If so, then this program is for you.

Enhancing capability and leveraging opportunities


The program is targeted at equipping governance, risk and compliance (GRC) professionals with the communication, stakeholder management and negotiation skills they need to have greater impact – elevating the professional in the eyes of the business, with the aim of securing more valuable GRC outcomes for the business. This program can be conducted in a group setting or be run as a one on one coaching program. For further details: Program Brochure


Today’s organisational environment is complex and ambiguous.  It is also constantly changing as it responds to both internal and external forces that drive change.  Leaders today need to understand how to thrive in this dynamic environment and be equipped to lead themselves and others with an adaptive, consciously constructed and responsive approach. If you want to elevate your ability (and the ability of your leaders) to secure progress by being equipped with the behavioural and leadership skills to best challenge, inspire and engage others during change, then this program is for you.

This Program helps leaders secure better decisions, sustained progress, and greater team engagement and stakeholder buy in. If you’re tired of wasting time in endless meetings where no decisions are made, and feeling frustrated with a lack of decision progress, then this program is for you.

Drawing on behavioural economic and neuroscience principles, you’ll learn how to apply a tailored decision making framework and process to diverse circumstances, and how to create the environment conducive to progressive decision making.  This approach will help you gain more traction, and deliver better and more sustainable decisions and outcomes.

Change is everywhere, which means that knowing how to position yourself to adapt, respond and thrive in a complex, ever-changing working world isn’t just an option, it’s essential. The Thriving Through Change program is designed to help leaders and team members find ways to positively navigate their way through change. To do this, each person needs to understand what is going on for them psychologically, cognitively, emotionally and physiologically. By gaining insight into these elements, individuals are better able to reflect on and respond to changing circumstances. While the program’s approach is underpinned by science, the course activities are practical so that the individual walks away with a toolkit to help them thrive through change. This program is conducted in a group setting. For further details: Program Brochure


Everyone finds change hard, however, there are often undiscovered reasons holding us back from changing and reaching our goals.  This highly personalised program will take you on an enlightened program of self discovery.  It will help you uncover the real reasons why you may be finding it hard to change, and how your unconscious goals can sabotage your desired goals. The program works one on one with a highly experienced coach, who will guide you through a series of activities that are designed to help you move forward positively and optimistically with your life’s goals.

Negotiation skills are fundamental to career and life success. As you transition through your career and in everyday life situations you’ll be faced with decision points and events, where the outcome will pivot on your ability to negotiate well. Successful negotiation requires an understanding of yourself, the people you are negotiating with and the context of the situation. There are specific approaches, tools and techniques you can learn to equip you to secure the negotiated outcome you want. Through this two day program you will learn those skills – having the opportunity to put them into practice and walking away ready to use them in your everyday life.

For leaders wanting to achieve greater engagement and buy-in from stakeholders and employees, this masterclass will give you an understanding of how humans react and respond to change, along with practical tools to apply change management techniques to influence and drive behavioural change to ensure effective and sustainable organisational and team outcomes. You will also be equipped with insights into your own leadership behaviour and what elements may need to change so you can best lead yourself and others in a complex, changing work environment. This Program is conducted in a group setting, and is tailored to the specific needs of each organisation.   Please contact us to discuss this program and the options available.
