Hyde Aero Products Group has celebrated the outstanding success of six members of its team who have graduated from the Sharing in Growth Lighthouse Team Leader Academy.
The Hyde high flyers were presented with accreditation certificates which confirm that they not only completed the whole programme, but also demonstrated practical evidence of their new behaviours and skills to satisfy both their sponsoring employer and a Sharing in Growth (SiG) expert committee.
As a result of their ongoing development, and undoubtedly the success of the programme over the last year, all have seen recognised promotions:

Said Matt Smallman, joint managing director of Hyde Group: “The Sharing in Growth Team Leader Academy has given Hyde a fantastic contribution to the furthering development of our people. We continue to invest to enhance the team and increase the businesses potential we have, and, therefore, I am really pleased that not only have the team participated in the academy but that they have then gained promotions within the company. We feel strongly about promoting our people and this is a shining example of this ethos.”
Said SiG business transformation manager Darren Cheetham: “The Hyde team can be really proud of their achievements which, I believe, reflects the strength of the Sharing in Growth Team Leader Academy. They are putting into practice tools and techniques they have learned over the programme and are now seeing excellent results, personal development and recognition.”

The SiG academy was launched in 2018 to develop highly talented leadership for this generation and the next by helping attendees understand what is expected of the team leader role and how to perform it successfully.
To date around 100 delegates have:

The six-month syllabus includes ten modules with eleven training days backed by one-to-one on-site coaching from Sharing in Growth’s experts to ensure that the learning is tailored to the individual and quickly embedded through implementation on the job. Delegates all visit SiG partners Toyota UK to study world class team leader standards in action.
