Leadership development

Creating leaders to drive lasting transformational change

Through in-depth interviews, simulations and progressive assessment techniques we build a holistic understanding of each leader’s aspirations, skills, personality and values. The insight gathered is crucial for any organisation looking to recruit, promote, develop and retain talent.

We understand how leaders are shaped by their experiences, their environment, and their mentors and role models. Our approach is built on sophisticated use of benchmarking and assessment data. Drawing on behavioural science, we then tailor our interventions to develop more rounded, higher-achieving top talent. Crucially, we equip leaders with the capabilities and skills to thrive in an unpredictable new world of work.  

Formerly part of Wickland Westcott, our leadership development team was established over 40 years ago. Our focus remains on the goals and outcomes you want to achieve as an organisation. The sophistication of our approach magnifies the likelihood of the achievement against those goals through clear and effective leadership aligned to organisational values and culture.

Executive coaching for success

At New Street Consulting Group, we’re passionate about coaching. We believe in helping individuals at their very best, applying our psychological understanding, commercial insight and leadership experience to provide the support people need to bring their own unique blend of talents to life. Our strength lies in the breadth of experience coaches we have available and the commercial focus they possess. 

Leadership development services

High-potential development

We partner with organisations to identify and develop their next generation of leaders to ensure a strong talent pipeline for the future. Gaining access to these individuals at an early stage in their career means we can help them take ownership for their development and understand how to maximise their experiences and learning.

Leadership model design

We work with organisation to understand their challenges and future direction to define the requirements of leaders to deliver business success. We create leadership models and competency frameworks that are tailored to each organisation yet validated by our global research and data on high performance leadership.


Our proprietary database updated every month, contains anonymous information on over 4,000 executives. We leverage this data to provide clients with a relevant norm against which we can compare individual leaders or combined leadership populations. Benchmarks can be built into individual participant reports as well as organisational analysis. This offers an additional lens through which we can identify potential gaps against the wider market and risk to future success.

Board effectiveness

Rather than regarding it as a necessary compliance obligation, it is important that boards obtain real value from their evaluation process. We use robust and innovative approaches to produce genuine insight, fresh perspective and actionable outcomes. Our goal is to conduct an honest evaluation, using our psychological expertise to listen deeply, and to observe the real tone, fabric and rhythm of each board we advise.
