We believe that Discovery, Teamwork and Adventure are the key ingredients for success, wealth and happiness.
DISCOVERY is about being curious, understanding oneself and knowing one’s limitations. It’s also a lifelong commitment to learning, gaining knowledge and sharing experiences that will aid our personal and professional development.
TEAMWORK enables us to improve our communication skills, to develop our style of leadership and to collaborate more effectively with our colleagues. There is nothing better than a team working together in complete harmony.
ADVENTURE builds our capacity for taking risks, for being innovative and it helps us cope better in the face of adversity. It prevents procrastination and encourages us to take action whilst ensuring we have fun along the way!
At Laughton & Co, we help individuals and businesses develop their powers of Discovery, Teamwork and Adventure in order to become more inspirational leaders and develop high performing teams. We offer a selection of bespoke leadership programmes, training courses, exciting journeys, fun days out of the office, inspirational speakers and unique ways to be adventurous.
Our mission is to help you and your team transition from Ordinary to Extraordinary!
Business Support Group
The Business Support Group is a leadership development and coaching programme for senior business executives who meet on a monthly basis. Meetings start with some networking, followed by lunch and then an inspirational guest speaker addresses the members. The session concludes with a facilitated problem solving group discussion.
