Great people are a company’s greatest asset. At Alpha Manufacturing, we’re proud to have a passionate, committed, and knowledgeable team that cares about the individuals they manage and support daily. 


In March 2023, we took the senior team on a leadership development journey, empowering them with new techniques to get the best results from their functions.


Alpha Manufacturing partnered with local talent, culture and leadership guru Sally Brys from Limitless Development to work with the team to explore new ways of thinking, approaching people and behaviour, and improving department performance.


Sally spent time in the business before planning the training to understand challenges and concerns before producing an engaging, reflective and thought-provoking three-module course for the Alpha Manufacturing team.


Planning Manager, Joanna Sitek, is just one of the Alpha Manufacturing employees who completed the training. She comments, “I have to be honest – I was hesitating at first. Having had a previous disappointing experience with this kind of training course, I thought it might not be for me, but I am one of those people who do not judge before trying it first, so I gave it a go.


“The safe and supportive atmosphere Sally has created encouraged us to take the shield off and be honest about both work-related and personal challenges we experience. One of my personal struggles was always the language barrier, with public speeches being extremely stressful. Therefore, I was avoiding it where I could.


“With the help and support of my group, I understood the barrier I have created in my head for 18 years should no longer be there. Looking back now, it is probably the best decision I have made in a while”.


Nick Moss, Operations Manager, adds, “Being part of the first Leadership Development programme was great, although I was quite sceptical at first. Reflecting on my leadership style and the kind of leader I want to be has helped me identify where I want to be and the part I play in the future of the business. I’m excited to try new coaching techniques to help my team reach their full potential and create a strong team. At Alpha Manufacturing, we have some incredible people, and I’m proud to be able to support them in their growth and development”.


Due to the programme’s success, Sally has tweaked the course content alongside the business to deliver similar training at the team leader level. This allows valued employees to enhance their skills and provide frameworks and models that can be used in the workplace to get better results and improve productivity.


Sally Brys, Limitless Development, comments, “The Alpha Manufacturing leadership programme is a deliberate investment in the organisation’s heart – its people. The programme has been meticulously designed to reflect the needs of the business, to nurture and develop the skills of those who attend and to drive a culture of continuous growth and excellence. It empowers individuals to unlock their full potential, aiming to create a ripple effect that positively impacts those they work with”.


At Alpha Manufacturing, our people are our greatest asset. Without them, we wouldn’t be the business we are today. But we can be better, and with investment in training and supporting employee development and growth, we can achieve even greater things, and we’re incredibly excited about it.
