About

We use the voice and body to help people communicate
authentically, innovate courageously and lead with presence

"Working with Chirp was a really effective way of challenging us to do things differently."

 
 

Chirp is an award-winning leadership development agency that helps you be more compelling, courageous and human at work. Our dynamic approach has helped clients from central government to City banks and charities. 

We work particularly with organisations seeking change, helping you lead with influence, communicate with clarity and take more strategic risks. Whether you're a leader engaging with change or a team wanting to innovate faster, our work enables you to think clearly, behave differently and thrive.

Our work often involves experiential tools like singing and conducting. These tools engage your intellect, emotions and physicality simultaneously, helping you gain deeper self-awareness and insight into interpersonal dynamics. Our tools also create a degree of risk and exposure, enabling you examine your response to uncertainty and vulnerability back at work. With expert facilitation, we help you gain critical insight into your own and others' behaviour, and learn new techniques to lead with greater influence and clarity.


"The Chirp session was brilliant, if not a little daunting! Not only was it a great team event, but an incredibly useful way of challenging us to be bolder, more confident and take a few risks."
