Telos and J Gadd Associates, in partnership with the EOA, have developed a programme to equip leaders and managers with the right tools and mindset to drive success in an employee owned business.


  • An enhanced understanding, confidence and capability in core leadership skills required to lead others effectively at all levels in the organisation
  • A personalised Growth Mindset (Mindset Advantage) report to support continued self-development and application outside of the Programme
  • An insight into how to unlock the potential of employee ownership through successful engagement and a growth mindset
  • An established support network from other like-minded individuals
  • Greater clarity around further opportunities for personal and organisational growth

Equip yourself with the right tools and mindset to drive success in an EO business with our Empowering Leadership course run by Telos Partners and J Gadd Associates.

You’ll complete ‘The Growth Mindset Advantage Tool’ used to support businesses across the World to develop thriving cultures and higher performance. Developed by influential leadership consultant Matthew Syed, you’ll have your own report to expand your leadership skills. You’ll also have opportunities to reflect and share in a safe, nurturing space through peer to peer coaching groups.

You’ll finish this course being a more confident and empowering leader, with tools and new contacts to help you put your learning into practice.

The course provides an immersive personal development programme of five virtual half-day sessions over three months, consisting of a mixture of sharp, focused input, practical application and facilitated reflection on real experiences to bring the learning to life.

Empowering leadership course

“There were a couple of topics where I thought ‘I’m not going to learn anything here out of this certain area’, but actually I did, there are still areas where you can do things differently or better as a leader, and there are quite a few light bulb moments where you’ve not thought of it.” Steve – Gripple
