UK two man delivery company ArrowXL has launched a new leadership and development programme it calls ‘Squad’, which aims to identify future talented leaders and sustain business growth.
The ArrowXL Squad course is based at the company’s development academy and is designed to create high performance teams, focusing on “managing self, managing task and managing others”.
The idea of the course is to engage managers, develop key skills, and create a commonality of leadership language across the business in order to unearth the next generation of business leaders across the logistics, fulfilment and home delivery industries. It is a 10 day course that focuses on performance levels, understanding commercial decisions, personal brand, and a work-related project that helps to improve colleague engagement.
ArrowXL Head of Resource and Development Zoe Sinclair developed the course that has so far worked with 40 of the company’s management first line team managers, such as supervisors and ‘Squad PLUS’ (for more senior team members). Squad Lite is for those identified as potential management.
Commenting on the launch of Squad, Sinclair said: “The ArrowXL Development Academy enables us to create a range of tailored and specialist training to match the business requirements. Squad will give our managers the opportunity to develop their key skills and progress within the business, which is vital as we continue to grow.”
Charlie Shiels, CEO of ArrowXL, said: “Squad has made an immediate impact and the feedback Zoe and her team have received from colleagues taking part has been excellent. We are absolutely committed to providing our people with the necessary tools to flourish and to maximise their potential.”
