Leadership and People Management Training  |  Nurturing a Growth Mindset

talonX recognises your leadership, and People Managers are the driving force of your organisation. We include Leadership and People Management training within the fractional HR Director service.

Leadership and people management roles often overlap but have distinct organisational focuses and functions.

Leadership is primarily about setting direction, inspiring, and motivating people. Leaders are typically seen as visionaries who articulate the organisation's vision, mission, and values.


They are the "why" because they provide the reason and purpose behind the work that needs to be done. They answer, "Why are we doing this?" and "Why is this important?" Leaders shape the culture and strategy and encourage innovation, growth, and change. Their role is more strategic and involves thinking about the future and what the organisation can become.

People Managers


People managers, often called line managers or supervisors, are the "how" because they manage the day-to-day activities. They translate the leader's vision into manageable tasks and ensure their teams execute them effectively. People managers are focused on operational efficiency, managing individual performance, developing their team's skills, and handling administrative tasks. They are often the ones who interact with employees daily, providing guidance, support, and feedback to help them perform their jobs well.


While leaders provide the strategic "why," the people managers provide the tactical "how." In an ideal organisational structure, leadership and people management roles are aligned; leaders set the direction, and managers mobilise resources and coordinate the workforce to follow that direction.


Both roles are essential, and in many cases, the same individual may need to exhibit leadership and management skills, especially in smaller or more agile organisations.


We offer comprehensive leadership and people management training that fosters a growth mindset. Our bespoke training programs equip leaders and managers with the skills to manage performance, inspire potential, and drive innovation.

Managing Potential Through Coaching


Our expert-led sessions delve into the art of coaching to manage potential, transforming traditional leadership approaches.


We enable leaders to identify and nurture the latent potential within their teams, guiding employees to achieve and exceed their developmental milestones.

Cultivating a Growth Mindset


We believe in the power of a growth mindset to catalyse change and propel progress.


Our training instils this mindset in leaders, enabling them to create environments where continuous learning, resilience, and adaptability are the cornerstones of success.

Motivating Dispersed Teams


Keeping teams motivated requires a nuanced approach in today’s increasingly remote and globally dispersed work environments.


talonX's training provides the tools and strategies to maintain high motivation levels, ensuring team members feel valued and integral to the organisation's success, regardless of location.

Harnessing Diversity and Driving Inclusion


Diversity within teams is a strength that, when managed effectively, can lead to unparalleled innovation and creativity.


Our training emphasises inclusive leadership practices that respect and harness the unique contributions of each team member.

Outcome-Based Training for Tangible Results


We focus on actionable insights and strategies that leaders can implement immediately.


Our training is designed for impactful outcomes, equipping leaders with the means to effectively manage and inspire their teams, aligning individual achievements with organisational goals.
