About Inner Leader

“It’s not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.” So said Charles Darwin and he knew a thing or two about evolution. For your business to grow, develop and thrive, you need your people to be inspired, engaged, capable of leading themselves and others.

Inner Leader Ltd is a business-to-business consultancy specialising in the areas of leadership development, team-building, communication & mindset.

We are based in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire but we work with businesses all over the UK, Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). We’re small enough to care but big enough to support you.

Our passion is helping people in business find their ‘inner leader’ through transformative training. We focus on understanding the unique development needs of every team or individual we partner with, designing programmes that inspire, deliver results and leave a lasting impact.
