Who We Are

Elementa Leadership is a UK-based specialist leadership and organisation development consultancy with cross-sectoral international experience, focused on higher education.  Elementa Leadership is committed to the future of higher education as central to the development of both a better society and a better economy.  Elementa Leadership's consultancy services focus on developing the 'Agile University' through the alignment and integration of strategy, leadership and culture.  Elementa Leadership has twice been centrally involved in leadership development programmes that have won the Times Higher Education 'Outstanding Contribution to Leadership Development' award in 2009 and 2014.

We work in a genuine partnership with our clients to co-create solutions that build greater strategic agility as the basis for continued success. We don't pretend to have all of the answers but working together with our clients we can jointly frame the 'right' questions and help to orchestrate a collective response that will develop fresh thinking, new possibilities and sustainable improvement.

Elementa Leadership's approach to leadership development in higher education is informed and underpinned by our model of Bridge-Building Leadership.  Bridge-Building Leadership has emerged from our experiences of working with a number of organisations from the private, public and third sectors in addition to our extensive work and investment in global higher education.  Our work is informed by a strong evidence base drawn from organisational psychology, management theory and 'whole systems' thinking. Our significant practical experience of working at strategic and senior levels, across sectors, has applied this evidence base to produce many valued outcomes.
