3 Day Neuro-Leadership Workshop – Frontline Leaders


This program has been designed for frontline leaders to stand alone or complement the Efficiency Works Lean training by providing leadership and personal development that drives the right performance and behaviour.

It is the ‘inside out’ program using models and frameworks from neuroscience.


To support leaders in their role of leading people.

Non accredited leadership program

This program is conducted in single or clustered days to allow for application of the leadership concepts and models.

Our leadership program is delivered in an effective way for leaders that are used to ‘doing’. It is a process that is both pragmatic in learning content and wholly applicable to the leader’s role. It transitions the leader from ‘doing’ to ‘thinking first then doing’.

Additional coaching is offered to embed the learning.

The Leadership Program for Frontline Leaders is designed to equip our leaders with a program that is delivered in an effective way for leaders that are used to ‘doing’. It is a process that is both pragmatic in learning content and wholly applicable to the leader’s role. It transitions the leader from ‘doing’ to ‘thinking first then doing’.

Event 1 – Managing Me

  • An understanding of what a leader does
  • Acquire insights about your temperament and personality type
  • Explore our brain and how we can use it effectively to lead
  • An awareness of the decision-making process and impacts/influences on that process
  • 3 habits for being an effective leader (Covey)

The development of a leader starts with the journey of self-awareness of their emotions, their social interactions and where their attention is focused.

We explore how our brain controls us and how we can adapt and regulate. Using tools such as Myers Briggs Type Indicator we can start to understand our self and our preferences and therefore our decisions that we make.

It is in this event that leaders are focused on regulating themselves so that they may use behaviours that lead to effective interactions with those around them.

Event 2 – Leading People

  • An understanding of the nature of work
  • Awareness of how you can motivate others
  • The ‘know how’ to provide role clarity
  • An understanding of how to effectively assign tasks
  • A toolkit to assist you with providing feedback and helping your team grow

Understanding how culture is formed and how the leader’s behaviour impacts on the team is the first step to creating a psychologically safe environment for your team. A safe environment maximizes people’s desire to do good work and harnesses engagement and motivation. Using deliberate concepts and models allows leaders to create the climate that will maximise the effort and energy of team members towards achieving the desired technical and commercial outputs.

It is in this event that leaders are focused on creating the right environment for individuals to want to be at work and do good work.

Event 3 – Leading Teams

  • An understanding of how to create an effective team culture
  • Further develop your team problem solving skills to create collaboration
  • An awareness for the triggers for team conflict and how to resolve

Using collaborative team process models, a leader can create interdependency and employ intentional models and frameworks to move the team into an innovative state.

It is in this event where participants are focused on the social processes that create innovation.

The Neuro-Leadership Program for Frontline Leaders is delivered using key activities involving 3 elements delivered over 3 days of training. The gaps between the training sessions are used for the participants to apply their learnings.

Event 4 – Fostering Organisational Resilience

  • Context is everything
  • Creating purpose
  • Habit formation
  • Goal pursuit
  • Developing mastery in self and others
  • Recognition, corrective, and constructive feedback

There are many moving parts to creating a resilient organisation and this element discusses fully the formation of productive habits that serve as shortcuts, energy savers and develop robust processes and actions.

We explore the setting of goals that produce strategic outcomes, tapping into the brains need for focus, intentions, and forward motion.

Leaders develop a strong understanding of how to sustain resilient teams through interpersonal process such as feedback, destructive conflict resolution and managing individuals to reach their potential no matter how uncomfortable the situation is.

On the completion of the workshop each participant will be award with a certificate of achievement, in outlining the values of Front-Line Neuro Leadership.

Additionally,  each participant will walk away with:

  • Develop skills to defuse contentious situations
  • Delivering Effective Feedback
  • Instilling Confidence and Vision
  • Leading with Emotional Intelligence
  • Gaining Influence & Buy-In

The learnings are relevant and applicable to all types of organisations and to all levels of management, administration, and delivery. The workshop is suitable for:

  • Operation Managers
  • Team Leaders
  • Succession Plan Leaders
  • Supervisors
  • Administration Managers
  • Business Improvement Managers
  • Change Managers

Efficiency Works utilises experienced and qualified trainers for all workshops and training courses. All trainers hold a Certificate IV in Training & Assessment (TAE40110), a qualification that reflects the roles of trainers in the vocational educational and training (VET) sector, and a requirement of the Australian Quality Training Framework for a structured VET program.

Our trainers utilise a collaborative approach that quickly engages with participants, and challenges thinking, transfers knowledge and builds skills. The trainer utilises a combination of theory, learning exercises, visual aids and group discussion to ensure that participants are fully engaged over the duration of the workshop.

The program is designed to provide participants with knowledge and skills in teamwide benefits of building inclusive habits, such as increased creativity and greater engagement.

  • Intelligent thought and reasoning through their ability to think clearly and perform given tasks
