For over twenty years now, the team at Steve Radcliffe Associates has been helping grow people as leaders at all levels of organisations so they can make a bigger difference at work and at home. We've been doing this with people in businesses, government departments, charities, health, education and the arts.


We’re usually invited in by senior leaders in an organisation to work initially with them and their top teams. Our work often then spreads through the levels to reach thousands - via leadership development, employee engagement or culture-change programmes.
The Times describes what we do as 'the no-nonsense approach shaking up the world of leadership training.' We’re known for a particular approach that captures the very best of what we’ve seen works in leadership development. We call it Future - Engage - Deliver or FED. We’re told it strikes a chord because it encourages everyone to see themselves as a leader and deliberately keeps things simple. It’s all captured in a book, Leadership Plain and Simple, which is the UK's top book on leadership.  For over four years it’s been the number one item out of more than 80,000 offered by Amazon in a search for 'leadership'. Click here to read the first two chapters of the book for free.
If you'd like to talk more, please contact us at enquiries@steveradcliffe.com. Below you'll find more about FED and its impact.

What Are People Saying About FED on Twitter?


We are so chuffed to read those words “a great read for leaders in education”, especially as they come from a #Headteacher. We are finding that FED is really hitting the mark with school #Leaders. Let’s reach even more of them

"You have to have relationships big enough to get the job done." - so true! Great book @steveradcliffe so many practical suggestions for me as Headteacher. Leadership Plan and Simple - A great read for leaders in education!

Absolutely! This ‘#Leadership stuff’ really needn’t be complicated. I believe that leading is a natural, human activity that is a part of all of us. You don’t need a certain IQ or job title to be a leader - Steve

In the words of @steveradcliffe, make sure you are ‘up to something’ this term! #future #engage #deliver
