Our Approach

We have a unique and systematic approach to leadership and management development.

Focused on the achievement of business results, we use a four part system to deliver success for our clients and delegates:

1. Robust course content proven over 30 years with more than 6000 delegates. All Mitchell Phoenix courses are tried and tested under the most demanding audience –  senior managers who’s time is precious. Our programmes contain only concepts, ideas and strategies that will be useful to leaders and managers, no jargon or overnight fads.
2. The course structure of one day each month requires delegates to apply the learning in their working environment with an emphasis on creating business results. All delegates report on their progress to the group and their line-management. Delegates track their own progress, line managers can ensure their people focus on transferring learning into the business and can readily see a direct return on investment.
3. Seminar design is focused on delegate output, mimicking real life situations, allowing delegates to practice in a secure environment. All exercises, discussions and practical work is designed to enable the delegates to build better tactics and strategies for improving their leadership, their influence within the business and ultimately improving business results. Mitchell Phoenix seminars focus delegates on creating active output rather than listening to passive trainer input.
4. Facilitation by experts, full time Mitchell Phoenix course directors – no hired hands, dilettantes, charlatans or amateurs. The programmes are available custom built for your business or through our public programmes in London and New York.

Success Stories

“I have used the services of Mitchell Phoenix for over 30 years in 15 different organisations including training in overseas subsidiaries. The design of the programme, over a 6 month period, involving applying the techniques learnt each month in the workplace during the intervening period is a powerful tool and the leads to buy in and adoption at an early stage. The results are measurable and contribute to a visible change in performance and a common culture, as well as bonding within the management team. This is an excellent thought provoking program, particularly where a rapid change in performance and demanding goals need to be achieved”

Ross Stuart – Serial CEO and Business Transformation Specialist


“I was recommended to Mitchell Phoenix by one of our non-exec directors, who had been on one of their courses 15 years previously and remembered it well for the impact it had on his development and career. Though initially sceptical, I am now more than convinced. The Governing Change course is a perfectly balanced blend of a theory to help deep understanding, collaborative workshops, and due to the spread over 6 months, practical implementation. The outcome was greater self-awareness, key distinctions to aid my development, and a range of new tools to apply and opportunity to ingrain through at-work application. Several colleagues have since been on the course. As a company, the performance and output has grown, level of communication and execution has jumped a level, staff retention and motivation have deepened and the company is growing stronger by the day. It could be a coincidence…..or perhaps it was one of the best business investments we’ve made. I can only recommend any company or management team intent on developing its quality and capability of management to work with Mitchell Phoenix.”
