Cookery serves as a powerful metaphor for leadership, allowing teams to explore in a tactile and creative way, the essential ingredients that leaders must work with to generate exceptional performance.

We’ve teamed up with a leadership development specialist Tim Lambert to provide seamless leadership programmes that marry time in the kitchen cooking up a treat with time together learning about the recipe for great leadership.

We work with you to identify the right menu for your event. Our consultants and trainers are experienced in designing and serving up bespoke programmes that fit with your specific objectives; complementing the experience of food preparation with great takeaway models and strategies that you can use to feed and nourish your teams.

You’ll experience the joy of cooking with colleagues, learning new kitchen techniques and recipes that you can take away and serve up at home, as well as having time to learn valuable leadership lessons through expert post-activity facilitation.

Whether your interest is in how to develop a climate of trust, or how to stimulate higher levels of employee engagement, we have the ideas and models to share with you. Or maybe you want to know how to drive a culture of accountability, or how to utilise your organisation’s strengths more effectively. Whatever you have on your plate, we can offer you a course that is easily digestible and will have lasting impact.

For each event, you’ll get to choose your menu, training content and delivery schedule. We can deliver short bite-size events, full day and even two-day events.   We can further complement your session by offering useful psychometric assessments and surveys as part of the package.

Talk to us and let us help you develop great leadership skills in our state-of-the-art kitchen environment. Where leadership is concerned, we know we can add some spice to your learning.

What Tim's Clients Say

“I would like to recommend Tim Lambert of Kay-Lambert Associates. We contracted directly with Tim for the provision of a team-building workshop. With minimal pre-workshop interface, Tim had the uncanny ability to synthesize management’s concerns, read the issues surrounding the delegates, and provide a workshop that not only addressed the concerns, but led us down a path of future success".
Frederick Payne

Dave Marshall MA FCIPD
HR Manager, Character World
“Thank you for your facilitation and very interesting insights to help us along the way. The discussions we were having were the first of their kind together as a full team, so I thought they were very important/valuable and took us a step forward from where we were previously. I think the realisation of what we really need to deliver as a team started to hit home once we had got into the detail as we did yesterday".
