This six-month blended learning programme teaches an innovative Developmental Consultation approach to help you foster deeper developments with clients, teams, and whole systems. 

Who is it for?  Participants already work effectively in client systems and have plenty of lived experience, a good deal of practical wisdom and a range of theories and techniques at their fingertips. But they’re still looking to add, extend or deepen a truly robust, research-based developmental dimension in their work.  The programme is designed for practitioners with significant experience in a range of practical and theoretical areas e.g., executive coaches, OD and leadership development consultants, HR and L&D practitioners, facilitators, supervisors and psychologists.

Our core aims:  1. To empower you to learn, experience, explore and practice the ‘Art of Developmental Consultation’ with clients and systems.  2. To generate and facilitate a developmentally-enriched learning environment in which the core principles are explored, experienced and practiced, professionally and personally.  3. To nurture our ever-growing community of alumni advancing ‘development’ in the field. 4. And if you're not yet LDF Authorised, there's an optional Module 4 to gain authorised status!
