    Building Personal Resilience

    Cope and thrive in the face of challenges.

    In a world constantly evolving, resilience is not just a quality; it's a superpower. Resilience enables us to cope with change, problems and stress, and helps us to turn stumbling blocks into stepping stones and setbacks into comebacks.

    This session is designed to educate, empower and inspire individuals to maximise their own level of resilience required to respond positively to the pressures and demands in their personal and professional environment. They will acquire practical insights and empowering strategies to not only navigate challenges but to emerge stronger, more adaptable, and ready to conquer any obstacle.

    Improving Interpersonal Skills with DISC

    Understand behaviour styles to enhance connections and teamwork.

    DISC is a highly beneficial tool to assist us in recognising differences between people. It helps us understand ourselves and others better. By accepting, respecting, and adapting to these differences we can build long-term relationships and positive influence.

    Participants will complete a self-evaluation survey in the lead-up to the program, an important element to learn more about their own personality traits and spot behavioural preferences in others. Attendees will walk away from this engaging training with the knowledge of how to recognise other people's behavioural patterns so they can modify their communication to achieve win/win outcomes.

    Proactively develop your team’s capacity to foster effective collaboration, enhance communication, and strengthen relationships to drive success.

    Learn more.

    Mastering Constructive Feedback

    Promote growth through effective communication techniques.

    As professionals, we're all familiar with the process of receiving and giving feedback, but we don't always have the tools to make it a graceful, constructive and positive experience. Feedback can be difficult to give and receive, but when done effectively, it can promote growth and contribute to a positive work environment.

    This engaging training session is an opportunity to learn how to confidently lead conversations, manage emotions and pushbacks, and establish a feedback-ready culture. Participants will walk away with a well-tested and powerful toolkit of feedback techniques to promote growth and development within themselves and their teams.

    Proactively develop your team’s ability to successfully deliver and receive valuable feedback, ultimately elevating the overall synergy and success of your workplace.

    Learn more.

    Mastering strategic planning for effective leadership

    Create a clear vision backed by definite plans.

    The key challenge in achieving organisational outcomes often lies in the ambiguity surrounding our purpose and the misalignment of vision, mission, values and goals. This hands-on session offers a wealth of proven strategies and frameworks to clarify the organisation's purpose, align the team, and drive performance.

    Through interactive exercises, participants will brainstorm and develop growth strategies, set SMART goals, identify Wildly Important Goals (WIGs) for focused action, and create a detailed action plan to translate the organisational vision into reality. They will leave with a clear roadmap for strategic planning, empowering them to lead with confidence and achieve their goals.

    Fostering a strong team culture to drive performance

    Build a foundation for success.

    It is an undeniable fact that culture impacts every aspect of a business. It affects reputation, customer service, absenteeism, employee motivation and turnover, ability to acquire great talent, and many other areas.  A clear vision and strong leadership are the foundation for building a sustainable culture of trust, collaboration and prosperity.

    In this session, participants will dive into a structured approach to identify how they can improve culture and strengthen teams to enhance organisational performance. They will walk away with actionable strategies and tools to cultivate a positive team culture that drives success.

    Becoming change agile to master uncertainty

    Assist others to successfully adapt to change.

    It can be tough dealing with the pace of change and the uncertainty that goes with it. However, it is important for leaders to learn how to embrace, navigate, and lead through change effectively. And the more change agile we are, the better prepared we are to respond when things move fast.

    This session introduces particpants to the ADKAR change management model and explores different leadership techniques to lead themselves and their team through challenging times with purpose and poise.

    Dealing with challenging behaviours

    Promote change through positive influence.

    Difficult behaviours can have an enormous negative impact on organisations and day-to-day operations, destroy long-term business relationships, as well severely affect individuals on a physical, mental and emotional level.

    This session aims to provide behavioural solutions and unpack how to positively influence and inspire self and others to excel.

    Program objectives may include:

    • How we create our reality
    • What makes us tick
    • Why people are not their behaviours
    • What’s in our control; and what’s not
    • How to positively influence behavioural change in self and others

    Learn more.

    Cultivating Emotional Intelligence to be a better manager

    Embrace the HEART-beat of emotional self-mastery.

