  • Emerging leaders about to start a new role

  • Leaders who have responsibility for a team but no formal training

  • Those who need a refresher in the capabilities of management and leadership


Leading Self

1. The Self-Aware Leader

Most good managers have sound product knowledge or technical skills, the ability to manage relationships and the motivation to succeed. But exceptional managers are also self-aware.

2. The Resilient Leader

Get tips and techniques to self-manage anxiety and stress and create a resilience plan that will help you bounce back from setbacks and thrive in high-pressure environments.

3. The Courageous Leader

Having the confidence to manage tough conversations and conflict is an essential leadership skill. Your approach can make or break relationships and determine decisions and their outcomes

Leading Others

1. Building and Leading Teams

Learn strategies for building great teams and creating successful team dynamics. You will develop skills that enhance communication and trust and align team members around shared goals so they can effectively plan, communicate, execute and deliver.

2. Influencing Others

Every leader needs to be able to engage with people and get their buy-in and approval. Learn to recognise which influencing style is required in different situations and develop strategies to help you achieve the outcome you desire.

3. Feedback for Results

Effective feedback is a crucial part of improving individual and team performance. This module focuses on the one-on-one conversations held between managers and their direct reports. You’ll get to know your own feedback style and use models to plan and prepare positive developmental and personal feedback

Leading Business and Performance

1. Business Focus and Planning

A business plan is a powerful tool for bringing objectives and goals into focus. This workshop takes you through business or departmental goal setting and introduces a few widely used planning tools. You’ll leave with a high level ‘plan on a page’ that you can build on for future success

2. Leading Change/Leading Performance

Periods of change can be challenging – and sound leadership is essential to help people make positive transitions. Explore your role in communicating and planning change, find out how people typically respond and why, and learn tactics to help manage their responses and resistance to it

3. Business Evolution

Innovation and the continual evolution of processes and products are imperative for organisations that don’t want to get left behind. Learn the importance of continual evaluation and review. Come away with tools that will help you drive innovation in your organisation.


Your business will benefit because you will become a confident leader who is more effective at motivating high performance in others.

You will increase the speed (through increased clarity and less resistance) to achieving the desired future direction of the organisation.
