TOP THE CLASS: Managers at social landlords the Luminus Group have graduated from the company’s three-year champions of success management training programme.

A special ceremony at Luminus's Brook House headquarters was attended by more than 100 guests, including VIPs and family and friends of the successful managers.

Twenty-one completed the course, which combined coaching from Total Coaching Solutions and regular masterclasses as part of the company's unique leadership academy. For the final assessment, candidates had to complete a plan showing their personal development and goal, followed by a one-to-one presentation to Luminus chief executive Chan Abraham.

Mr Abraham, said: “Leaders, more than anyone else, have the potential to affect the lives of ordinary people. Yet so many of the examples we see of leadership are not ones we respect. This is a major problem that needs to be remedied. The gradual development of our own managers, using an ethical model of leadership, based on sound moral principles, has shown tremendous results, in their own lives, in the people they lead and in the success of the Luminus business.”
