Who Does the Leadership Skill Center Work With?

We work with individual executives, managers, team leaders, supervisors, board members and business owners, as well as corporate human resource and training managers who are keen to develop effective leadership and management skills.

Our clients vary from multinational corporations to some very dynamic smaller enterprises in both the commercial and not-for-profit sectors.

We have worked with people across a wide range of industries, including:

  • utilities,
  • engineering and mining companies,
  • healthcare,
  • plastics and chemical,
  • transport,
  • manufacturing,
  • superannuation, banking and finance,
  • retail,
  • service industries,
  • travel and recreation,
  • the performing and creative arts,
  • government,
  • agriculture,
  • veterinary,
  • scientific research and technical organizations,
  • universities and schools, as well as
  • many different industry, trade and professional associations.

Are some of these statements true for you?

"I've just been promoted to my first management role and I thought everything would be easier when I had a team of people to work with me. But in some ways it's even harder. How do I get people who used to be my peers to do what I tell them?"

"I've been managing people for years. You'd think it should be easy by now. But I must be missing something. As soon as I think I've got things sorted everything changes and the Board expects even more. There must be an easier way to do some of these things!"

"With different personalities reporting to me it is difficult to please everyone. Sometimes it's impossible to please anyone! How do I know I've made the right decision?"

"My biggest challenge is getting the right balance between my team members showing me everything in great detail and not keeping me informed about what tasks they are doing. How do I give myself the time and space for my own tasks and thinking time? I've explained that I too have KPI's that need to be met."

"Interacting with staff can be really hard work and is emotionally, mentally and physically tiring at times. I know these people are my organization's greatest assets but how do I get the message across that whilst I value their input, the final outcome may not be exactly as they perceive it should be?"

"Leading people who have more experience or technical knowledge than me is very challenging. It is sometimes hard to motivate them and they can be the blockers when I try to implement changes designed to improve our current performance. How can I motivate people who just don't want to be motivated?"

Clients are most likely to be successful working with us if:

You're good at what you do, yet you know you could be better. You are committed to becoming the best you can be and you are willing to invest your time and effort in improving yourself.

You care about your work and your people. You enjoy what you do, you give it your best and you know you really can make a difference. You encourage excellence in your people and you support them in achieving their full potential.

You are keen to contribute and share your own experience and wisdom, to help other participants learn what you know. We know all the people we work with have their own unique gifts and contribution to make. We value your experience and expertise and encourage you to practice your personal leadership by sharing it and contributing to the growth and development of other participants. We usually notice that the people who gain the most are the same ones who contribute the most.

You want practical, proven and effective leadership information and ideas, that you can use immediately. You don't want to be overwhelmed with academic theories, complex information or thick treatises for comprehension and dissection. If you want to complete a formal academic qualification (and there are many good reasons to do so) our programs are not what you are looking for. We are committed to giving you the essential, practical real-world skills you can use to lead, right now.

You adhere to the highest standards of honesty and integrity. If you want to take ethical shortcuts we're not for you. If you want to succeed at the highest levels in business, we'd like to help you.
