Leadership Program

Leadership isn't magic reserved solely for 'natural' leaders.
It's a set of skills and behaviors that we can help you master.

Book a call

High-performing leaders boost team performance and increase retention. In fact, a recent Gallup study found that 70% of a team's engagement is heavily influenced by managers.

The Problem

This is one of the key reasons a 2016 Grovo Study made such dismal reading. It found that 98% of respondents felt that the managers at their company needed substantially more training in core leadership areas.

On top of all of this, the majority of management training centers on procedural skills. It focuses on the mechanics of traditional management rather than the skills and behaviors of modern, coaching-based leadership.

The reality is that your leaders struggle every day to balance competing instincts, experiences, values and requirements in novel and complex situations. Put another way, if there were a simple flowchart to deal with all leadership situations, we would have completely replaced leaders with software 30 years ago.

The Solution

An effective leadership program has to account for this reality - which is why we've thrown out the rule book and created a multi-faceted program that blends training, facilitation and coaching.

We deliver an immersive learning journey that focuses on 7 of the core leadership strengths identified by Google's Project Oxygen. Namely, a good manager...

  1. Is a good coach.
  2. Empowers the team and doesn't micromanage people.
  3. Creates an inclusive team, showing concern for everyone's success and well-being.
  4. Is productive and results-oriented.
  5. Is a good communicator - they listen and share information.
  6. Supports career development and discusses performance.
  7. Is a strong decision maker.

We've carefully chosen a blend of workshops (listed below), coaching support, and resources that will accelerate your manager's learning, deepen their understanding and help them to scale their impact effectively.

leadership program structure A Typical Program

The workshops can be lightly customized for your group and taken in any order (though we will make recommendations for the best way to sequence them).

To begin, we'll meet with you to learn more about your managers and the environment they are operating in. We'll learn about the challenges you've experienced and the aspirations you have for the future. Armed with this knowledge, we'll tailor a proposal to your situation, making sure that the blend, sequence and schedule of services is configured for maximum impact.

Our Leadership program is built from these individual workshops...
