Local Government Association

We are a political organisation because it is our elected representatives from all different political parties that direct the organisation through our boards and panels. However, we always strive to agree a common cross-party position on issues and to speak with one voice on behalf of local government.

We aim to set the political agenda and speak in the national media on the issues that matter to council members. The LG Group covers every part of England and Wales and includes county and district councils, metropolitan and unitary councils, London boroughs, Welsh unitary councils, fire, police, national park and passenger transport authorities.

We also work with the individual political parties through the political group offices.

Real World Group

At Real World Group we enable organisations to achieve superior, sustainable performance through harnessing their people’s full potential. We conduct research of publishable quality that identifies exactly what day-to-day behaviours differentiate the most effective individuals and teams in today’s fast-paced and ever-changing world. We use this knowledge to create uniquely proven assessment tools that have been shown to enhance performance, motivation, innovation, wellbeing and many other positive outcomes. Our research and assessments are respected worldwide, and distributed in multiple countries and languages.

Since we were formed nearly 20 years ago, we have been deliberately different in focusing on the contribution of behaviour to performance, rather than personality. This enables us to get closer to predicting what will increase effectiveness, and reduces the guesswork in how personality will translate to success in a given role. Our research and approach to leadership is deliberately inclusive, which we have shown enables organisations using our self-assessment or 360-degree feedback tools to also enhance diversity and inclusion through their application.

Whether you are working within an organisation or as an independent consultant, we can upskill you to apply our ground-breaking assessments for individuals, teams, Boards, and whole organisations. This will build your own capacity and potential now and into the future.
