this will drip feed throughout the entire company, which can, have an impact on: absence, labour turn over, performance, and overall employee engagement.However, it’s not all doom and gloom. Great leadership skills can be taught.

Here’s how it works…

The Full Programme consists of 5 workshops over a 5 month period and throughout that time you get full support on how to get the most out of it for your business, and for the managers attending.

Stage 1 – Success Meeting

This is where we agree what success looks like after the programme has completed so we all know where we’re heading and we all get all the information we need for the programme to be a success.

Stage 2 – Programme

5 workshops over a 5 month period. An outline of the content can be found below.

Stage 3 – Review

Regular review sessions will take place throughout the programme, so we can always tweak should we need to. We’ll always have one eye on embedding the learning and work in partnership with you to ensure this happens.


Programme Breakdown

Workshop 1 – One Team, One Vision
This workshop is a great starting point as it allows the group to bond together and to start thinking about the part they play and how that impacts on the wider team and the business as a whole. If you struggle with cliques or ‘I’m Alright, Jack!’ mentality this will put them to bed and form a great foundation to build on.

The group will also start to explore what leadership means to them and what that means u

Workshop 2 – Leadership starts with you
It’s natural to think of leadership as leading a team or leading a business, however, in this workshop we explore how to lead yourself. We’ll be looking at: systems; managing time; emotional intelligence and being a role model as well as a few other things along the way.

Workshop 3 – Using your habits
Throughout this workshop we’ll be exploring the daily habits of a leader. In this workshop we’ll be going into depth about the importance of communication. How to listen, hold briefing sessions, be curious, and all about their body language.
Workshop 4 – Using your habits - part 2
This workshop is part 2 of using your habits and throughout this day we continue to explore how to get the best out of our teams. We will discuss: how to develop empowered teams, how to share and collaborate with other team members; and how to give and receive feedback among other things.
Workshop 5 – Growing a Team
During this final workshop we’ll be exploring how to get the most out of your team. How to grow successful teams, how to delegate effectively and the benefits to doing this, and how to empower individuals to succeed.
