      Our programs set themselves apart from other similar, off-the-shelf training solutions.

      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.

            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!

            What other program topics are on offer?

            Not exactly what you were looking for? We offer training in a range of other leadership skills topics through in-house workshop, leadership programs, speaking engagements and webinar.

            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 attended a presentation by Martin on collaboration and it was great. Succinct, relatable and entertaining. Perfect ingredients for a presentation. Thank you and well done Martin.

            I had the pleasure of attending one of Martin's keynote speeches at the ABLE Author and Book Expo. His wisdom and confidence were truly remarkable. Martin's ability to engage the audience and deliver his message with passion was truly inspiring. Martin's expertise in the field is evident, and I would highly recommend him as a keynote speaker for any event. His presence and delivery are nothing short of exceptional, making him a valuable asset to any occasion.
