Leadership & Management Insight

Needs analysis

Start with outcomes and future-focus

We help you understand what effective looks like for your organisation.

We will identify and define the skills and behaviours that are most relevant and “critical for success” to be effective for delivering your business strategy.


Where are you now? Identify the capability and performance gaps

Our approach incorporates a range of carefully selected diagnostic tools and models.

Collaborating with your business and providing a quantifiable benchmark to diagnose key issues, we use the results to form the foundations of development.


We develop solutions that are right for your business based on robust, objective analysis of your needs and assessment of your current state.

“We need the right leadership and management capabilities to deliver our growth plans”

“I don’t know if the skills we have as a team are sufficient to deliver our strategy"

“Our Board/Leadership Team can’t agree the best way forward”

“We’re ambitious about the future but need to improve our capabilities as a team"

You want to achieve outstanding levels of business performance and your organisation working at its most effective.



Blackmore Four worked with us to clearly define the leadership behaviours and skills that are critical for us in sustaining our business performance. Leadership is an important topic at The Finishing Line, not just for our leadership team but for all colleagues who lead and aspire to lead.

Matthew (Managing Director, Blackmore Four) was able to engage a wide range of colleagues from across the business to analyse our leadership needs and develop a Leadership Framework that we will use to reflect on our abilities and behaviours, further develop skills that are important to our business and identify others who demonstrate relevant leadership potential.

Blackmore Four’s expertise in this area coupled with their ability to offer us a fresh, objective and independent perspective in a manner that worked for all concerned was of real value.
