Developing Cumbria’s Leaders for Today and Tomorrow

Leadership comes in all shapes and sizes

Leadership is not a special kind of person

Leadership is the way we behave

Who we are

The Centre for Leadership Performance is a not-for-profit organisation. Our mission is to develop Cumbria’s leaders of today and tomorrow. Our activities promote and support the development of leadership potential and ability here in Cumbria. We believe that leadership comes in all shapes and sizes, leadership is the way we behave, not a job role, job title or ‘gift’.  We work with businesses and schools to develop and deliver programmes that enhance leadership capability, fostering opportunities for everyday leadership.

Better Leadership helps create Better Lives.
