The Foundation Programme for Change Leaders

The Workplace Innovation Foundation Programme provides you with in-depth understanding of how to be an effective leader, inspiring and empowering your people to achieve great performance by realising their full potential.

We’d love to help you grow as an inspiring change leader, and the accredited Foundation Programme is a great place to start. You may be seeking to make a real impact at work by gaining new leadership skills and enhancing your personal development. You may also want to develop your career or improve your competitiveness in the jobs market with your internationally recognised ILM Level 5 Award in Leadership and Management.

Our Programmes draw on great thinking, robust evidence and practical experience from some incredibly exciting workplaces in many different countries. And you get individual support to translate your new learning into practice.

The Foundation Programme provides you with in-depth understanding of how to enhance business performance and employee wellbeing, and how you as an effective change leader can inspire, engage and empower your people.

And, for a limited period, you’ll receive a 20% discount on signing up (just quote WIFP02). That’s great value for a Programme that offers you so much!

You’ll gain knowledge, skills and practical tools that can deliver real change
– and achieve an internationally recognised ILM Level 5 Award in Leadership and Management.

Thank you for your interest in our Foundation Programme. If you want to develop your abilities as a leader driving really positive change forward in your organisation, then you’ve come to the right place!

I’ve spent most of the last thirty years helping people create high performing workplaces that are also great places to work, where people realise their full potential. We call this ‘Workplace Innovation’ – a concept we created with our European partners – and are proud that it has become a powerful movement of business leaders stretching across the world, and recognised by governments in a growing number of countries. We’re proud too of our great team, who share the passion for making Workplace Innovation happen!
