The “Spire way” of developing our people has been through investing in them to help them realise their potential. Key development programmes are delivered, covering values, expectations and coaching for performance. 178 of our managers completed at least one of these courses in 2012. Through providing staff with clear performance goals and nurturing leadership talent, we have transformed our culture to one where high performance is valued and delivered.

Management Fundamentals

Management Fundamentals is a 4 day residential programme specifically for new managers joining the business and current employees stepping into their first management role. It is designed to provide delegates with a thorough understanding of the expectations of being a people manager within Spire Healthcare and equip them with the knowledge and tools to enable them to have an immediate and positive impact on their team’s performance.

Management Fundamentals covers a wide range of topics including; the business in context, performance management, creating a high commitment high performance growth culture, coaching for performance, managing attendance and key employee relations processes and procedures.

Delegates have an opportunity to share ideas and thoughts with colleagues from across the organisation in a safe environment and are fully supported by their line managers to help them transfer what they have learnt back to the workplace.

Leadership Essentials


Leadership Essentials is a 7 day programme, spread over 6 months to support the development of experienced and more senior managers at Spire Healthcare. It is designed to enable delegates to understand what inspiring leadership looks like within Spire Healthcare and to provide them with the skills to engage and lead a successful team in order to deliver strong business results

It is a challenging programme that encourages individuals to consider their personal leadership characteristics, raise their level of self-awareness, apply their knowledge of authentic leadership to create loyal followers and discover how to lead people through change effectively.

Delegates have an amazing opportunity to spend two days at the inspirational Royal Military Academy Sandhurst where they can practice and receive feedback on their leadership style. They also have an opportunity to take part in a two day work placement to shadow leaders in another organisation.

Each delegate is appointed a mentor to support their learning throughout the programme and their earning is consolidated through the implementation of a change initiative, which is worked on for the duration of the programme.
