Your people need real development experiences that enable them to change. We focus on core leadership capabilities that every company needs.

Real leadership. Lasting results.

We’ve worked with thousands of leaders, across industries, to create real results and raise the level of leadership. Below are some examples of the companies we’ve worked with, and how we’ve partnered to produce meaningful change in their organizations.

Drove performance conversations with 4000+ managers. Raised productivity 8.92% and £60.9 in measured cost savings.

Sparked a new level of teamwork and innovation, driving manufacturing cycle times down from 5-6 months to 21 days.

Leaders we’ve challenged. What they say.

General Manager

“My session with Cambridge was the most uncomfortable I’ve ever been in a training to this day (kudos.) That experience was a very important catalyst for self-awareness for me that helped propel me to where I am today.”

Senior Manager

“Most leadership training provides incremental change. Cambridge programs provided monumental change. Change in retention, self- and employee- satisfaction, and performance across the board.”

Change Leader

– British Telecom

“My change initiative represents hundreds of millions and is critical to the way we do business. I worked hard, in the program and after, to change the way I was leading and interacting with people. The change initiative has now taken hold in our unit and we are three months ahead of schedule.”

Senior Leader

“This is the way we should be running our business.  If we were more leadership minded and more collaborative, we could achieve phenomenal results.”
