What our programme achieved

The team at Lighthouse has told us they achieved 3 key outcomes:


Leveling up the team

The Lighthouse team has become even more high-performing. Everyone learns the same skills so there’s a clear expectation of what best practices are.


More confidence with clients

The team feels empowered to push for what they believe in. They’ve got the tools to have difficult conversations and get people around to their way of thinking.


Improved internal relationships

With everyone learning about themselves and each other, there’s a greatly increased understanding of how to best communicate and work with each other.

For Lighthouse, the Team Sterka programme is empowering, enlightening and impactful. It’s a chance for them to offer something totally unique to their team. They’ve seen a noticeable improvement in meeting effectiveness, presentations and communication skills.

What happened

Dan Gent (Director & Founder) received an email invitation to one of our taster sessions. He attended along with his co-founder, Tom Johnson. The process was:

  1. Dan was interested because he’d never seen a learning programme packaged up this way. He was keen to invest in the team to support business growth.
  2. He signed up the entire Lighthouse team to our client leadership programme. This meant that everyone went through it together and had a shared experience.
  3. We onboarded the Lighthouse team. We demonstrated an understanding of their world so as to get the whole team motivated about doing the programme.
  4. We completed our first programme with the team, engaging with them throughout to keep engagement levels high.
  5. Lighthouse continues to enrol new joiners on our programme. This continually levels up team members.
