6 Day Neuro-Leadership Workshop – Senior 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 organisation’s 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 current leaders by working directly on their own practices. It differs from traditional programs as it has a strong neuroscience approach to leadership. It taps into the lead indicators of motivation.

The objective of our Leadership Program for Senior Leaders is to create a climate of productivity through displaying senior leadership people skills.
The program provides individual tools and techniques to their own work, so that they can lead and manage the implementation of a continuous improvement culture.

The workshop is aimed at creating maximum team member ownership, accountability, and engagement. The program comprises a combination of elements aimed at facilitating behavioral change through the application of specific concepts and techniques, tailored to suit the senior leadership team. The direct and immediate application into more effective leadership for teams reinforces the learning and is immediately converted into improved decisions, improved team engagement and lower levels of resistance and conflict.

The Leadership Program for Senior Leaders is designed to equip our senior leaders with current and future skills to:

  • Build and lead a high performing organisation
  • Lead and manage themselves
  • Motivate individuals and teams
  • Positively impact culture now and in the future
  • Promote collaboration and continuous learning within their teams
  • Tap into the drivers of people to enhance productivity, improve staff retention and attraction
  • Proactively manage individuals within a team

The Leadership Program for Senior Leaders is delivered using key activities involving 4 elements delivered over 6 days of training. The gaps between the training sessions are used for the participants to apply their learnings.

For an organisation to produce its strategic intent, senior leaders need to look first at themselves, to identify who they are and whether they are a leader that someone would wish to follow or not.

The development of people starts with the journey of self-awareness and how to regulate. We work with whole self as have a significant impact day-to-day culture. The approach we take, the focus we have and way we make decisions.

A sense that I can speak up, own mistakes, and learn is critical in team members and it is the leader’s role to create that climate of trust, learning and risk. This event introduces the concept of psychological safety to senior leaders and their role in creating this productive operating space.

We know that high turnover, absenteeism, and high sickness levels can be attributed to a loss of significance, certainty, autonomy, relatedness, and fairness in the leader’s approach to individuals and the team.
