About these downloads

Following on from the report Leadership – easier said than done, which looked at the barriers to leadership and good people management in practice, this report explores further the systemic barriers to leadership under the same four groups of challenges to leadership which are present in some organisations today.

To help practitioners improve the leadership capacity of the organisation as a whole, we are publishing a series of case studies that illustrate different approaches some organisations have taken to understand what leadership their organisation needs and align the organisational context to support leadership.

Case studies are available to download from
  • Millers Oils
  • British American Tabacco South Asia
  • Thames Valley Police
  • Crime Reduction Initiatives
  • Port of Felixstowe
