Transformational Leadership Skills

Barclays Bank Graduate Programme

Key Data

Focus: Development of leadership skills for finance academy graduates
Objectives: to identify and develop key leadership behaviours and to transfer these to the workplace
Delegate Number: 15-20 per group
Venue: Our Development Centre Brecon Beacons | Barclays Head Office, Canary Wharf


As a direct result of the success of other development inputs within Barclays, Call of the Wild were asked to design and deliver a leadership programme for the graduates from Barclays Finance Academy.

The Objectives

The primary objective was for each delegate to be able to recognise, and develop appropriate leadership behaviours and transfer these to the workplace.

The Programme

The programme was designed to take delegates outside of their normal comfort zones in a challenging, yet safe environment.

Several developmental inputs are utilised.

  1. Web-enabled learning
  2. Experiential Learning
  3. Project Work
  4. Post-programme Follow up

The programme allows delegates to become self-aware of their own leadership skills and provides a platform and support system to enable them to begin applying their learning to the work environment.


“This training was great, everything we did could be related to situations we may encounter in the workplace. It has increased my confidence in myself”

“The discussion and feedback sessions have really made me think about my leadership skills, overall an excellent programme”
