7 game-changing skills

Based on the core principle of self-mastery, we offer your emerging talent a powerful new style of personal and professional development

Built around 7 transformational leadership and life skills, our programmes develop the behaviours your future leaders need most. We call them the Ivy House 7 and all of our programmes are built around them.

Leadership coaching at its best

We’ve seen it before; a list of skills and information is taught to delegates who dutifully write it down in a notebook, only to put that notebook in a draw and never look at it again once the programme is over.

Ivy House programmes couldn’t be more different.

We have assembled an incredible team, comprising leadership and behavioural change specialists and some of the most senior leadership and life coaches in the country, to deliver deeply transformational coaching and development that creates deep-seated change.

Through 1:1, small group and peer-to-peer coaching sessions, we truly delve into leadership development on a deeper level than most people ever experience throughout their career – at a time when it can have the biggest impact.

This is leadership development at its best.

Challenging? Yes. Transformational? Absolutely.

Our core programmes

We’re able to deliver our core award-winning programmes as in-house solutions. These can be run as ‘off-the-shelf’ programmes, or completely tailored to meet your organisation’s needs. This may mean changing the way they are delivered, adding job-shadowing opportunities or building in context coaching. We will also work with you to build an internal support mechanism, that means you experience maximum benefit from your investment.


Life Leader is our 100% virtual programme, bringing game-changing leadership and life skills development to every part of your organisation.

Created in a way that means it’s affordable at scale, flexible and incredibly effective, it provides access to the very best learning, delivered by the most senior life and leadership coaches in the country. It gives your people them the knowledge, skills and confidence to lead themselves and others… now and in the future.

Who it’s for:

  • Early-in-career talent
  • Post grad programme delegates

  • First-line team leaders
  • Project leads


Our flagship programme, The Master Programme, is the ultimate solution for brightest talent.

Run over a 6-month period including masterclasses, group and 1:1 coaching, it’s our most in-depth programme, bringing the very best personal and professional development to your current and future leaders, in a way that delivers deep-seated change. This programme will turn your brightest talent into exceptional leaders who can drive forward your people, your business and your results.

Who it’s for:

The Graduate Programme

This is the ultimate programme for your graduates – offering award-winning leadership and life skills development, at a time when it can make the biggest difference.

Most grad programmes focus primarily on business context, technical competence and practical experience, with little time spent shaping the behaviours that will impact your culture and allow the individual to step up and lead themselves. Our programme brings the human skills that will shape your leaders of the future; the foundational skills that underpin everything – preparing your grads for their next step in your organisation.

How does it work?

Our in-house solution can work in 2 different ways – it
can sit within your existing graduate development programme, or as an off-boarding solution to support those transitioning to permanent roles within your organisation.

Designed as a ready-to-go but entirely flexible
solution, this is a unique programme run over 6-18 months that can fit easily within your existing development pathway, and be delivered in a way that works for your business.

“I absolutely love working with Ivy House! Their programmes are superior both in terms of quality of delivery and impact to the business. Having put a cohort of high potential females through the leadership programme, each individual has gone on to assume more senior positions with wider scopes of responsibility. It’s safe to say we now have some incredible female leaders who are driving our business forward in their own authentic way…and that’s due to Ivy House.”

Eleanor Bird, Senior People Partner, L&D, Go Cardless

“The Ivy House Programme is one of the highest value schemes I have come across. The calibre of the team, delegates and the programme itself blew me away. I highly recommend the Ivy House Programmes to any organisation who wants to take talent development seriously.”

Dale Thoroughgoood, Learning & Talent Development Manager, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer

“When looking for a partner to deliver our in-house emerging leader programme, Ivy House blew everyone else out of the water. Their knowledge of their audience, experiential approach and the level of support to embed the learning back into the business was unlike anything else out there. The Aviva Emerging Leader Programme is now by far the most successful and oversubscribed programme we run – and my proudest legacy.”

Bernadette Bruton, Global Talent and Organisational Development Director, Aviva

“I have received consistent feedback from our participants that The Programme is life-changing and, they are so grateful to be learning it now. On sharing their learning with their bosses and peers, they are now wishing they had learnt it years ago!”

Debbie Ash, Group VP Talent Management & Organisational Development, RS Components

“Our delegates gained so much from The Ivy House Programmes. It opened their eyes to different ways of thinking, behaving and leading – giving them the clarity about the kind of leader they want to be”

James Johnson, Head of Talent, RBS