    Successful managers, whether leading a small team or a larger organisation, are set apart not by their IQ, but by their EI; their Emotional Intelligence.  Heightened EI enables us to secure positive outcomes even in challenging situations.

    This session delves into the core principles of EI, enhancing participants' capacity to understand, manage, and harness emotions effectively. They will walk away with powerful mental and emotional management techniques designed to contribute to better decision-making and improved team dynamics.

    Leading with authenticity and positive impact

    How to influence tomorrow through impactful actions today.

    Great leaders inspire great teams. And great teams require a culture of employees being independent and motivated individuals, performing within an inclusive team.

    Facilitating Difficult Conversations

    Confidently managing challenging situations for win-win outcomes.

    We can choose to avoid difficult conversations. They seem too hard, but unfortunately the problems remain unresolved. Sometimes we facilitate difficult conversations and wish we knew how to handle them better. Here’s the upside: there are well tested strategies to swiftly turn dysfunctional situations into constructive conversations.

    This engaging workshop is an opportunity to learn how to secure productive outcomes from conflict through a better understanding of human behaviours and with simple yet effective and powerful communication strategies.

    Managing Successful Meetings

    Success principles of effective meetings.

    There is no doubt that meetings play a pivotal role in the successful management of an organisation, and thus must deliver powerful action plans and meaningful outcomes. Otherwise, valuable and costly time and effort are wasted.

    This workshop is focusing on how to eliminate meetings that are only time wasters and improve those that make a difference to the business. Participants will learn what it takes to plan, structure and lead effective, engaging and productive meetings through proper facilitation. This in turn will create accountability in attendees, lead to powerful action steps, as well as deliver clear outcomes to move the organisation forward.

    Maximising student potential

    Reinvigorate the classroom to engage learners.

    Traditional knowledge-based teaching styles are being replaced with brain-based learning strategies to ensure students can become curious, determined, adaptable and independent learners. Many educators wish they would understand what makes their students ‘tick’, so they could help them solve issues and problems timelier and effectively. However, they have not yet found an easy-to-understand roadmap to quickly and accurately identify the underlying causes. Until now.

    The focus in this engaging workshop is on innovation, and how teachers and trainers can assist their students to create a mindset of excellence with the help of the ‘7 logical levels of thinking’. Classroom engagement to maximise the student's potential.

    Program outcomes may include:

    • Innovation – the key to success
    • Presuppositions for student engagement
    • What’s in our control – and what’s not?

Led by Martin Probst and his team of seasoned facilitators, this program exceeded my expectations in every aspect. From the outset, it was evident that this training was meticulously designed to foster leadership excellence. The content was thoughtfully curated, blending cutting-edge leadership theories with practical strategies applicable to real-world scenarios. What truly set this program apart was its emphasis on experiential learning. Through engaging activities, insightful discussions, and interactive simulations, participants were not mere spectators but active contributors to their own development. One of the most remarkable aspects of this training was its inclusivity. Regardless of prior leadership experience or organizational role, every participant felt valued and empowered to share their unique perspectives. Martin Probst created a safe and supportive environment conducive to open dialogue, where diverse voices were not just welcomed but celebrated. This inclusive approach not only enriched the learning experience but also inspired a sense of camaraderie among attendees. Moreover, Martin exemplified the principles they imparted. Their passion for leadership was palpable, infusing every session with energy and authenticity. Their blend of expertise, empathy, and humour fostered an atmosphere of trust, encouraging participants to step out of their comfort zones and embrace growth wholeheartedly. Perhaps the most profound impact of this training was its focus on self-awareness and emotional intelligence. Through introspective exercises and constructive feedback, participants gained valuable insights into their leadership styles and areas for development. This heightened self-awareness served as a catalyst for personal transformation, equipping attendees with the tools to lead with authenticity, empathy, and resilience. In conclusion, I cannot recommend this leadership training session highly enough. Whether you're a seasoned executive seeking to refine your leadership skills or a budding leader eager to unleash your full potential, this program offers invaluable insights and practical tools to elevate your leadership journey.

      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

      I would describe Martin as professional AND approachable

       

      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.
