Find a new home from Lioncourt
A team from Worcestershire based housebuilder Lioncourt Homes has been awarded highly commended for Best Training Initiative at the prestigious Housebuilder Awards 2018. The awards, held at the O2 in London, recognise excellence and innovation in all aspects of the home building industry.
The entry level career development initiative, ‘The Sky’s the Limit’, was launched with a helicopter ride over the company’s key sites. The aim of the group is to provide a platform for potential future leaders to gain vital experience outside of their respective discipline such as key decision making, public speaking, ambition, negotiation, self-belief and a no limits attitude to their development. Led by the company’s Chief Executive Colin Cole, a mixture of development techniques are being used including, one-to-ones, structured programmes, group meetings, coaching and facilitating opportunities to learn.
Colin Cole, Chief Executive of Lioncourt Homes said: “I am delighted that our ‘The Sky’s the Limit’ team have been recognised in the annual Housebuilder Awards in London. Our unique training scheme to develop our managers for the future has gathered momentum in recent times and I am extremely proud of each and every member of the team and what they have achieved over the past 18 months.”
The initiative has already proved a success with 50% of the group achieving promotion which was independently recommended and approved by the board of directors. Since the launch, all members have reported a growth in self-confidence, belief and a sense of belonging and 25% of the group have engaged in further academic qualifications to assist their career growth.
