6 Day Neuro-Leadership Workshop – Frontline Leaders


Our services are based on experiential learning where participants learn by doing, a philosophy that is used in all our training programs, workshops, and business improvement engagements. Our consultant will utilise a collaborative approach that engages staff, challenges thinking, transfers knowledge, builds capabilities and ensures buy-in, building the organisations’ skills and capability through discussion and interaction, and providing participants with the confidence required to continue to develop the continuous improvement culture.

This unique program builds holistic skills and knowledge for frontline leaders to stand alone by working directly on their own practices by providing leadership and personal development that drives the right performance and behaviour through the organisation.

The key areas covered in the Leadership Program for Frontline Leaders include:

Element 1 – Creating a productive climate through intentional leadership

Covers topics including how to effectively lead and manage self and others to maximise people’s potential. Using frameworks, leaders explore the basics of brain and how it drives behaviour. We examine self-transforming leadership, different personality types in order to understand our self and our impact more fully.

Element 2 – Decision Making

Covers both conceptual and perceptual factors affecting decision making. Using the neuroscience of decision making we can see how our brains defaults guide our thinking. The traps we fall into at the highest level such as biases, fatigue and how to avoid or mitigate them.

Element 3 – Collective intelligence and Intentional Collaboration

Covers how to tap into the mindsets of others to foster collaboration. This element explores how we can increase our ‘tribal’ communications to stop the waste of poor interactions. We explore fixed, growth, preventive, and promotional mindsets in order to develop the ever-elusive interdependent culture with a benefit mindset.

Element 4 – Fostering Organisational Resilience

Covers where our focus goes as an organisation. How we can create brain friendly goals that people will proactively use to guide their work. We explore habits to create sustainability through productive mental shortcuts. Leaders develop a strong understanding of how to build resilient teams through feedback and managing individuals to reach their potential.

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 And Regulating

  • An understanding of what an effective leader is
  • Understand how to manage themselves
  • Acquire insights about temperament and personality type
  • Explore our brain and how we can use it effectively to lead
  • Making effective decisions
  • Manage interactions the adult way

The development of a leader starts with the journey of self-awareness of their emotions, their social interactions and where their attention is focused. To become effective leaders, we must learn what is happening in our brain and how to ‘train and ride the elephant’.

Understanding the neuroscience of our brain gives us an insight into how we think and how we behave. 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 Teams

  • An understanding of what an effective leader does
  • Create productive team members
  • Create engagement
  • Create the desired culture within a team
  • An understanding of the nature of work
  • Create intention into reality by providing role clarity
  • Understand team dynamics
  • Effectively assign tasks
  • Adapt leadership styles
  • Develop effective communication processes
  • Provide feedback to help their 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. Leaders can create protective or productive team members so understanding how to create a psychologically safe environment is critical to productivity. 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 –  Innovation Through People

  • Using collective intelligence
  • Harness innovation through leading effectively
  • Create interdependent teams
  • Understand growth and benefit mindsets
  • Explore motivations
  • Understand why we may resist change

Using collaborative team process models, a leader can create interdependency and employ intentional models and frameworks to move the team into an innovative state. Understanding why we resist change and how to overcome it in individuals is critical to effective implementation of innovation.

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

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 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 Frontline Neuro Leadership

They offer the opportunity for leaders to horn their skills and share their experiences through tools and techniques. The workshop is suitable for

  • Operation 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
  • Self-care and self-improvement Build inclusion and employees will feel more committed not just to their teams, but to themselves.
  • Self-regulation a sense of inclusion helps us manage our own thoughts and feelings, rather than letting them consume us.
