At the core of every high performing organisation you’ll find inspirational leaders.

In today’s changing world, many, if not all aspects of leadership now require a more informed, collaborative approach to shape capability, create direction, inspire trust and lead organisations and their people into the future.

True leaders are evaluated by a combination of achievement, the trust they engender and the systems they implement to ensure long-term success.

Often assessed by their ability to define clear purposes and unleash the unique contribution of each member of their workforce toward those objectives.

Understanding this, Optimality implements the latest thinking in leadership, management and coaching methodologies with a selection of modular programmes to meet your business needs.

The Optimality model of High Performance Leadership modules will unlock your organisation’s human asset potential by supporting managers and leaders to overcome their obstacles and develop themselves. Getting the leadership style, culture and behaviours right will drive engagement, bring out the best in people and result in increased performance throughout your organisation.

Happy Clients

“Another superb Optimality course!! Leaving here feeling motivated and eager to put into practice the things I can apply immediately, and to think about the procedural and strategic changes I want to make in my team.

Fantastic… Absolutely specific, relevant, good fun, informative and very helpful.”

Managing Consultant, CACI

“Fantastic experience – would 100% recommend. The session helped me understand my development areas and has given me the confidence to ensure I have the difficult conversations I would normally avoid.

10/10 – best training we have ever had! Fantastic course, really enjoyed.”

Senior Business Development Telesales Manager, Iris

“Professional, relevant, timely. I think I speak for us all when I say that the training was extremely useful and we have all taken a lot away which hopefully we can successfully action within our departments!

My goal was to feel more confident managing conflict and leading excellence. I feel I have been well equipped for this.”

Head of Channel Sales, Smoothwall

“Surpassed expectations. Very detailed and related it to actual situations that happen.

The most amazing, beneficial course I have ever done! Thank you so much.”

Sales Manager, Iris

“A fantastic 2 days which will ultimately be a great source for our development as managers/leaders.

The depth of the Optimality courses always exceeds any expectations we may have. Extremely beneficial.”

Professional Services Team Leader, CACI

“Optimality supported us in implementing new performance management tools and creating a bespoke Sales Excellence Academy programme to drive the business forward.

They approached the task we set with a vision of long term and ensured we achieved buy-in from all of our managers.

The consultants tailored every conversation and example to be applicable specifically to us which has resulted in the managers believing they are part of the change not following pre-set instructions.

Definitely recommend the expertise and energy Optimality has to offer!”

Group HR Manager, Parts Alliance

“I have found the entire process with Optimality thoroughly engaging and thought provoking. Sarah has a fantastic personality which encourages you to assess your own practices and understand how these can be adopted to enhance your own coaching style, all in a jovial but professional environment.

With a highly accurate DISC profile, this added credibility to the sessions which presented me with information I probably knew about myself but was now in a position to act and improve on certain ingrained behaviours.

I would and already have recommended the training with Sarah and Optimality to others wanting to improve coaching throughout their organisation.”

National Sales Manager, Smoothwall

“During the sessions, Sarah was able to validate the way in which I coach and prompt where adaptations could be made. Having someone assess but understand you is rare and Sarah achieves this without any hesitation.

I would highly recommend these sessions to anyone, whether they are confident of their current approach or not as the focus can be shifted to suit.

Many thanks to Sarah for this and I am sure we will work together again with the rest of my team in the near future.”

National Sales Manager, Smoothwall

“Exceeded expectations.  It covered all the aspects I had mentioned I was struggling with.

The sessions really helped me in identifying my strengths as a manager and also, how I can address my current development areas – implementing the learning styles into my coaching and mentoring sessions to ensure I address both the activists and reflectors in my team to achieve best performance.

Fun, enjoyable, insightful.  I would highly recommend the sessions; the techniques learnt are so valuable to managing people and some areas/techniques I would have never thought of but will be so simple to implement and will be so effective – very beneficial and eye-opening.”
