      Vision, Mission & Values

      OUR VISION

      PROfound Leadership’s vision is to strengthen organisations through human-centred leadership and positively transform their future and generations to come.

         

        OUR MISSION

        Our mission at PROfound Leadership is to empower organisations, teams and individuals with effective and proven leadership strategies and unleash their full potential to succeed in an ever-changing environment.

        We do this by:

        • Challenging the Status Quo and providing new perspectives
        • Educating and empowering individuals to find their authentic leadership style
        • Building greater confidence, so individuals, teams and organisations can make smarter choices and achieve better outcomes

          OUR VALUES

           

          CLIENT PERFORMANCE & SUCCESS

          Without you, we wouldn’t exist. Our first priority is to ensure that with every interaction you progress further ahead in transforming your organisation. This isn’t just because it makes us happy and proud, but more importantly so you can have a positive impact on generations to come through enhanced leadership skills.

          EXCELLENCE & ACCOUNTABILITY

          Your needs come first in everything we do, which is why we commit to life-long learning, continuous improvement and a best practice approach to guarantee our programs’ quality. We deliver excellence, efficiency and award-winning learning impact, so that each experience with us is positive and effective. This includes every event or coaching session you organise or attend, online training course you enrol in, video you watch, blog post you read, and every email you receive.

          BUSINESS RELATIONS & INTEGRITY

          Our focus is on long-term commitments to build and foster strong business relationships that are built on a foundation of integrity and open communication to achieve sustainable win-win outcomes.

          When you become a PROfound Leadership client, you will experience a fully tailored approach to anything we provide.
          Everything we deliver is designed to accelerate your ability to achieve better outcomes and reap results from confident leadership.

          Our programs set themselves apart from other similar, off-the-shelf training solutions. The coaching sessions, workshop facilitations, leadership programs, keynote speeches and video tutorials are not hypothetical case studies, but much rather based on real situations that our clients are faced with, and always include a solution-based approach to enhance learner engagement and to positively impact business results and learner satisfaction.

          Methodology

          Our learning and development solutions are based on the PROfound Leadership Methodology, developed after extensive research of client needs and analysing prevailing skill gaps in education and the workforce.

          This innovative, learner-led method covers 360 degrees of human-centred leadership and serves as a compass for clients to overcome their challenges and move forward through six areas of development:

          • Identity & Relationships - Who
          • Values, Beliefs & Purpose - Why
          • Competency - How
          • Environment - Where
          • Structure & Planning - When
          • Behaviours & Action - What

          PROfound Methodology - Leadership Skills - Professional Development

          Led by the client’s identified learning needs, the six components are addressed either in the order they appear in the methodology or in a slightly different chronology as required. Our approach is to tailor the program to the client for maximum engagement, satisfaction and business outcomes, which calls for flexibility and innovative delivery design.

          Implementation Strategy

          For the implementation of learnings, we developed and designed the LEADER Learning Methodology, a 6-step process that provides the clients with a clear strategy and succinct guidance.

            Learning methodology - award-winning learning impact - LEADER - Leadership Skills - Professional Development

            This LEADER step sequence maximises outcomes not only during the Learning & Development session itself, but participants can successfully transfer their learnings into the workplace by a post-training review of the workbook and through follow-up session options if selected.

            Martin Probst delivered an engaging and in-depth presentation on the DISC model of leadership for the RMIT Executive MBA. His interactive session encouraged students to share their stories and experiences, which added a practical and more authentic discussion that students continued to discuss days later. I would describe Martin as professional AND approachable. His materials (handouts, info sheets) were beautifully designed and very helpful for future reflection and development that extends outside of the session. I look forward to collaborating with Martin again. Dr Melissa Wheeler Executive MBA Facilitator, RMIT University
