Leadership Programs

– stepping up as a leader through new perspectives, new thinking and new concepts.

Innovative organisations are aware that securing and maintaining a competitive edge requires a pipeline from emerging leaders to visionary executives. It is crucial to develop new leaders, assist developing leaders as well as support existing CEOs and executives to become stronger influencers who can make a greater positive impact on business performance and outcomes for all stakeholders involved?

Our elite programs enable selected managers to benchmark, develop and accelerate their leadership skills:

  • Suitable for companies who have several team members who would benefit from bridging leadership skill gaps or prepare them for the next step
  • Designed to build participants’ confidence, certainty, and competence to allow them to return to the organisations with new leadership strategies to overcome challenges and accelerate organisational success
  • Stimulates participants’ desire to excel in their roles, and nurtures values and beliefs aligned with business and team outcomes
  • Creates a culture of independent employees who perform interdependently within a cohesive team
  • Choice of elements such as (on-site and/or online) workshops, webinars, on-on-one coaching, Q&A sessions, DISC profiles, etc. - the choice is yours
  • Completely tailored to the required outcomes, desired length and financial budget of your company. Together with you, we will explore the options that are available to you

What’s on offer?

Our programs set themselves apart from other similar, off-the-shelf training solutions. Our content does not consist of hypothetical case studies, but much rather is 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.

To give you an idea what a personalised leadership program could entail, following is the outline of our most popular 12-month program, designed to be accessible from wherever you want, whenever you want, and as often as you want during the program period (with the exception of the set session times of the group training).

'Authentic Leadership' 12-month program

Create leaders who inspire others to excel and succeed

Why can some people clearly achieve their goals and dreams, whilst others are consistently challenged?

Time and time again, we witness that a manager’s biggest mistake is their attempt to “wing it”.

Success leaves clues!

… but only if you know what you’re looking for. Which is why we designed this leadership program. It enables managers to create a self-awareness platform for themselves and learn how to motivate and interact effectively with others, so they can achieve ultimate success beyond the nine-to-five demands of the job.

 

Our Authentic Leadership Program is designed to build inspiring and dynamic leaders who, in turn, create independent and powerful workplace teams. We dig deeper into the practical skills of leadership so they have a more in-depth understanding of human behaviour, and how to successfully use this knowledge in a dynamic and ever-changing business world. The strategies, techniques and tools they will learn could be the difference between being an average manager and an inspirational and successful leader.

Program participants will:

  • Gain invaluable knowledge, practical skills and profound expertise in leading and managing self and others, which can change behaviours and culture in any organisation or industry context.
  • Apply their skills to achieve peak performance in a supportive working environment where employees can excel within a team.
  • Acquire, apply and improve leadership strategies to successfully deal with any challenges and achieve ethical win-win solutions.
  • Learn to not only solve problems, but to see opportunities these challenges may present, and to discover new and innovative sources of revenue in those opportunities.

This elite program is designed for participants to acquire the skills and confidence needed to master their mind and provide them with the blueprint to become inspirational and successful leaders in a dynamic and ever-changing business world.

      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.

        How to make it easy for yourself

        We are here to support you. The planning process should be as easy as possible for you. That’s why our awesome Leadership Skills Team will help you with any questions you have, and develop a tailored leadership training program together with you to ensure your next event is right for your business and a great success.

        What are the definition and advantages of 'blended' learning?

        Blended learning is an education program that combines online digital media with traditional face-to-face methods requiring the physical presence of both teacher and participant. It creates great flexibility for participants to study online in their own time and at their individual pace, but also the opportunity to demonstrate practical leadership skills in a face-to-face environment, where they can ask questions, participate in group discussions and build great business relationships that go beyond the program.

        Is this a formal qualification?

        Fortunately not! We do not believe in a “cookie cutter” approach, where the one off-the-shelf program suits everybody. This program gives us the necessary flexibility and opportunities to deliver real solutions tailored to our participants’ needs rather than ticking boxes and getting lost in bureaucracy.

        Is there anybody who can help participants if they get stuck?

        Participants have access to the PROfound Leadership team who is there to support them all the way and provide solutions when they face a challenge. Depending on the chosen program, there are different ways for participants to connect with their thought leaders including email support, phone coaching etc.

        How do I get started?

        It's easy to get started! Simply contact us either by phone 1300 936 313 or email [email protected] for an obligation-free conversation. We offer a complimentary meeting to discuss the company needs and requirements, so we can tailor and design a program to get the best possible outcome for you and the participants. You can also complete and submit our online planning tool and we will be in touch with you.

        We are looking forward to be on your support team!
