What We Do

Developing profitable, resilient businesses by developing their greatest asset: people

Great leaders have a habit of doing the right thing at the right time. As a result, people put their faith and trust in them, regardless of their role or pay grade. Sounds simple, but what is the ‘right thing’ and when is the ‘right time’?

RLE People was founded to help people develop and practice the mindset and behaviours needed to become great leaders. We use the proven Resilient Leaders Elements (RLE) framework to help people identify and develop those areas where they can improve and consolidate those areas where they are already strong.

The RLE approach is based on the principle that leadership is a combination of ‘who I am’ and ‘what I do’ and it has been used to help thousands of people over the last 20 years. The progress people make is measurable and shows that just an hour a week of learning and practice, can lead to a 20% improvement in performance within a few months.

After an initial assessment, each client is provided with an individual Resilient Leaders Development Programme. Each programme contains a set of activities targeted at helping you develop the skills, techniques and mindset needed to develop your own resilience and, crucially, deliver improved results.

We then provide whatever help and support you need to work through this programme successfully.

Growth areas include:

  • Creating a clear vision for the future and a realistic strategy for achieving that vision
  • Creating alignment around your vision across the business through improved communication
  • Developing a strong appreciation of the motives, attitudes, strengths and weaknesses of yourself and others
  • Having a clear appreciation of your core values and demonstrating integrity and conviction in both business and personal relationships
  • Ensuring you serve the needs of others, including your customers, your team members, your business partners and your family
  • Developing a more creative and versatile approach to decision making, enabling you to take valuable ideas from concept to reality

We achieve this by working on four key elements of leadership:


Utilising an appreciation of different people's motivations, cultures, strengths and weaknesses, to ensure that everyone works at their best.

You have unlocked a new way of thinking for me and a greater belief in my leadership potential. I am able to understand myself better and build on those skills with the relevant ideas and concepts you introduce

Shane, Sainsbury's Argos

I have found it really great to have someone external to my organisation coach me, by offering a safe environment in which to test ideas and also by being away from day-to-day distractions. My coach has been instrumental in helping me to "hold up a mirror" to myself in order to see myself as others do. The sessions have been both challenging and very rewarding; the benefits of our work together have been rapidly visible in both my work and personal life

Jason, Network Rail

A truly insightful and powerfully energising experience, that I have been able to use daily at home as well as work. All conducted in a very professional and relaxing atmosphere.

Dean, Aztech IT Solutions Ltd

Your coaching sessions are brilliant! They are informative, productive and enjoyable, and the whole process is giving me far more than I ever thought it could.
