In January 2014, 13 delegates from Amarisk clients attended a two-day Team Leader Level Action-Centred Leadership course Staged at the Land Rover Experience Centre at Awliscombe near Honiton and based on the work of Professor John Adair, the course covered the theory of ACL, reinforced with challenging exercises and a focus on real life work issues.

It was delivered by Trevor Vanstone of Amarisk Ltd, a trainer accredited by Adair International and registered to deliver leadership and management training through the Government’s Growth Accelerator service.

Action-Centred Leadership is based on the functions of leadership – what you actually have to do to achieve the task, enhance the team and develop individuals. Courses run for between 5 and 15 delegates and organisations taking part in the Growth Accelerator service can qualify for 50% matched funding. Contact for more details.

“Just to say that I thought the leadership course was excellently delivered. The main reason for me attending the course was to improve my confidence but as well as helping there, it also opened my eyes to other areas of our workplace in respect to how I manage.

“The course has helped me to focus more on team building. I have always believed in dealing with individuals as a way of getting the job done. Since the course I have made better use of my meetings with my department heads and I have introduced meetings with all the staff at the beginning of each month. I have already received great feedback from the changes I am making.”
