EXPECT A DIFFERENT EXPERIENCE.

We understand how the brain learns, and so we structure our trainings to ensure quality. This means the approach taken is more comprehensive and designed for life-long learning as opposed to 'tick-box-leadership-training'.

No Half Haircuts

Squeezing our bigger trainings into half-the-time, is a little like giving someone half a haircut. We just wouldn't do it! The brain is complex, sustainable results require a comprehensive approach that understands how the brain wires new information.

No Broad Brush

Broad brush leadership trainings attempt cover too many themes and lack depth, meaning the application gets lost. Our trainings focus on specific leadership themes, so we can deep-dive into skills, methodology and robust application.

No One Gets Lost

Our open trainings have a maximum of twelve people on them, so no one gets 'lost in the crowd' and everyone gets the space to deepen their learning, have their needs met and engage fully in the training.

FAQ’s

Is this training the right one for me?

This is one of a few trainings I run, so do look at the others to make sure you select the right one for you. For Leadership Intelligence, do this training if you want to develop your own internal capability as a leader. Put differently, do this training if you want to develop greater confidence and determination, increase mental strength and stretch your own personal leadership.

What's the value for my employer?

Previous participants advocate this training based on both personal value and workplace value. In a nutshell, the greater your capability as a leader, the greater value you can add back at work. Specifically, participants report greater confidence through times of change, more resilience when things get hard and an improved ability to develop soltuons both independantly and collaboratively.

Will I find this training a challenge?
In short, if you’re not challenged by this training, I’m not doing my job. However, challenged to ‘stretch’ not ‘stress’. The goal is for you to leave this training excited by what you can achieve, which will potentially be more that you thought!

Why four days?
Four days is a chunk of time to be out of the workplace, but as with all my courses, I provide a quality experience not a tick box exercise. Leadership training works with the brain’s hardwiring and your hardwiring has be forming since birth (actually just before), and so if you want to achieve real development that’s sustainable, you need focused training that understands how the brain wires and rewires. A shorter training may tick the box, but I’d seriously question the quality.

How is the training structured?
Great question! Let me answer that using key principles that make up the structure…

1: Science base – You’ll hear the science behind each part of the content, not so much to feel lectured and academically drowned, but just enough to add to your insights and relate what you hear to your real life experience.

2. Form – As a leadership specialist, my training also includes Neuro Linguistics and brain-based training methodology. Broken down, it means I train according to how the brain learns … each part of the content is presented in terms of why it’s important, what the tool (or model or skill) is, how to apply it and how versitile it is. There’s a method here that makes it simple and accessible for you to have a comprehensive understanding of how a tool works and how to apply it.

3. Practical – Learn by doing. On my trainings you’ll be busy; I aim to minimise the ‘sit and listen’ parts and maximise ‘go do’ parts.

4. Layered training – This means that each part of the training connects to and builds on previous parts.

5. Meta training – In short, I model what I train as I’m training it … maximum sensory congruence!
