Increase Leadership Effectiveness
It goes without saying, that good management skills produce good results. But this is not the full story. Certainly, a strong set of management skills will ensure you get results, but getting extraordinary results from ordinary people requires more than just a finely-honed set of management skills.
Managers who get extraordinary results, work alongside the people that help them achieve their goals and are distinguished by the fact that they are not just managers, but also leaders. Those who get extraordinary results tend to be extraordinary leaders.
Using a combination of individual assessment insights, customized training workshops and coaching support, we help organizations increase leadership effectiveness and build high performing leadership teams.
Transform Your Leadership Culture
Those who get EXTRAORDINARY results tend to be EXTRAORDINARY leaders.
Hire the Right Leaders
A critical starting point before embarking on a development plan is to consider if the individual has what it takes to be a successful leader:
Leadership Assessment Process
The Profile XT assesses for Job Fit against a customized performance model (benchmark) for a position based on a composite of the candidate’s cognitive abilities, behavioural tendencies and interests. It provides insights as to how a candidate would fit within the organization and its culture. A suite of reports is provided that support all facets of the employee life cycle from hiring through to performance management, leadership development and succession planning.
The Leadership Report takes the findings from the completed Profile XT and illustrates how a leader’s personal characteristics, motivations and strengths and challenges relate to six critical leadership skills required in today’s workplace. These insights help to identify expected leadership potential and development opportunities.
Develop Individual Leadership Skills
Depending on the individual’s role and responsibilities, we provide two distinct streams to support their development: 1. Management which focuses on day-to-day practical management and 2. Work of Leaders which focuses on strategic leadership.
Both programs are powered by the Everything DiSC® assessment, which is a personal awareness and developmental tool. Paired with a customized training program, it provides leaders with insights into their own preferences and tendencies, how they relate to others, and helps them develop actionable strategies to improve their interactions and leadership effectiveness.
For those in or moving into a people management role, Management teaches managers to successfully engage, motivate, and develop their people. It is proven to increase the effectiveness of anyone in a management role. Participants deepen their understanding of themselves, their direct reports, and their own managers using the DiSC model, while learning how their management style influences their approach to decision-making, time management, and problem solving. Participants walk away with concrete strategies to help them adapt to the styles of their direct reports, enabling them to bring out the best in their people, no matter where they are.
- Discover individual DiSC management style and approach
- Explore strategies for effectively directing and delegating and motivating others
- Develop action plan to support ongoing development
For those moving into more senior leadership roles, Work of Leaders helps to create impactful leaders through the process of Vision, Alignment, and Execution. With one unified model of leadership, it helps leaders understand their own leadership styles and how their tendencies influence their effectiveness in specific leadership situations. It focuses on the tangible steps needed to improve performance and lead a group toward desired outcomes.

Build High-Functioning Leadership Teams
Beyond individual leadership development, Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team helps organizations build high-functioning senior management and executive teams.
The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team
The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team is a team development program based on the model developed by Patrick Lencioni in his book, “The Five Dysfunctions of a Team”. In it, he identifies the five interrelated behaviors that are essential to a healthy, well-functioning team: 1) building trust, 2) mastering conflict, 3) achieving commitment, 4) embracing accountability, and 5) focusing on results. Using a combination of individual, team and progress reports, leadership teams learn to work together more effectively and efficiently to enhance organizational capacity and deliver on critical drivers.
