Why learn about Values, Culture or the Psychology of Leadership?

Like it or not, your success in business is heavily dependent on your ability to interact successfully with other people.  The nature of the interaction is obviously specific to your particular role and profession, but if you can’t get what you want from other people, you’re always going to struggle to get ahead.

At senior levels in business, your success depends not only on building productive relationships, but also on creating an environment where other people can succeed.  If you can cement a culture that brings out the best in your people, everything else will be easier.  Obviously, this doesn’t happen by accident and it can be hard to know where to start, especially if you have no way of describing the culture that exists or the culture you want.

At Brilliant Minds, we specialise in practical applications of Psychology that can be used to articulate the specifics of organisational culture and then to create a detailed plan of leadership actions and behaviour that fit into the everyday working routine but over time will develop the culture you desire.

If this appeals to you…

Join us for our ‘Taster Day’ on Values, Culture and the Psychology of Leadership.  It’s designed to give you an overview of the tools we use to build successful, sustainable, responsible organisations.  Starting with our model of Leadership – created through systematic analysis of what followers want in a leader – and using it to provide insight into the leadership culture of your organisation we then focus on values and how to identify the real values driving the culture.  Often they’re not what you think! We then move onto individual values and how to make the connection between a person’s own values and those of their employer.  The day concludes with an introduction to the Language and Behaviour (LAB) Profile and how it can be used in culture change programmes.

The difference between Values and Beliefs and why it matters

An introduction to the Language and Behaviour (LAB)Profile

The keys to working with organisational culture to achieve the changes you want



The Language and Behaviour (LAB) Profile

The LAB Profile is a set of 14 questions which form the basis of a profile interview conducted by an expert interviewer.  The questions are constructed to highlight the patterns of communication and behaviour favoured by the interviewee in a specific context and enables the interviewer to predict certain patterns of behaviour arising from the profile.

The LAB Profile is not a personality profile.  It provides insight into a person’s style and preferences in a particular context and is therefore particularly useful for Senior Teams, where the style required of a person as leader of their own division, department or team may not be wholly effective when they are working with their peers as part of the leadership team.

The LAB Profile can also be used to create a specific, behavioural description of team or organisational culture and the styles to encourage in building or reinforcing that culture.

Some thoughts and reports


The venues

Our first date is a Saturday at the Ettington Park Hotel near Stratford-upon-Avon.  It’s a grand Neo-Gothic mansion set in 40 acres of parkland.  This might be perfect for you if you’re based in the Midlands or if you want to have a relaxing weekend in Warwickshire as well as joining our Taster Day.  It’s also easy to access from the M40, so if you prefer to do your travelling outside of the weekday traffic, come and join us at Ettington Park

The second date is a Thursday at the Runnymede Hotel located on the banks of the River Thames in the town of Egham, Surrey.  It’s close to junction 13 of the M25, conveniently accessible from many directions yet surrounded by spectacular English countryside.  This might be the perfect choice if you’re based in the London area or if you want to make our Taster day a part of your working week.
