The messages leaders send virtually and in person are essential to creating a positive and productive atmosphere.
“Leadership doesn’t just refer to people at the top – we need to stop thinking of it in this way.” says John Yates, Group Director at ILM. Leadership exists at multiple levels throughout a variety of organisational sizes. Providing individuals with the right set of skills is vital in order to promote an inspirational management style which can generate higher levels of productivity that cascades across the organisation – ILM report that, 74% of professionals mirror the leadership styles of their colleagues.
It is not a surprise to read that, according to the Gallup Organisation, nearly 70% of employees are actively disengaged at work and CareerBuilder note that 58% of managers say that they haven’t received any formal management training.
Ensure your leaders have the right experience and training to create a motivational and engaging leadership culture. By investing in your team, you will empower them to drive productivity and performance within your organisation.
93% of employers say that their managers perform better after taking an ILM qualification.

I always struggled in school as I wasn’t very academic, so knew learning on the job would be a better option for me. I would find it difficult to get up for 9am but now I wake up and look forward to my day. I wanted to try a hair apprenticeship as I’ve always been interested in hairdressing, and by the end of the first week, I already loved it!
I have developed a range of new skills through work including the technical, industry skills required for the job, to personal development such as ensuring I am always on time. The biggest change since leaving school is adjusting to the independence you gain from earning a salary. My advice to anyone thinking of doing an apprenticeship would be find what you like doing, and go for it!
Since starting the apprenticeship, I’ve become far more confident. In a classroom, you only interact with your classmates, but through working you develop your people skills as you interact with customers on a daily basis. At school, you are closely monitored and parented, however I am now more independent and feel grown up
The most important thing I’ve learnt since leaving school is that there are other routes to success than just academia. I failed my GCSEs, as I never suited the school environment. Now though, I’m really enjoying my apprenticeship as I’ve discovered I learn more through hands-on practice.
I would just like to thank you and your team for all the amazing work they do, you have provided me with the most invaluable experience which has helped to pave the way of my future. The work you do for young people is incredible!
