Results:

  A high calibre leadership development and executive coaching offer created and available for senior managers in Uganda and other parts of Africa, available for an open and in-house programme basis

To date, three cohorts of more confident and enthusiastic leaders in a variety of Ugandan organisations including oil and gas, Parliament, banking, financial services and manufacturing

Longer term evaluation demonstrates that participants are increasing their work performance and career progression.

I would recommend the SparkSync "Growing Your Leadership Edge" course to anybody who is in a leadership position, this would enable them evaluate the way they are leading and enable them consider the important aspects of improving their leadership and more importantly the way they relate to their workmates.

"Since I attended the SparkSync Leadership Programme, I have become a better team player and leader to my team as I listen more to my colleagues’ side of the story. This has benefited the department and the bank at large, since we are able to work better as a team and are therefore more productive."

The client:

 What we created:

Gill How together with Duncan Mutembani from SparkSync worked together to understand local needs and from this create a bespoke leadership programme for emerging leaders in Kampala, Uganda. We created, marketed and delivered an open programme to a range of organisations, running the programme three times at four monthly intervals in the first year. Feedback was highly positive and the progression of participants impressive. Following the pandemic, we are now in the process of moving to a new programme format and expanding our range of services to offer executive coaching too.

 The client prompt:

SparkSync held an ambition to offer high quality leadership development to ambitious professionals in Africa and was looking for a high calibre, experienced partner with whom they could form a collaboration. On hearing Gill speak at an event about Bid Leadership, a connection was made to explore working together and the collaboration began.
