Our projects and programmes are as varied as the customer base, with resilience, advanced leadership, C-Suite team development, culture change, and creating high performing teams being just a few of the development areas covered.
Below are just a few examples of work we have done with some recent clients, either directly in an associate capacity.
We have been engaged with Highways England in a number of capacities since 2016. Most notable has been the design and delivery of the ongoing culture transformation programme, focusing on different aspects of performance, including leadership mindset, purpose, engagement, ownership, and performance conversations across all 5,500 employees.
Aligned to this agenda have been specific interventions, working with executive and senior directors and their teams to enhance leadership capability and devolve power and decision making deeper into the organisation.
The incredible success story of Bauder in the UK has seen exponential growth in year on year sales, £6m to over £60m in less than a decade. As a strong values-led company, investment in people has underpinned their success story and led to our involvement in supporting their continued ambition by developing resilient leaders – people not only resilient in themselves but able to lead their people in more resilient and sustainable performance.
Geographical challenges meant that all development work with Kimberly Clark has been run online since 2018 through a series of short (2.5 hr) ‘Discovery Sessions’ where a single theme is explored and applied to the individual’s circumstances. Online collaborative tools and video conferencing have been used to great effect, leading to repeat engagements on increasingly complex topics.
After an initial organisation analysis phase, we were invited to design and deliver the advanced management programme for this client, developing the leadership capability of an extremely intelligent and technically focused set of senior leaders in the organisation.
Through a seven-day, programme, spread over three modules leaders have developed both mindset and practical skills to ensure they are well placed to respond and lead in the Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous (VUCA) world in which we all work. With the onset of COVID-19, the programme migrated from a face-to-face set of workshops to a series of online and blended activities.
GSK’s drive to deliver products to help people do more, feel better and live longer has created a focused and hungry environment where teams are continually seeking out new ways to achieve their vision.
Over the years, Latent Capability has been involved in the design and delivery of a number of workshops in various parts of the business, in the UK, Europe and the US. Topics range from strategic deep dives with the Coaching Centre of Excellence, R&D team reviews and focus sessions, through to establising new senior IT leadership teams at the start of their new journey together.
Henry Boot invited us to design a series of short workshops designed to give bite-sized learning opportunities to staff from all parts of the business. Programme design was accompanied with a detailed learning handbook for participants to cement learning and provide a future reference resource. As complete ‘stand alone’ packages, these workshops were then available for internal or external facilitators to pick up and deliver.

“Roger’s leadership, persistence and energy place PCS solidly on the path to building the organisation that can deliver our vision. Every PCS LT member commented that our organisation has changed in the last 12 months. The breakthrough was our August face to face meeting where Roger led us in taking the time to get to know one another as individuals and improving our effectiveness as a team. The key to this success was deciding what we owned as a team. That decision led to work to define improvements required for us to be successful…”
