Cedar is a consulting firm that helps organisations improve the performance of their managers and leaders.

Our focus is on client success, which we have delivered through coaching, leadership and talent development programmes for over 20 years. We apply this experience to our clients' cultures, business situations, strategies and aspirations, delivering individual and organisational performance improvement through behavioural and cultural change.

We equip leaders, managers and their teams to meet and exceed their challenges by focusing on three aspects of development: what people know, what they do, and who they are. We back this up by robust and transparent evaluation to deliver transformed business performance.

Clients tell us that the work we do helps them to help themselves. Their investment delivers improvements for individuals, and the organisation, long after our engagement has ended.
